f**k Detroit.

Yup stuck in between Detroit and Columbus so I get almost all of both teams games

Get to see my Habs 2x a year on FSN + 1-2 games on Versus. Sucks not being in Montreal anymore for that reason.
Dallas Stars start the season with back to back road victories!!! It wasn't a pretty win, but the Stars find a way to pull out 2 points in New York 5-4 SO.

Jamie Benn scored, Brendan Morrow had 2 goals, Stephan Robidas scored a goal, and Ribs deked out DiPietro in the SO.

Lehtonen was great again making 43 saves

So I have 4 days to get my blood pressure back down before we welcome the Detroit Red Wings!! Welcome Back Modano!

Mike Ribeiro arrested for public intoxication after ladies skirmish



What does it say about our modern sports culture that upon hearing Dallas Stars center Mike Ribeiro(notes) was arrested for public intoxication, our first reaction was palpable relief that this wasn't another pro athlete/rocket scientist that was pinched for driving while intoxicated?

On 10/10/10 at 23:26 hours, Mike Ribeiro (Dallas Stars hockey player) and three associates were arrested at Ra Sushi Bar Restaurant (7501 Lone Star Drive). Three of the individuals were arrested for Public Intoxication and the other individual was arrested for Public Intoxication and Assault. All 4 individuals were transported to the Plano City Jail and were bonded out at 04:44 hours...

Some additional reporting from Dallas Stars Blog. According to sources we don't actually have, police became suspicious of Ribeiro's mental state when they administered a rarely used "shootout" sobriety test and witnessed him lackadaisically shoot from the blue line ...

McDonald explained that Ribeiro was dining at Rasushi, located in the 7500 block of Lone Star Drive, with 39-year-old Darcy Lewis and 39-year-old Tammy Williams, who is Ribeiro's wife. The two women got into an altercation with other patrons at the restaurant and an off-duty officer who was working there intervened.

Ribeiro's party, which also included 36-year-old Wane Lewis, was escorted outside. All four were taken into custody for public intoxication. Wane Lewis was also charged with assault after, police said, he lunged at an officer during the arrest.


At least this incident occurred late in the evening at a bar; unlike, say, at the ticket counter of an airport, which is just another reason why hockey's better than basketball.
We'll update with a statement from the Stars should they issue one, as we imagine they're quite upset that this wasn't done in conjunction with Ott-tober Fest at Hooters.
(UPDATE: Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk says: "We are aware of the incident with Mike Ribeiro that took place on Sunday evening. The Dallas Stars take these matters very seriously and we have spoken with Mike about the situation this morning. We will be handling the matter internally.")
We'll also keep an eye out if there's anything from the NHL as far as supplemental discipline, as the CBA gives the League the power to punish someone for sneezing in the wrong direction while working for an NHL team (although it sounds like Ribeiro was in a "wrong place/wrong intoxicated angry women" situation).
Meanwhile, we're left with this lingering question: How much was that sake bill, exactly?
^^^

Yea saw that earlier, not a huge deal though, it's nothing like what Kane did last season. The Stars have 4 days before their next game, and they just got back from a two game road trip in New York. Who hasn't had a few too many and acted like an idiot?
wow ribeiro's wife is 39??????? this lady must be the best f**k or is super hot at the age of 39

Yeah that is what I was thinking, we may need a pic to help us figure this out.

In other news

The Penguins just beat the Devils 3-1 for their first win of the season, as the Devils fall to 0-2-1, and the Islanders beat the Rangers 6-4 after being down 3-4 at the 7:14 mark of the 3rd period.

It sounds pretty innocent. Big stretch off for the Stars, he went to Sushi bar and downed some Saki-bombs. The two women then proceeded to get in a cat fight with other patrons because they couldn't handle alcohol, other guy "lunged" at someone.

So what did Ribiero do wrong? Had some drinks with some people that can't handle their alcohol?

The big news is Ribiero's wife is apparently 39 years old, lol. I really want to see a picture of her, I bet she is totally banging for a woman that age.
^^ Yea, Ribs will be fine, still looking for a pic of his wife though

Getting ready to enjoy some evening hockey, Red Wings vs. Avalanche, man it is surreal seeing Modano in a Red Wings jersey, it just seems so wrong

HABS!
Stars are 4-0 .

Our top 2 forwards lines are great as expected. Neal seems to have put on some more muscle. And Lehtonen looks like the real deal, its impressive how well he moves for such a big guy.

But we are getting outshot like crazy, that kind of worries me. I think part of it is we don't shoot the puck that much as a team, we rely pretty heavily on Richards/Ribiero carrying the puck and setting up a play rather then just firing the puck.
