Montreal Canadiens: Jacques Martin Promises A Captain.
The Montreal Canadiens' head coach, Jacques Martin, met the press only minutes before his annual golf tournament and promised that a team captain would be in place before the start of the season.
The Canadiens have played the entire 2009-2010 season without a team captain. Nobody wore the C since the departure of Saku Koivu. The speculations on who could be the next captain are going since a year already.
Yesterday's announcement from Jacques Martin revived the rumors. Yesterdy was also a big day for defense men Andrei Markov who officially became a Canadian citizen. Markov's love for Canada and the city of Montreal was officialized during a short ceremony held in Montreal.
Is there a link between Jacques Martin's declaration and Markov's new citizenship? We should have an answer in a couple of months.
