Ribeiro nearly a Blackhawk last Season?
Matthias Brunet reports Mike Ribeiro was nearly part of a major trade last winter involving the Canadiens and Chicago Blackhawks. The deal supposedly would’ve seen Ribeiro, Jose Theodore and Pierre Dagenais shipped to Chicago in exchange for Nikolai Khabibulin and Adrian Aucoin, but was nullified when Theodore broke his ankle. I think that this would have been a great trade but then again if that had happened Huet probably would never have gotten the chance to become the star he is at the moment so I guess it all worked out, especially since Khabibulin was just as bad as Theo last season it would of been a struggling star goalie for another struggling star goalie, maybe they were hoping the change of scenery would change that. Who knows but even though Aucoin had a sub-par year last season i think he would have been a great addition to give us more blueline depth.Here’s the link:
