|Rivet is the longest serving member of the Canadiens organization. He is a strong presence
in his own end, but has limited offensive abilities. Despite his size, he is not the most
dominating presence physically, but he’ll drop the gloves and will go to battle for his
teammates. The pressure is on him to live up to a 4 year, $12 M contract signed in the off
season of 2003.
