Yep, 1/3 of the team isn't even there. You'd think they would push back the tournament a week or something.
Sept joueurs européens manquaient donc à l'appel, dont les Tchèques Roman Hamrlik, Jaroslav Halak et Tomas Plekanec, de même que Sergei Kostitsyn, Andrei Kostitsyn et Saku Koivu. Quant à lui, Georges Laraque demeurera à Edmonton pour des engagements professionnels jusqu'au 12 septembre.
There are a couple guys that I've heard are scratch or thereabouts. From what I remember Dandenault is pretty good as well as Kovalev and Carbonneau (previously mentioned). There'll be a golf tournament in the coming weeks at some point. We'll see how guys do then.
