It's official. Seriously, for realz this time

Brian Gionta is the 28th captain in the history of the Montreal Canadiens. No really, this time the news comes from the Habs themselves, so it must be true. Vodkov and Gill will be his assistants.

As we've said all along, this is the right choice., so we have no further comment. Countdown to certain media members asking about his French lessons in 3,2,1...

UPDATE: here's an overly-produced Canadiens video  about Gio carrying the flambeau:

GO BOSTON COLLEGE....I mean Go Habs! Well done Gio! If you are as effective as the last 2 5'7" captains (H.Richard and Y.Cournoyer)you'll do just fine!

Molson and legal prostitutes for everyone! Mazel tov.

I'm somewhat surprised the team didn't fuck up the decision and bring Breezer out of retirement to give him the C.

WOW! Prostitution legalized and Gionta made captain? This is a GREAT day for Canada!

Go Gio! I can hardly wait to hear the fights in the National Assembly.

SO HAPPY. Even though this was the worst kept "secret" in Mtl...

Big personal bummer - Won't even get to be at the first game where he wears the C (tomorrow night).

Poo ass.

@Steve Said

Maybe the Capitan or John Baird will support my new business,Its called Steve's hire by the inch. Now there are not a lot of them so every one will be premium priced.

How about a photo shop called Ho Thursday with the Captain. My favorite ho has to be Julia Roberts, that is only because in Dusk to Dawn Selma was only a stripper,but if she comes to Canada she can be a legal ho, who hoo!

Gionta, nice Quebecois name.

He must feel high as a kite what with all the support under him from the pure laine media raising and praising him on high!!

"Le Quebec aux Quebecois"!!

Valery, valera, valery, vale ra ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ad nausium.

La vie en rose...

Merci a tous, bonne apres midi.

Adieu mon vieux, a la prochaine, goodbye until we meet again. (Thanks to JOhnny Wayne and Frank Shuster on that one. How old can I possibly be...!).

RDS cannot be more fucking whacked out with their stick their small diques out mentality. Gio is named Le Crise de Capitaine and they go to the pure wool closet to yarn another fucking moldy blue story. Even more whacked than their previous darned episodes, they pull out some Maurice 'The Rocket' RiCHard as diques coach shit. Bonus, they get 'le baron', the original Youppi, to comment on Gionta's great day. Ils sont malades!!!

Man, and I was gonna have this tried on BR with Pauline Marois as bait.
We had all the props ready (thanks o-man and GG) and I was gonna ask 29 to borrow some #9.
