Rivet Should Retire.

Rivet is a good defensemen. But he's old, slow and gets beaten a lot. We have Boullion recovering, Streit who I'm telling you, will be a pimp before the second half of the season. We also have Ninimaa, and Souray on some nights performs(even though he gets beaten a lot too).

Either way. The habs need a fast defense to go with their fast style of play. Rivet does not fit the habs team very well anymore. All though on a certain level he is an enforcer and he is on many levels a skilled veteran, he's getting too old and slow.

Souray is just terrible in his end

The big problem is that Rivet is playing on the pp and he is getting tired.Niinimaa was picked up to do that and I dont understand why Carbo still plays Rivet on the pp.

Souray and Markov

Niinimaa and Streit

Not saying he's old. Saying he should retire. He just doesn't seem like he used to be.

Retire?

If Rivet doesn't sign with us his next contract, I can garantee you half the league will be interested by him.

Servicable right-handed defensemen, especially ironmen like Rivet, are a hot commodity in the NHL. Retiring at the peak of his career wouldn't make any sense for him.

How soon we forget - last year Rivet was stellar, he played a simple game and had a career year in points.

The following should be self evident - With the injuries to Dandenault and The Cube, every other d-man has to eat up more minutes than they should, when that happens guys get worn down and their play suffers. Also Rivet was hobbled this past game because he took a slap shot off the inside of his ankle.

More like 100% of the league will be interested in him.

You and me both. I simply don't understand how Habs fans can hate one of our best, most solid D-Men

OK, let me make sure I understand, Rivet should walk away from hockey because

A Streit will be procuring hookers for his teammates before season's end
B Bouillon will get better from the injury that the team has no idea when he will return from
C Although he is skilled and tough, he is getting older and slower, as opposed to our other defenseman getting younger and faster.
D Rivet will probably play his same style that he's played for the last 10 years, with adjustments,like the adjustments he made last year to compensate from the rule changes.
E Next year, if he is coming off a good year, he'll get an offer that the CH won't match, or if he has an average year he'll probably accept a lower offer and stay.
F Rivet is a right defenseman, probably 2nd on the depth chart behind Komi but ahead of Dandenault. While Dandy skates faster, Rivet moves the puck and positions himself better.

I don't have sex as often and with the same vigor that I used to but I don't think I'll give it up.

The habs better hope that Rivet resigns at the end of this season hes huge for us not only what he does on the ice but his leadership and work ethic are good example for younger players.

There is no way streit or yanni can play with the grit Rivet not in a million years in a galaxy far far away.

Sure he is not playing his greatest right now but then I guess a lot of guys should retire around the league, hell Ovechkin is only producing a point a game I think its his time to hang em up as well!

I agree. Ovechkin should also retire. Just not as good as he was last year.
