If they don't want to tell people Markov is out for the year, then it's their right. That doesn't mean they are hiding things.
Habs have been run like the Maffia for many years. You would have to be blind to be a have been a Habs fan and not see it. Players from other teams have much more freedom to talk to the media and so forth. Habs has acted that way since forever probably started when Serge Savard was there. For management it was always "us against the World" and what it does is that it creates an air of suspiscion. Feels like management view journalist from a place of superiority and contempt. So when thing go back, the media are quick to attack them. It's even worse with Gauthier there's no connection with management and the hockey community. If you compare the Habs and the Sens for example, first thing Eugene Melnyck did when he joined the Sens, he opened up the training room for journalists so they would have ultimate access. the Sens are much more in sych with their community.
