An article about the remainder of the camp
Translated with Google free translator. I changed a couple of words to make it understandable. Not perfect but clear enough. Enjoy!
Canadiens' training camp, St-Jovite - September 25th, 2003
Creating bonds and making some choices
If the mountain does not come to the man, the man will go to the mountain. It is precisely what the Canadiens immediately did after having suffered a third consecutive loss in pre-season games. But it is not to hide that the team went to St-Jovite, at the bottom of the "Mont-Tremblant".
Because, it is not necessary to press the panic button. It should be remembered that we're still in September. One year ago, people believed that the cup was near when the "Glorious ones" cumulated a record of 7-2-0 in preparatory games. Everyone, the experts included, quickly cooled off when winter time arrived. So, three losses, and so what...
Obviously, that does not change anything regarding the Habs' popularity. To convince yourself, you could look at the young people leaving their school running to take seat in the stands of the arena and understand that, wins or loses, the love remains the same. As soon as he put a foot in the place, we knew he had arrived... "Théo, Théo, Théo..." at once cheered the students who enjoyed a lunch hour far from ordinary.
A significant sequence
the next 7 days will be determining for the young players who still hope to impress management: three days of practice, followed by four games in five evenings. This is why, Bob Gainey and Claude Julien will not return anybody to Hamilton before next Wednesday.
All these youngsters are aware that each one of their moves is watched and analyzed. Some got good points with the organization during the first phase of the camp, but, in spite of what management says, the places are rare. This is why the effort must be sustained. One will not survive for long while counting only on his talent in Gainey's school.
Until Friday, in addition to the regular practices, the players of the Tricolour will take part in activities aiming at weaving and reinforcing the bonds between them. It can take the form of plays, such as treasure hunting like the previous year in Vail. It was already expected that the evening of Wednesday would finish with a barbecue.
By leaving the Laurentides, the Canadiens will have to play 4 games in 5 evenings. Friday, about 20 players, with a minimum of 10 veterans required by the national League in the pre-season games, will fly away for Manchester, in New Hampshire, to face the Boston Bruins. The others will return to Montreal to prepare for the Buffalo Sabres, on Saturday.
After the games of Monday, in Toronto, and of Tuesday, in Minnesota, we will know which players will be invited not to unpack their bags when they'll give a one-way ticket for Hamilton to some of them.
Damn Munch, slow day at work?? Your on fire posting these translated articles :bow:
