All in-line citations are from reliable sources, including those for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons—science-based articles should follow the scientific citation guidelines:

Both are now corrected. Not sure why that ref was italicized... it looked exactly the same as others. Converting to cite web resolved it though. Thanks! Resolute 01:35, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
Yup, they're resolved. I would like to apologize for not reviewing the article sooner, I just got busy, so I apologize for the delay. Anyways, thank you to Resolute for getting the stuff I left at the talk page, because I have gone off and placed the article as GA. Congrats. ;) If you feel that this review is in error, feel free to take it to a GA review. --  ThinkBlue  (Hit BLUE) 01:51, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! Appreciate the review. Resolute 16:17, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
The alternate captains in the infobox, haven't been completed. GoodDay (talk) 13:58, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
To the best of my knowledge, everyone who served as a regular alternate is listed. Resolute 16:17, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
Okie Dokie. Figuring out who served which month is sorta too picky. GoodDay (talk) 21:11, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
that, and with Jokinen and Phaneuf traded, and Conroy and Langkow injured, even tracking by month would have been impossible. Resolute 21:13, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
Almost as confusing as the Flames setup in 1990-91. GoodDay (talk) 21:27, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
