Of note: if JF Jacques starts the season with eight pointless games, he becomes the record holder for longest forward career with one point. One point in his first five games or worse and he achieves the record for longest forward career with two points.
What’s this? Why it’s a story from Dan Barnes about how Jacques has been pencilled in on the first line. I lived in Ontario for much of Quinn’s reign and there was a sort of constant story about how the Leafs needed a first line winger to play with Sundin. I think, at this point, it’s fair to start wondering whether Quinn just likes to have a guy on the first line who probably doesn’t belong there. The outlook for this season continues to be murky.
