I used to powerskate with him at Martin Lapointe arena in VSP between 1999 and 2002.

He already took some powerskating lessons in the past, but maybe he wasn't that serious...maybe this yearm he's more mature and he's serious about inrpoving his game...

He got the talent and the linemates...if he put it all together, we will not be searching for our second line centre anymore...

If you were skating with Mario vincent it's not powerskating, it's more conditionning. Not saying it's better or worst, just saying it's not the same thing.

With all due respect, I know what powerskating is. Mario had a tendency to mix things up and I spent many Sunday 7 ams there doing nothing but powerskating. It is true that later on and especially during the summers, we did do more conditioning but there was powerskating, too.

The jury's still out folks... but at least he SEEMS to be going in the right direction.
I don't blame him... many of the clubs in Montreal are simply amazing.

Let's not be hasty. Such a rule would leave you, Gros Bill, Darz and myself as the boards only residents. Counter-proposal we have Gros Bill vette all posts and kill off the weak links? (No muss, no fuss, no mess and no muff posts)

Bill was born for that job. You'd never find the bodies.

That's great, no really I mean it.

Now if he would just move his legs it might help him out a little. Honestly, you can train all you want but if you don't give the effort none of it is going to help.

The jury is still out on this man.

Are you kidding? Hockey players (and all pro athletes), including Mike Ribeiro, party all the time... and party very hard. So hard I have no idea how they do it and are able to play hockey the next day. Then again they're in such good shape their bodies can take the beating and be fine the next day.

Actually this is a popular misconception. Hockey players are a rather sedate bunch. Now, dental hygienists, they are a wild and crazy bunch.

This is where he has finally learned to tie his skates. He looked like last year he was back with no laces again!
Someone should remind him.

good for him!! If people left him alone and stopped all the pressure, with the new linemates he may have this year he could very well hit 60-70 pts. I remember not that long ago when he was our top point man!!!! we all loved him then didn't we. I love being a habs fan, but way to much us so called fans ditch our boys at the first glimpse of a slump and then there is so much pressure they cannot perform. examples, Perrault, how many points did he get last year?

Sure Ribeiro has taken power skating in past offseasons, but his skating has also improved since his first years in the league. When he first broke in he was very slow, he still doesn't have a great stride, but he's come a long way, if this new instructor can help him get just a half a stride faster it could be the difference between 55 and 65 points this year. If he can get back to 20 goals and 45 assists like he had before the lockout I'd be more than happy with that production from our 2nd line centre, especially considering the emergence of Plekanec will probably eat up a bit of the icetime he had early last season.

Ribeiro gets a lot of heat because of the publicity he gets in the french media, but he does care about the team, he's always the first one to sign at a reasonable rate, he always wants to improve his game in the offseason and he has shown he can be a very productive 2nd line centre if given the opportunity. Technically it may have not been his sophomore season last year, but I'm gonna chalk it homore jinx as it was his 2nd season of real minutes.

For now I'm just gonna cross my fingers and hope that this positive news works out for the best. No one can deny Mikey's talents as a playmaker, or his outstanding hockey sense, with any extra jump it could make a world of difference. Just wait and see.
