He also said it was nice to be on a team with big, talented forwards... and that it was nice to be in a city where the media focuses on the team and not on individuals and not nitpicking every little mistake.
well. He cannot say that we didn't want to come to san Jose and that he hate that city and etc. Its called PR.
In the same way Gorges said he was happy to come to Montreal.
I'm not saying otherwise... but we've seen many players crying when they got traded (Gretzky, Smyth, etc.)... I'm not saying I want ex-habs players to cry once they get traded but we can't say a lot of players were sad leaving the club, they always mention that they expected to be traded and they comment on the fact that there is too much pressure in montreal !
Craig Rivet: The style I was playing in Montreal was the complete opposite of San Jose. We were defensive minded on everything. He're our forwards are talanted and big and we use that on the forecheck. The coaches tell me to help pressure the attack. I have to get used to it and it will take a couple more games before I'm 100 percent confident in everything I'm doing each game.
Ya, we all knew you didn't know much about the guy...only what you read in La Presse or heard on 100%.
Rivet is showing his worth in San Jose, after playing for a team somewhere else he probably wont want to come back to the habs, its too bad really we could use a defenceman of his tallent and pricetag who else is going to replace him? Boullion?.
