I wonder what happened between Steve and Jeff. I thought that when they let Gould go there would be a firm plan in place. Jeff is either playing coy waiting for the season to end to make an announcement, or something happened that had them release Steve for a non curling related matter and pick up the pieces at a later date. Seems very odd to not have a firm announcement in hand when you cut someone who has curled with you for so long....
Nicols would be interesting if Reid moved down to lead but Marc would be a waste at lead with his hitting abilitly being under utilized.
Lots of speculation abounds re: The Stoughton/Gould situation. Stoughton didn't seem to have a man in the bullpen and Gould doesn't appear to have a quick team to switch to. (42 year old leads aren't really in demand as most of Manitoba's better teams are well under 35, 'cept for McNamee, Peters (who's essentially retired) and Dutiaume (who's a great 75% shooter)
Stoughton, nearing 50 is entering desperate territory. This will be his last kick at the Olympic cat, perhaps two more years on the cash circuit and he'd certainly like to nab at least one more Manitoba championship (his 10th overall) and take a crack at his 4th Brier.
I AM CAPTAIN NOW!
