Steve H"ott"

Has anybody been watching this guy play? He's given the Dallas Stars an amazing playoff. He gets in people's face, he's fast, he causes problems for opponents. He can play on many different lines. He is also a big hitter and fighter.

Who is the habs Steve Ott?

I don't think the Habs really have someone like Steve Ott. I think that sort of player would be great to have, to add a little toughness and grit to our team. Kostopolous is a player who comes to mind, but is not exactly of the same mold.

Edit: Breakermania beat me to it

I respect a guy like Ott. For a player set in a grinder, tough guy role, he is able to put the puck in the net quite often. He doesn't put up huge points, but he contributes offensively in a non offensive role.

Replace Lapierre by Ott and you finally get a real 3rd-4th liner! Lapierre is useless. But Ott wont be shy to dropp the gloves for his teammates AND is a good penalty killer.

Dallas has a lot of those big character players. Problem is they don't have the primary scoring needed to take that next step. The Habs seem to have the reverse problem, lots of scoring, no big character players willing to do anything to win.

Plus the Dallas saviour that a number of posters on here absolutely love and start threads about him all the time.

Well he scored as many goals in Dallas' last 10 playoff games as Janne Niinimma scored for us in this year's playoffs. Once again Mikey Ribs stepped up when it counted.

Just thought I'd point that out.

Yet you do realize he's still 6th or something like in pts in the playoffs?
As much as people hate him, you do have to admit he didn't do too badly in the playoffs this year...

I'd like to see how many points he'd get without Morrow. All of Ribeiro's goals were on the PP and none were GWG. His point production went down when it counted most. 6th place is a little overblown for his actual contribution.

Begin is our poor man Steve Ott.

I like Ott a lot. He's a pain in the ass to play against , can contribute offensively (not much but he stll can) and defensively and he's not as big as a jerk as Avery.

Thank you for kindly pointing that out to us. Maybe you should have done it a game earlier, before the lights went out for Dallas as that invertebrate racked up a minus-3.

Don't reveal it.Now you'll be considered persona on grata by the jaune supporters.


Beware!Ribeiro was supposed to be a far better playoff performer than Koivu according to some insightful experts,don't forget!

I believe we don't really have a guy like ott. Lapierre might be fast and a piss off for opponents, but honestly who am i more afraid of. A guy like lapierre or a guy like Ott who even his beard scares me.

Of course his pts would be down if he wasn't playing with Morrow!

On the other hand Morrow would have less goals (pts) if there wasn't someone giving him the puck at the right time. Are you suggesting Morrow would produce the same if you just transplant any ole C in Ribs position? (albeit Richards would probably do a decent job...whether or not he would do better or not...no idea but beyond him?)

And yes, his contributions may be overblown but it certainly wasn't insignificant. He certainly did better than any of our centers, not that I would take him over Plecky or Koivu.

To say he sucks and only gets his pts because of Morrow is a little off kilter.

Saw this thread from the forum listing...

If anything Ribeiro stepped up his play during the playoffs while Ott didn't play to the level he had established during the regular season.

Seriously? Even if I may defend the guy when I feel it is deserving I would never go to battle with Ribs over Koivu...

I agree that ribeiro did step up in the playoffs, but most of the Detroit Dallas series he was invisible. I have nothing against Ribeiro. But its the little things that Ott would do that grabbed my attention. You can't expect Ott to be a big point getter, but you could expect him to motivate the team by a big hit or a solid play.
