    I agree there is no obvious choice; just like the year before Gionta was made captain. This is in sharp contrast to many other teams where there are ultiple candidates to choose from... ~~~> Mathematically eliminated...

    I'm not a fan of the 4-As formula either; but I'm almost certain that the concern that no one's feelings get hurt did NOT factor into the decision. There is simply no slam-dunk-obvious candidates for the job... ~~~> Mathematically eliminated...

    QUESTION FOR THE GROUP Has anyone here ever used the streaming services at FASTHockey.com? I only became aware of this service recently. They stream a bunch of amateur games (mostly junior) from different leagues. Most of the games would not typically be covered by, or available on, major networks. For example, these area few of the games available today. I wonder what the stream quality is like...

    @scamorza. Yes, Mill Street Pub Ottawa is very close to the War Museum. The original one is on Mill Street in the Distillery District in Toronto, hence the name. I understand that Shayne Corson and Darcy Tucker also own an establishment nearby...

    Check out Mill Street Pub on Wellington Street next time you are in Ottawa. Great beer and stunning building/location. Or Chez Lucien on Murray Street in the Market area -- lots of Habs fans and memorabilia there. Both are also walking distance to Gatineau... ~~~> Mathematically eliminated...

    Potentially, depending on date. I'm spending lots of time at the fish camp this summer. Maybe some time in the Fall would work best... ~~~> Mathematically eliminated...

  • Comment on GM Bergevin says Habs are a team that still needs to mature (with video and audio) (2014-06-02 20:32:34)
    On Nov 4, 2010, David Perron received a hit to the head from Joe Thornton. He left the game briefly but didn't show any symptoms of concussion. He actually came back after 10 minutes and scored a goal. Perron still did not show any symptoms by the time Thornton appeared for his supplementary discipline hearing for which he received a two game suspension. But then the symptoms appeared and Perron didn't play another game for the Blues that season. By thtime training camp arrived the following season, Perron was still unable to do any kind of physical exertion. He only came back later during the 2011-12 season. There are many other examples... ~~~> Mathematically eliminated...

    There is lots of talk about what MT said regarding Weise's injury and what MB said during the conference today. In my view, there is no contradiction. As I recall, and to paraphrase, MT was asked whether he had any regrets in allowing Weise back on the ice after the hit if he was showing symptoms of a concussion. (This was asked after it was announced that Weise would not be playing the game after the hit.) MT's answer was "What symptoms?" The reporter then said: "Well, I assume..." It was at this point that MT said: "Your assumption is wrong..." In my view, it is entirely possible that Weise did not show any symptoms immediately after the hit when he was assessed by the medical staff in the quiet room, and that the symptoms of concussion only materialized some time after the end of the game. That is actually a common occurrence for concussions... ~~~> Mathematically eliminated...
