Where do you find these stats? I've been looking for 20 mins, hah. 59% is amazing for Ribs, heck it's good for anyone.

On a side note, Downey was an excellent aquisition. Our fourth line is now something to be reckoned with.
Psst... its not Ribeiro... its that fan who hoped on the ice... don't tell anyone this, or more fans will try to make the team that way

Peace out

So long as they bring it like this guy, who'd want to stop them?

At the heart of the matter is Ribs,Kovy and Markov's vision ability.
Thier ability to think first then find the open man.
Tape to tape passes and not just a pass into someone's feet.

When the 3 are on the ice at the same time like on a PP the Habs are much more dangerous. Sure some passes get intercepted but the payoff if the sharp passes get through is a high % shot on goal and as a side benifit of a high % chance for a rebound.

Kovy tried to tell this to Begin about a month ago, stop taking 50ft shots on goal. The press came down on Kovy for seemingly blameing Begin but I don't think Kovy was wrong at all.
Taking 50ft shots is not a good play.

When Kovy is alone he never dumps it in, he tries to beat the defence all by himself, people think he is overdoing it, but he is right, better to try this then to dump it in.

Both plays are low % chances, but Kovy thinks and rightly so that of the two plays, his option has a better chance FOR HIM.

Is it the fact that Kovy makes more good decissions or is it that he makes less bad decissions ? Same thing to me !

Perezhogin and Kovy have a lot to do with the recent succes of Ribs. Put Koivu there instead and this line is dominating like the start of the season.

His value on the team is decreasing as well, he's seing less and less icetime these days. Hopefully he gets out of the slump after the olympic break.

Ribs had been doing well on any line he had been playing on since January. He's even in the +/- since 06. He's really worked on his game... I just hope he can keep it up and add some lower + upper body strength this off-season.

I cant even remember who was on the first line at the time. I want to say Yanic Perreault. I do remember perreault moving to the wing on the 1st line and having success.
Wasn't it Perreault & Audette who were givien a shot at the 1st line when Kovy came in. Was Ward given a shot?

He has been in the league for 5 years, what is he waiting for? Id wish the Habs paid me to be his personal trainer, he would learn the meaning of suffering...

I would say that Ribeiro has a lot to do with the recent succes of Kovalev.

Or could it be because he has the flu maybe! duh. Last night he was so pale, even for a finnish guy.

I have been one of Ribs most outspoken critics and even I have to admit that he is playing well. To me it looks like Kovalev really enjoys playing with Perezhogin and Ribeiro has some chemistry with both of them.

As for Koivu, he is still working hard. The flu has probably affected his performance in the last couple of games but if Gainey keeps him with Higgins and Ryder for a while, I think that line will eventually gel as well.

Zednik could be the odd man out. The Habs seem to win a lot of games when he isn't playing which brings into question the value he brings to the team.

He just got the flu like 2 days ago, has nothing to do with his icetime since the begining of February. If he continues to play like this after the olympic break, are you gonna say that he caught something in Turin?

I agree. He should've been more motivated last year. If he could add an additional 10 pds in the off season, it'd be fine.

Audette was long gone

The more I think about it, the more certain I am that Perreault was on the 1st line when kovy came in. It worked for a while but Julien was never a big fan of Perreault's and when the team started to struggle, kovy found his way on the first line and Perreault found himself on a 4th line with Darren Langdon

I agree with you, but I don't think the Perez-Ribs-Kovalev line will be together for the playoffs. I hope they do well till then, but I don't see Gainey having Kovalev on the second line during the playoffs, although in the playoffs, I'm quite sure he can score on any line.

Here go check his ice time... Played less last 3 games because of flu. Still around 17 mins... and played around 19 minutes all year long. So I don't where you got your information on his icetime. Maybe your just inventing stats like your sister!

His "Flu" only came 2 days ago. And also, look at his January icetime. Gainey's not using him as much as Claude.

Gainey is rolling 4 lines much more than Julien. It's not so much that Ribs is getting a lot more time, although he may be getting a bit more... it's more of a case of the fourth line actually getting some ice time. That has to come from somewhere, and in this case the somewhere is Koivu's line.

I could be wrong, but the team looks like it has two lines that are more or less equal. The third line is a bit of a drop off in skill level but what is important is that the 4th line is getting more than 1 or 2 minutes a game. That allows the other three lines to play a more up-tempo game than they were under the last days of Julien.
