Apparently the coaching staff just let the reporters know that 8 players were playing despite being affected by the virus that kept Plekanec from playing.

The guys from L'AntiChambre are having a field day with this

Same rookie mistake happened with Houle/Tremblay combo in the Roy's fiasco deal.

We have lost tremendous talents because of panic moves.

Ribeiro was being nice to the fans, come on HF, don't make mountains out of mole-hills.

He loves the city, he's from here.

There are ways to celebrate goals against your old team in a classy way. Carlos Tevez scoring against West Ham when he left comes to mind. Ribs was a bit out of line. Really wasn't a reason for kicking his former team, is his hometown, when they were down.

So much fail in this team.

Everyone and their dog knew that we should've been the one getting the top prospect with Gomez. Gainey did the deal ass backwards.

And I agree with you about the "cancerous" players. If we would've instilled a strong presence in their development as players and human beings from the get-go. They would not have had an opportunity to become valueless cancers.

So does it mean they are still in the race for the 8th spot ? Or just another excuse to underperform and loose another home game ?

Agreed my friend in Blue, it was a point to illustrate how absolutely insane the McDonagh trade was. The 'reasons' for the other players were awful and built up and overblown (well except Grabovsky who did skip the plane ride and is a dirty ****).

That just shows the lack of judgement in this organization.

He's probably gone over the rage and is now at the part where he accepts that the team is just bad and there's just nothing you can do with it except send it out there and try to get them to play hard.

I really hope at some point, people come to understand this too. Chris Nilan said it best, people are expecting too much. We're a one-line team and we have a young defense. This team wasn't meant to compete for much.

I still don't understand the part where PG thought 2 minute-eaters on the blueline being replaced by 2 rookies was going to help us fight for a playoff spot this year.

We have a young team with a core of very key injured players. I agree with you.

So Dallas was able to keep a guy who is so cancerous for how many years now? According to reality, he is still in Dallas. And if he'd be THAT cancerous like how bad Grabs, Lats, Ribs or SKost were supposed to be, he would have been shipped out for a 8th rounder in a 7 round-draft. He is not.

He skipped the plane ride because they were scratching him over insignificant players who didn't deserve to play over him.

Obviously frustrated because he wanted to play and help the team; he flew to see his agent. To get him to demand that if Grabovski isn't going to play in the NHL, to send him down and let him play in the AHL.

He might have handled it incorrectly (he was young, is passionate, loves playing and makes mistakes like any other human). But in no way was he a cancer for this. The team should have realized the fire inside of this guy along with his high skill level. He should not have been dealt but at least we did get value for him (unlike most of our panic trades). It was stupid to trade it for Lang but that Centennial season ruined us.

I would had like to keep Hamrlik and the Wiz as much as the next guy, but PG taught that Markov would be back, and he re-signed Gill.

With Markov, Spacek, Gill, Gorges, Subban and Weber, the two rookies would not had played that much.

I I don't want to excuse him but he had a salary cap to respect too, thanks to Gomez ....
