I believe that there's always a car service between Ottawa and Bingo. Some call it a limo. I presume it's so the player doesn't have to drive himself (6 hours?), and can be comfortable on the trip. Quite often players are called up on gameday, so the easier the trip is on them the better.
I'm more encouraged by the Maclean's words, than I am with the 'he's a bust', 'he'll give up' attitude on here. There was some guy in my row chirping on him everytime he was on the ice Saturday, and I actually thought he had some good shifts in the first.
He needs to go down get familiar with playing with a level of confidence that he does in the A, and then bring that back up. It sounds like they have spoken to him, and I'm sure he knows what he needs to do. This club is a long way from giving up on him.
