If Ribeiro had Thornton's injury I don't think we'd see him at all until next season.

Just remember one thing though any player can break out during any game. Kovalev has struggled with the Habs but he was great in game 3. I wouldn't jump the gun on Thornton just yet.

You're right: the masses can certainly jump to conclusions when they have no experience nor medical opinion on such matters, and look like fools.

I'm not saying Ribeiro didn't put on a show here, but the amount of ignorance and stupidity on these forums in presuming he has is incredible.

well, you must realize that it's not just the people in these forums that think that ribeiro's writhing around was questionable.

in fact, minus the habs fans, i think the general agreement is that ribeiro deserves atleast a nomination, if not the oscar.

and the "missing practice" doesn't prove anything either way. if he was hurt, than he's just missing practice, but if he was faking it, they're making him miss practice so to present a more credible story.

but i do think that people are taking it a little bit seriously. yeah it was stupid, but who cares? nobody's loss except ribeiro's and his reputation. i'll give him the benefit of the doubt about the writhing around, but the little finger taunt and the smirking was dumb. yeah, so what if he got taunted by the b's bench... big deal, crybaby.

I don't know what you're talking about (re: hab fans). The majority of Hab fans believe Ribeiro was faking it and are all up in arms about how classless it was.

It doesn't matter a whole lot to me what people in the media's take on this is either. They're generally just as informed as posters on this forum on medical issues.

The fact of the matter is it's not out of the realm of possibilities that Ribeiro was in fact hurt. I've witnessed situations where people had an injury like a dislocated shoulder, where it's popped back into place if someone can feel their way into doing it as soon as possible, and after it's popped back in there's no pain whatsoever. You can go to your local ER and see plenty of these cases.

I wasn't there and didn't see things close up, but it looked to me like the team doctor went up under Ribeiro's jersey and moved some equipment then felt around. Ribeiro's shoulder did look like it had been dislocated; that was my first thought.

I could very well be wrong. Ribeiro might have been acting. But people are overreacting and being overly presumptuous because Ribeiro was seemingly pain-free after he got up and taunted the Bruins bench. Likely not a smart move, but means little in whether he was faking or not.

I assume most people here haven't had a dislocated shoulder, or they would know the pain that is involved and how quickly the problem can be fixed. I'm not sure exactly what happen to Ribeiro out there, but to jump to such conclusions without knowing the facts is pretty stupid.

I mean in the same game P.J. Axelsson fell like he had been shot after Ryder grazed him with his glove, and nobody brings that up nearly as much. Hmmm.....

I'd rather see the Bruins pound Ribeiro and his teammates on the scoreboard, and put the final two nails in the Habs' season tonight and Thursday night. Best way to beat a little wolf-crier like Ribeiro is on the scoreboard. Then he can howl "FORE!!!!!!!!!" for the remainder of the spring and summer while his pinched nerve/dislocated shoulder heals. Wonder if there's a healing process for acting like a brainless idiot (as Ribeiro's post-injury antics were).

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if Ribeiro doesn't even play tonight, if only to throw off the NHL hounds from fining/penalizing the Habs for having an Oscar-worthy schmuck on their team.

Thanks for not letting your emotions get the better of you!

So Bruins fans don't like Ribeiro for his alleged injury embellishing - SHOCKING! This incident has been rubber-necked to death, mercifully tonights game should get us talking about something else.

BTW if trash talking is now an infraction punishable by fines, then Marty Lapointe and Travis Green better have their cheque books close at hand.

And so should Ribeiro (have his cheque book close at hand) for his own part in all the trash-talking.

My emotions are fully in check, thanks. Had I truly said how I felt about Ribeiro's act, the obscenity filter would have gotten one hell of a workout and I'd probably be banned for awhile.

Hopefully, tonight's game will end with us talking about the Habs being one game away from going golfing for the remainder of the spring.

The best thing about Coach's Corner last night was the Ribiero writhing in agony shot followed closely by the Brazillian soccer player who got hit with the ball in the leg and grabbed for his face, as he was going to recieve the ball for a corner kick...DIVING MUST BE STOPPED, Ribeiro must be suspended for his disgusting actions

it's nothing new for Ribeiro.. he did pull stunts like this in the QMJHL before.

What's new is that it's the first time he does it on a national stage.

Yeah my inference was that Ribeiro is blameless in this tempest in a teapot.

Sure - in a Bruins fans perfect world! At any rate enjoy the game and the rest of the series.

This is a good example of a regular poster playing medical specialist.

It is? How is stating my opinion on Mike Ribeiro's antics anything resembling a medical specialist? It isn't.

Perhaps you've made a mistake in your assessment/interpretation of my post?

No need to "try decaf". I don't drink caffeinated beverages. Nice try at a personal shot, though... too bad it failed.

You are correct in one thing, though, in a Bruins' fan's perfect world, the Bruins will win the next two games handily. Do I think that's going to happen? No, I don't. I've said since before the series began that it's very likely to go 6 or 7 games.

Good luck to both teams tonight.

Personal shot? It's called levity. (although I'm happy to let a mod decide the question if you still feel slighted)

Because unless you've had experience with shoulder injuries (specifically dislocated shoulders) or have a medical background you cannot have a valid opinion on this topic. Why would you even attempt to form an opinion about something you have no basis of knowledge in?

I'm not trying to attack you here. I don't have any more ground to stand on than you do--except that I've witnessed dislocated shoulders and popping them back in. But it drives me nuts how virtually everyone feels the need to form an opinion on a topic that they can't possibly know about unless they have experience or training in the field.

Levity usually includes indications of humour (ie appropriate/amusing smiley faces). Yours lacked anything of the sort except for the banging of your head against a wall and the earlier rolling eyes/head-shaker. Both of those indicate sarcasm or anger, not levity.

Fine

The head banger was frustration with the topic. Perhaps a would have been more appropriate.

The Decaf point is hereby amended to include

And the "enjoy the game/series point" (which was intended as good will btw) gets a

Hopefully you are now a (unless of course you hate bananas)

You don't know why he was laughing afterwards, you don't know if it really hurt since you weren't in his body at that time. Hey, I'll find it funny the day you get in an accident, don't go to the hospital because you're afraid you'll get called names because you don't look really hurt and could be called, let's say, a wuss, and die from an injury you got in that accident. I don't think people would call you a "gutless puke" if you think you're hurt and go for a checkup, so why do you do this to an athlete that thought he was really hurt - in that case Ribeiro?

Why don't you get into people's shoes before insulting their acting? Oh, because you're just so fast thinking you're better than them.
PLEASE, if Tucker pulled that crap vrs Montreal every one of you Hab fans would be crying bloody murder in the streets.

My opinion is in regard to his ANTICS just after his best William Shatner overacting stint.

His writhing around on the ice like he had just fallen off a bicycle but his legs were still pumping -- sorry, but if I lost feeling in my upper body (neck, arm) as he claimed he did, I sure as hell wouldn't be gyrating my legs like he was on the off chance that it might (further) injure my spine/spinal cord.

That, coupled with the challenging of the Bruins bench and the smirking/laughing about it while on the bench afterward is what ticked me off. If he was hurt, then fine, ACT LIKE IT instead of putting on a show and embarrassing himself like he did afterward.
