Francophones et plus

Separatist lawyer Guy Bertrand expressed his caustic sentiments toward Saku Koivu for introducing his fellow team mates in English only at their Oct. 13 home opener.

Bertrand stated:

"I have the right to be served in my language," he said. "He has been playing for 12 years (for the Canadiens). He is married to a francophone. It demonstrates contempt for our language. It is not respectful."
Less we forget, Guy, Savu Koivu is from Finland. His french-speaking wife isn't the captain. As far as contempt with your language? At least he can speak English, which is more than some Europeans in the league.

If Montreal wants a French speaking captain, then find one. Are you looking for the second coming of Maurice Richard? Jean Beliveau? Who?

Perhaps this is why the Canadiens have such a hard time signing free agents? Just a thought.

Now, for more important updates.

Tonight, Mike Modano looks to take the pole position as the top American-born scorer of all-time.

Tomorrow marks the 48th Anniversary that Jacques Plante dawned his mask.

What's going on with the Devils? Only seven points and a current four-game losing streak? Even the lowly Thrashers passed the Devils in points. Of course, when Ilya Kovalchuk is playing like he's possessed, the Thrashers should do well.

Désolé, Guy. J'ai dû l'écrire dans l'anglais

À mon opinion, il est important de garder la tradition française à Québec, surtout Montréal.

Pendant que je conviens que Bertrand est trop, ses opinions sont valides. Nous sommes fiers de notre héritage et quand il n'est pas honoré, nous nous sentons faits mal.

Ce serait agréable pour Jean Beliveau ou Maurice Richard, mais nous nous en occuperons.

Stop with the French man, is this a blog for your French class?

I agree that's the fuss over the English/French thing is kind of silly. Hockey is a Canadian thing, but its not specifically a French Canadian thing. They need to get their heads out of their ---es and realize that most of the US and Canada speaks English, and thats where most of their audience is.
