As a former player for the Expos all I know is they got their favorites. Steve Freeman and company are getting up there in age. Favoritism to those players can only last so long. We made the playoffs back in 99 and because they sat us energetic college players on the bench and kept playing the old favorites, a lot of us left the team right before playoffs to sort of make a statement. It happens every year that way. They have top notch facilities for PDL though that's for sure. If only the game strategy and line-ups were similiar. That's all I have to say about that.
