Gionta not on Road Trip (will re-join team in Calgary)

Reported by M A Godin on Twitter.

Apparently due to family issue.

However he will be in the lineup vs Calgary, according to Lavoie.

No worries.

I had a quip prepared, something like "He used up his effort and talent last game" but family issues are no fun to make light of.

Take all the time you need Brian, healing is a delicate process.

Even if i don't like the player, it's not something you wanna hear.

It still absurd to me how anyone would dislike Gionta. Even if he's not the same player anymore he still gives his 100% every game.

Brian Gionta est entré dans l’avion… Mais il en est descendu quelques minutes après, avant le décollage (bien sûr). L’un de ses fils serait être malade, selon une source(problème respiratoire). #Hôpital

As much as I dislike him as a player, I hope his kid is OK.

He's a very serviceable top-6 player - not terrible at all.

He's a terrible top 6 player but is pretty much a lock for 20 to 30 goals a year.

Same here. Anytime one my girls (5 and 2) get something as small as a cold I wish I could have it instead of them. Hope it's nothing serious.

I don't see how people can dislike Gionta. He's not the same 48 goal scorer he was in New Jersey, nor is he the same consistent offensive threat, but he's one of the hardest working players on the team, and despite the fact that he's quite small, he's not afraid of contact and the dirty areas of the ice. He's the captain, he's respected, and he's a great leader. Plus, he's still capable of chipping in 20 goals.

Yeah, I don't agree the comments saying he's a terrible top 6 player. He might have had a tough year last year with injuries, but he still competes night in and out.

Hope his son is alright. As a father, you never want to receive news that any of your children had to go to the hospital, for any reason.

Hang in there, lil' guy.

How can people dislike an honest, hard working guy like Gionta?

How the hell can you dislike a player that is giving his best every shifts? Yeah, he's frustrating to watch sometime but it's not because of his level of effort or intensity. He's limited talent wise but he always gives us what we expect from him which is around 25g/82games, leadership and defensive awareness.

Hi, sorry to be offtopic and sounding heartless, but people, especially children, needs to get sick to have their body getting used to fighting sickness. A kid never getting sick will have a very weak body.

So it's not like it's a bad thing

However, breathing problem is a different thing.

Your post isn't heartless at all, their bodies do need to learn to fight. It's just a reflex, you never want to see your children suffer, even for a minor illness.
