I don't want any more french role players
We don't need anymore french role players. Not because I don't want them and not because I want great french players instead. It's because the fans and the media can't understand that they are ROLE players. These guys end up front page material and getting interviewed every single day.
Look at the whole Bégin mess. It's not like not playing him is a big deal but the media made it a huge deal. Then you had the massive whine fest when he was traded that lasted a whole 3 days and then nobody cared anymore. If Kostopoulos would have ended up playing every 3 games nobody would have cared.
Look at the amount of attention Lapierre and Latendresse get. These guys are nothing special and are replaceable. Same thing with Bouillon and Brisebois taking 5x the attention that Hamrlik or Gorges would get despite them being clearly superior players.
The irony here is that I think it would be better for the team to have 0 francophone players just so that everyone can be on the same level.
no more headaches today.
