Talking about former players, here are the one you could probably watch at the World Championship (cause it's just the preliminary roster:

Mathieu Garon - Canada
Cristobal Huet (of course) & Sébastien Bordeleau - France
Rene Vydareny, Marcel Hossa & Juraj Mikus - Slovakia

Well, you were focused on the "way better" part and the fact it's Erika Kostitsyn.

I don't think she can convince anyone, first very few people care what she thinks and the Ribeiro issue has been beaten to death.

I do think Ribeiro's been better than Plekanec this year, last year and they're a world apart in the PO(Plekanec is still very young though). I also think the Habs would be better with three legit scoring centers, I don't care if they wouldn't have had more points, but they'd have been a bigger threat in the post-season.

In the end it really doesn't matter, every team makes big mistakes. but only Bruins and Habs fans cling on to them so much.

Janne Niinimaa for the 12th scorer scorer during the reg season and top scorer in the playoffs so far.

How about some love for the tough guys? The 90's/00's had some gems. Todd Ewen, Brashear, Mario Roberge, Chris Murray, Gerry Fleming, Mick Vukota, Gino Odjick, Darren Langdon and the best of them all... Lyle Odelein. Each one of them is better than Ribeiro.

Interesting fact about Huet

It's the off-season. I'm out of things to say. I miss the Habs.

Anyway, I came across this interesting fact about Huet... he is the third all-time French-born scorer in NHL history (behind Paul MacLean and Philippe Bozon). Discuss.

Well, Paul MacLean was born in France, but he was actually canadian. So Huet is already number 2...

His father was serving with the Canadian Armed Forces in France when he is born, moved in Canada at the age of two.
He played for Canada national team as well as the Olympics in 1979-80.

MacLean is the Assistant Coach for the Red Wings, he was a good player with the Jets in the 80's with Hawerchuk....like Kolzig, Langway and others it looks like he was born there and raised in Canada...I guess Rod Langway is the alltime scorer from Taiwan then too???

Petrov was the first player i had that was my favorite...(I wasnt a fan until after the last cup win)

If his skill level and size had been as big as his heart seemed to be the guy would have been a Super Star...he did pot in 25 goals one year after going to Europe for a couple of years
