I never said translating. You jumped to that conclusion.

I said when a French Canadian player (or a European for that matter) speaks English or Gainey speaks French they clean up the quote. Why wouldn't they do it for a native speaker. And yes, it's a grammar mistake. It's very similar to English when someone says she's the most prettiest or he's the more strongest. That's a grammar mistake. It's either the most pretty or the prettiest. You can't combine the two.
