Ribeiro; to believe or not to believe, that is the question!

So-so first period, awful second period salvaged by that last second Zed goal, much better third period to finish off strong and not lose the lead (is this a new trend boys? I like it). 3 PP goals on 4 chances..that is a really positive sign.

Strong performance by Theo, he will be ready for the Laffs.

We were lucky that the Pens missed a lot of opportunities, however, we came back stronger un the 3rd period, which leads me to believe that the guys saw their mistakes and will come up stronger against the Leafs, which should be a good game to watch, eh

All in all, it's the results that matter, and they are awful good so far.

My thoughts exactly. It's great to see the power play working.

Just a little statistic about the Icetime


Juneau : 20:44

Bulis : 18:56

Dackell : 20:09

---------------

Ribeiro : 15:13

Ryder : 12:22


I think Ryder and Ribeiro were the 2 best player of the team this night , 20:44 min for Juneau is too much . Ribeiro need at least 18 min and Ryder 15 min

Habs didn't play their best game, but played well on the PP.

Special teams will be key this year for the Habs, as we were awful last year in PP and SH situations.

Signs of better coaching:
1. PP and the PK are effective.
2. We are allowing less shots on net than the opponent

Now you know why Juneau played that much.

Lemieux gets 2nd star for a power play assist. Ribs puts up a goal and 2 assists, a goal, game winner at that, for Zednik and an assist to boot, and Ribs gets 3rd star, nothing for Zednik.

Coach got us the two points - does it really matter how tonight's ice time was alloted? I mean we won 4-1 and outshot the opponent 32-23, so I for one am not about to question that.

EDIT: Excellent point made by KILLger above on Juneau's ice time.

Ryder should be playing 25 minutes a game

Good post, a win is a win, like you said we outshot em and it was a nice sound win. Who cares how long they all played

It's all about the politics... It is not fair, but life ain't fair anyway.

They gave it to Lemieux because of what he is. Not the best game by our Habs, many defensive mistakes, many penalty, not looking so good defensively at times. But the PP was great, Hossa-Ribs-Zed too and we were strong in the 3rd

No. Mario looks sluggish and uninvolved 5 on 5. On the PP he's still dangerous, but he's a shadow of his former self at even strength. He definitely didn't deserve a star tonight.

I thought Souray played a heck of a game. Great on the PK and i think he woke the club up a bit when he beat on Abid.

Nice to see the habs win so convincingly again today.......13 goals in the last 3 games looks really good. Ryder got another point which is always nice to see for a rookie....this kid has impressed me a lot so far....lets hope the success of the team and players continues

A question to the board, "Does Koivu's return balance our team and team depth even more or does it hinder the ice time and progress of Riberio and what happens to the Ryder/Perreault/Audette line? Where and who does Saku play with? You can't argue with Saku's talent and what he means to this team, but you know what it's like sometimes players pick up the slack when their best player is out, do we keep it up or do they say Saku's back the pressure to perform is off us now??? I hope not.

I hope Saku comes back and adds another element to our team and attack, let's keep it going boys.

One other thing, Theo is back to his 2001-2002 form.......big time!

He looks great and was playing that way in the pre-season too, not to mention the D looks alot more solid this season with Souray there and Brisebois is playing pretty good as are Hainsey, Markov, Rivet and Quintal (some will disagree).

Julien's "NJ" style D is working and creating scoring chances for this fast team.

yet another good performance by all players. Its really great to see the team execute the "system" with such ease and poise. Offence i think is a bonus because i dont think the system has a 4 and 5 goal a night clause in it.
Ribeiro is really impressive and should be the #2 center when Koivu comes back on saturday (i hope)

The dilemma then is where will they put Perreault who's been great so far this year and is always dangerous not to mention goto guy for important faceoffs.

The checking line is also doing a fine job. Juneau and Dackell seem to have good chemistry together and imo should not be seperated at this point.
That leaves the 4th line to play around with but ice time is somewhat limited for those players.

"un joli casse-tete" as my french friends would say!

The Juneau - Dackell duo will be the fourth line with another player like Sundstrum, my line proposals with Koivu returning to the line-up would be:

Ward - Koivu - Audette:
Audette and Saku work well together, Ward and the other two would benefit playing together. Ward would be their mucker and grinder and the other two can do what they do best.

Hossa - Riberio - Zednik:
The best line right now, been good together since the last quarter of last season.

Ryder - Perreault - Bulis:
Ryder and Perreault work great together, so did this line in the pre-season, Bulis needs to be surrouded by more offense too.

Dackell - Juneau - Sundstrum:
Thery worked well together last season, plus they aren't exactly only defensive minded, they can score too.

Begin and Langdon can be inserted into the line up when needed, and Higgins would benefit with more ice time in Hamilton.

Let's not forget Perreault's hot start, last season. Then, he stunk it up for the remainder of the season... I'd say we move him and hope for the best with Ribeiro.
