I can't beleive Habs traded Chelios for Denis Savard. Chelios is still playing play-off hockey 18 years later.

We got what we could for what Ribeiro was worth at that time! Ribeiro needed a fresh start with a new team and he got it, nobody knew he would turn out to be a decent hockey player....cuz he sure didn't show it in Montreal!

It will only be a bad deal if the habs face Dallas in the SCF and he buries them. Otherwise, it's just business.

Well, I have to admit that I was glad to see him go. And I never thought he'd bring it when it mattered (i.e., in the playoffs), so I'm pretty surprised. Well, good for him I guess. Looks like the trade was a great thing. We have no idea if he would have developed the same way in this organization though. Anyways, Ribs is the past, let's look to the future!

There were dressing room issues and he had to go. If you asked anyone before the trade and I mean ANYONE, nobody would have predicted a turnaround like this for Mike.

I say good for him, he never would have done anything like that playing for the Habs. That contract he signed now is looking more like a bargain.

I guess I'm glad Ribeiro has turned into quite a player. No reason to wish bad fortune to him. How things would have developed here is a question we can't answer. I suspect that being moved had something to do with the guy taking some things more seriously. I didn't think he had it in him, so good for him.

3 years ago, every bodies want to get rid of him, Carbo and Gainey too. We dump him because he brings more bad than good.

The guy change, that's it.

I liked Riberio. I still don't understand how you give up a 60pt player that easily.

Bad move.

There's no question the trade woke him up. I heard him saythat he really changed his approach to off-ice and off-season training.

He was a bit of a project for Dallas that worked out. It was maybe a coin-toss as to whether he'd wake up and get stronger and more determined or simply plateau as a one-dimensional 40-50 point guy who could only take up space among the top six. At the time, his value was limited.

That trade woke him up. He was always good, but now he's gotten rid of his attitude.

I repeat...I do not think he would ever have become this good in Montreal. Not because he didn't have the talent, just because of the mentality he had while he was here. He never had to train hard, he was very popular, everybody knew him...he basically thought he was king in Montreal and enjoyed it way too much.

Rewind to the start of the 2006-2007 season, he's shipped off to Dallas and he is a big NOBODY over there. He matures and becomes a PROFESSIONAL and we are seeing the results today. He had too many bad influences in Montreal to become the professional he is today...

Hey, it was a prediction. The guy had a rebirth. He came through the birth canal with a better attitude. That didn't seem likely to happen to a lot of people.

Oddly enough, I'm listening to Use Your Illusions 1 right now. 'Sometimes it feels like I'm beating a dead horse. I don't know why you're bringing me down.' Fitting.

Have to agree. Bob got taken to the cleaners on this one.

But I don't want him back. Not even a little bit.

No one ever doubted his skills, it was his drive, passion and character that scared NHL GM's.

Gainey got what he could for a player that would have never turned out to be the player he is in Dallas in Montreal.

Same will happen with Ryder when he leaves and gets his chance to play on the top 2 lines and PP...people will be saying I can't believe we just let him walk away.

It's true, sorry.

He got benched late last year with Dallas. Tippett made a comment about them not needing soft, perimeter offense, can't remember the exact context. I wonder if that sort of turned a light on, with him. He plays a different game now, more apt to battle for loose pucks. He plays with Morrow too, who sets a tremendous example regarding work ethic.
