Was that a Rejean Tremblay question?
And you wonder why this team hasn't made it past the second round in almost 15 years... The political pundits are more concerned with what language the captain speaks than whether he plays good hockey. It would be all very nice for him to learn french but at the end of the day he is a hockey player, not a politician. Do these guys have a short a memory or what? Do they not remember that it was less than a couple of weeks ago when Koivu went down and this team completely collapsed without him.
I've got a good idea. Let's make Ribeiro captain. There. Now we'll satisfy the poltiicians and never win a cup.
