Out tonight

Looks like Mathieu will be out for tonight's game. GM/coach Bob Gainey says he's not ready to go, so reports the Montreal Gazette.

Oh, and for what it's worth (and I'll have something more substantive to say later), I'll say this much for now: we haven't seen the last of Mathieu. Even if the Habs lose tonight and are eliminated from the playoffs, and even though his contract expires with this season, I have no doubts that Mathieu will be returning next year. Surgery or not, 40th birthday or not, he's not done yet. He'll have to take a huge pay cut no doubt, and I have no idea if Montreal will be interested in retaining him, but he'll catch on somewhere.
