He's stating the obvious, but Habs fans feel entitled to a Cup every year.

Obviously, they forget what it is to be in their early twenties.

I don't know many kids at that age who can withstand any pressure at an ordinary job.

Imagine what it is to be in the shoes of Carey Price.

He is getting paid a lot of money and he isn't leading them to the promised land. Dallas missed the playoffs last year, they will likely miss them again this year. He is 30 years old and probably isn't going to get much better than the 60 points per year he has averaged over his career.

Of course, Ribeiro isn't the only one in that situation. Maybe NHL GM's will recognize the fact that many of these players are making way too much money and only one team per year can win the Cup no matter what you pay in salaries.

This is coming from a goal scorer and playmaker in the league who would know goalies and their weaknesses! I have always said it and always will, trade Price and he will become the next Luongo, Ward, Fleury, Lundqvist or Miller!

EPIC FAIL dude...this is what you get when you click on the link.

Thank you for visiting our website. Purgatory Night Club is closed down

I've been to Dallas and its a close race between them and Denver as the most boring city in the US.

Same.

I came in here ready to rip on Ribeiro for (once again) chirping to the media about a team he parted ways with three years ago, but he's bang on.

Good for Ribiero. He speaks from experience. He has matured. Good for him.

But he speaks for his own experience and his alone. Other players may follow the same path and it works for them. But not all. Pouliot is blossoming in Montreal, not the other way around.

Anyways, Price will be alright, as long as he gets his head on straight. The biggest complaint fans, coach, GMs and scouts have with young players has always been and will always be, consistency. We've seen what Price can do. He needs to do it game in and game out. Halak is a couple years older and he is finally doing it with an occasional game that isn't quite as good. It'll happen.

Some interesting quotes from Mr. Ribeiro:

''Guys always do better when they leave Montreal, look at Latendresse he has 20 goals''

''Getting traded was the best thing for me, I love Dallas and can focus on my game and life, I hope to be in Dallas for the rest of my career''

''I hope you guys leave Price alone, he is going to be one of the best goalies in the league when he is 28''

''Montreal media and fans expect too much from the younger players and are not patient with them''
Doesn't the example of Pouliot just negate the whole Latendresse argument? Some players play better with pressure.

Let's wait and see what happens when Pouliot hits a slump. He's not going to keep up a 50-goal pace forever.

Again you could say the same about Latendresse. The guy has slowed as of late. But when you talk about pure hockey ability, I would take Pouliot 10 times out of 10. As long as he stays away from the Star Academie chicks, he should be golden.

Nice quotes from Ribeiro, he seems to have matured quite a bit since he's been away from the Habs.

...I think his point is it seems as if players leaving Montreal do better more so than any other player leaving any other city. If what you say was true, it would happen just as much with young players in other cities, and I think Ribeiro think it's specifically a Montreal thing.

Let's be honest, you guys hold your call-ups to high standards. After a period or two of play, it's not rare to see "he isn't ready, send him down"...in Boston, it seems, we're a little more patient...(when you haven't won a championship in 38 years, it is required )

And Markov going down as if he was shot anytime he gets hit isn't embarrassing?

He did it last week and he again went down yesterday in the overtime, but nobody ever says anything, yet every time we talk about Ribeiro, everybody brings it up!

Well it couldn't have come from a better source...I'm sure if you talk to Lats, Leclair, Robidas and others and they will tell you the same.

That's why I cringe when I see here and hear that players like Price and Patches should be traded.

Still think he's a punk.

Don't see what all the "oh he's matured" talk is about. All I see are subtle jabs.

And what's next, we're going to ask Dagenais about his opinion?

A guy in my WoW guild is an officer in that place where the shooting happened, the guy can't ever get a break, work is always calling him in, he's always having to go to court due to someone he arrested, etc, guy can't buy a break. I don't know if that shooting happened near Dallas because I know nothing of US geography, but it sure seems like a busy town with a lot of crime. Typically towns like this have distractions no?

Leave Kovalev out of this. He started like crap and has since been awesome. I love watching this guy. I hope he stays around in Ottawa as long as he can, he's fantastic.

He's doing nothing that he hasn't done with us over the years, but all of a sudden he's not a useless floater anymore on Ottawa, huh? Funny how that works.
