Agreed with all posts about the training camp schedule being taxing. I like Carbo's approach. The top guys have yet to play, outside of Tanguay, who he hasn't coached (and may want to get a good look at).

Also, I do think the Hockeyville contests are nice PR and great for the hosting community. However it made me cringe more than once last night to watch players catch a grove in the ice and fall. Also in many of these small town rinks the boards are nowhere near as absorbant as pro boards. And although I enjoyed the game and the intimate atmosphere on TV, I'm happy the Habs are out of hockeyville without any more groin injuries or cracked ribs.
