SJ stripping the C from Marleau has yet to lead them to any more success then they had while he was the captain.
Either way, those are exceptions...plus, Marleau has a NTC and might not have been willing to leave or was perfectly willing to give up the C when they asked for it back.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
