We were treated to a lot of interviews and a lot of transparency yesterday at the Montreal Canadiens' annual golf tournament.

Of the many players and members of management who spoke, captain Nick Suzuki revealed something rather major that went unmentioned last year.
Number 14 was playing injured at the end of the season. Let's just say it doesn't help the team's former medical staff look good.
"It turns out that Suzuki was also injured last year This really isn't news that makes the (former) medical department/management look good.

The season was over, rest him, let the man rest and get a top 4 pick.

It's really mind-boggling how this could happen for 2 consecutive seasons."

The Habs had been out of the game for a long time, and the medical team still gave the captain the green light to play. Let's just say it doesn't fit Kent Hughes' philosophy. It's hardly surprising that there's been some staff turnover at this level this summer.
By his own admission, Suzuki says he wasn't 100% and wanted to remain available to be there for his teammates. In the playoffs, I would have understood. In a context like last year, it's unacceptable.
Let's face it, Suzuki is a warrior. He hasn't missed a game since the start of his professional career.
