Ribeiro on players being traded from Montreal and Carey Price

Just listening to Marinaro and Tieman on The Team 990 and they had Mike Ribeiro call in from Calgary to speak about his injury etc.

Some interesting quotes from Mr. Ribeiro:

''Guys always do better when they leave Montreal, look at Latendresse he has 20 goals''

''Getting traded was the best thing for me, I love Dallas and can focus on my game and life, I hope to be in Dallas for the rest of my career''

''I hope you guys leave Price alone, he is going to be one of the best goalies in the league when he is 28''

''Montreal media and fans expect too much from the younger players and are not patient with them''

That's very well said. I think Ribeiro needed to get away from the nightlife also.

Yes and no.

It's not always the case, see: Ryder, Tanguay, Kovalev, Koivu, etc.

It's mainly true with guys who haven't reached their potential yet.

Nothing new here.

But the people who can't figure it out never listen, even if it's from someone who's experienced first-hand and the poster boy for not trading guys too soon.

Higgins and Komisarek are yet to reach their potential.

Wow, the weasel has matured!

His soccer injury antics vs. Boston in the '06 Playoffs were downright embarrassing to us fans, his own teammates and all of Montreal.

Perhaps,it's mostly true for players who take thier role in Montreal for granted,and then get a wake-up call when they are traded.

Yea, but this works for any team, of course if you let a young player leave, he'll most likely be better elsewhere since he'll develop every season. It works both way, Pouliot has been a completely different player since leaving the Wild.

There are reports that Dallas would like to dump his salary if they could.

Why would you dump a talented point producing center like Ribeiro?

I have been to Dallas, Houston and the outskirts like San Antonio! Dallas is the major city and biggest city in Texas and it's no where close to Montreal in ''distractions''.

Sure, when you are making over $5,000,000.00 a year and are on TV all the time, you are going to get action! But when you are a star in your hometown (Ribeiro, Theodore etc.) you are constantly distracted!

Because the owner is running out of money, and the team has a self imposed cap of roughly 45 million

There is a nightlife, but being a hockey player in Dallas is small potatoes compared to here. He lives in relative anonymity there.

What about Gorges, Pouliot, Bégin, Bergeron, Darche, Hamrlik, Cammalleri, Gionta, Gomez, Kovalev, Kostopoulos, Huet... all those "outsiders" performed very well with us. So I guess SOME guys do better when they leave Montreal while SOME guys do better when they get to Montreal.

Btw... Latendresse scored 16 (at 19 years old), 16 and 14 (56GP) goals with us during his first three seasons. Contrary to popular belief, he was producing. Same thing can be said of Ribeiro btw: http://www.nhl.com/ice/playerstats.h...ewName=summary

However, Ribeiro has a point: some "fans" are extremely hard with our young players. For instance the Latendresse and Price boo-birds are... weird, very weird and pathetic persons.
