Stephen Hart era extended

Word is out, though not yet officially, that Stephen Hart will have the interim tag removed from his title, and will become the permanent head coach of the Canadian national team. Among the Vees, at least, this move has received positive reviews.

This means there's no time like the present to review some Hart era stats:

If you're scoring at home, that's a list of 42 players that includes the immortal Dominic Imhof. Most interesting to me is that the midfield trio of Bernier, Hutchinson and de Guzman have missed a total of 5 matches between them, with JDG playing all but the Gold Cup match this summer against Costa Rica. All three have been called up for the forthcoming friendlies, so while Hart claims to be doing some experimenting (as per Molinaro) he seems fairly decided in the middle of the pitch.
