In answer to the question..Garth Murray.
I've never heard Markov say that he'd love to stay in montreal and I personally think that he's a player who's really only out to play for the money. However, we do have a good amount of russian players so maybe he'll stick around. I've heard people say that Montreal has a european feel to it...so maybe he'll stick around cuz he likes the city.

I would love to re-sign him, but if Gainey traded him because contract negotiations were going nowhere...I'd understand.

Indifferent?... None of them. There's some that i would be happy to see leaving, and others that i would be sad to see leaving, but none that i would be indifferent... Well.... maybe Traverse...

Surprise, surprise. Rivet's the whipping boy because he's been on the ice for a few goals agaisnt early on in the season and struggled at times, like every other defenceman has I might add..

Never mind him challenging Iginla to a scrap (sticking up for his team when no one else was) and sparking his team to a win with that shorthanded breakaway goal and subsequent great celebration.

Never mind the shot he took off the foot that would have sidelined 90 per cent of the league's defencemen for the next game and more, but since the Habs were already severely shy on defenceman, Rivet sucked it up for the hundredth plus time as a Hab and played when he shouldn't have. For all we know he's still hampered by yhe injury, but Rivet would never complain about such a thing; he's old school.

Never mind that he's the longest serving Hab, a classy individual highly respected by his teammates and the captain in particular, the team's player rep and excellent with the media and fans despite all the crap he puts up with (including the booing)

Never mind that he would be snapped up by every other team in the league tomorrow if he were put on waivers

Craig doesn't skate like a ballerina and was on the ice for three goals against his last game - trade da bum!!!!

All of those are great and all but Rivet doesn't bring anything that Souray or Komisarek don't already. I love the guy's character and heart, but when it comes down to hockey...There are better options. When Dandy and Bouillon return, I don't see Rivet as anything more than a 6th or 7th, but of course he'll still get the big minutes, due to "how much he's done" for the canadiens.

Rivet definately,

never liked him since before the lockout even if he had a good year last year and, like it or not, even if he is an "okay" defenseman, we have too much "okay defenseman", Rivet should be replaced by a first pairing defenseman. By doing that we could resign Souray to keep our power play lethal.

I can live with Souray's mistake on defense if he can come up with 7 goals in 10 games, but i can't cope with seeing Rivet mess up on def (even if it's a little les than Souray), plus taking stupid penalties and polluting our powerplay's second wave.

Also Niinima, why the hell did we trade our second line center for THAT? I know we needed a defenseman, but come on, he's just bad.

I'll look at it the other way. No matter who they are traded for, i got to admit, Higgins, Koivu, and Komisarek are the only guys it would pain me to see leave.

6th or 7th? That's quite harsh... IMO Rivet is a legitimate 4-5th D who's salary is directly related to his devotion to the Montreal Canadiens. Do I think we could have a better player for less money, yes. I also think that both Souray and Markov should be priorities, whatever Rivet's status is.. but I also have a high consideration of his off ice presence, and would hate to see him go elsewhere. Quite a puzzle, good luck Bob.

Well now that the usual suspects are gone, Rivet was the next likely candidate for whipping boy.

Its interesting many posters who defended Brisebois against his bashers, are now bashing Rivet. I wonder why???

Personally I think that in the new NHL, we're going to see less and less defenceman like Rivet and more and more defenceman like Streit, Markov, Spacek, etc. Though I would keep Rivet over Streit (for now, even though I'm a fan of streit and think he will blossom soon), I'd keep bouillon over Rivet, seing as Bouillon is a player who can get the attack going. The reason I'd be indifferent to letting Rivet go, is because I don't think we can keep Him, Markov AND Souray...Therefore it's really an easy choice.

I really like Rivet as a person and for his character on the ice, but with komi's emergence, Bouillon's eventual return, and our UFA situation this off season, he's the odd man out, IMO. I'd rather get something for him while we can.

It's been a great run, buddy, but I'm afraid your time's almost up.

Yep! I agree 100% with that...
That would make me sad to see Rivet goes, it seems like he's been there forever..

Nniinniimmaa would go first though.

They are all a part of the team and I have good and bad memories for every player on the team; I can't name one I don't care about.

Thinking about it though; this feels ridiculous to say. I want it to be clear that this is from a hockey point of view; it almost seems like a "sentimental " thing but don't worry, it's not the case.
before i read this (in bold), i told myself "man, the guy needs to talk"

We don't always agree tb, but I wish I'd said this.

I can't think of a player that I dislike, someone who just annoys me to know end.

So, whoever was included in a deal, if the deal makes them a better team, I'm ok with it.

I was thinking that though he's a better d man than Souray in terms of his own end, despite the last 10 games, he doesn't bring a standout ability if you're building a D corps. You can put up with Souray passing into his partners feet or getting caught flat footed if he has a shot that gets you back into games. Rivet has to be solid and consistent because he doesn't have a 'fallback quality', if that makes sense.

There are teams that are looking for experienced D, there always are, but moreso at the deadline. SJ is a prime example. Thing is, teams looking to bolster are hoping to make a run so would only give up futures. Aren't we kind of hoping to be a team with some aspirations ?

So you aren't indifferent at all, since you'll gain some sort of perverse pleasure if it happens.

For me it's Bonk. Don't care whether he stays or goes.

Good point. Though I keep thinking he is expendable 'cause a good defensive corps will never have enough solid puck-moving d-men and while we mostly think Markov should stay, and now some say Souray should as well, Komi is here to stay.....to improve our D, we must make some changes.....Or if by improving the D, it must mean to keep Rivet with those 3, well it has to exclude Dandy and Bouillon and play Rivet accordingly not as #3 but as #5-6 where he belongs, especially in a great defensive corps.....But I agree that nobody cal be indifferent to what Craig has done for this team, I just can't believe that.

I wouldn't be "indifferent" about any trade the Habs made... even if it's a player I don't like "indifferent" wouldn't be the way to describe my reaction! We'd have a 400-page thread about it no matter who it was.

That said, I can't believe how many people are on Rivet's case. At least it gives my ignore list a good chance to expand exponentially, however, since I pretty much have to assume that anybody who thinks Rivet is a 6th-7th d-man or should be waived (or should in any other way be an odd man out or taken off the team) is probably not worth reading opinions from in the future.

uuh you're confusing Rivet with Komisarek.

And I have been on Rivet's case for years, he's a horrible defenseman in his own zone. He might be liked by his teammates but it doesn't make him a good player.

He makes REALLY dumb mistakes in his zone, *every year*. This is nothing new.
