Exactly.

First, Paul Houde made embarassing impersonations of Vincent trying to score iwth girls when he went to a (gasp) English high school. Then, his brother Pierre Houde got too excited when Tampa Bay outlaw Ryan O'Byrne laid a solid bodycheck on the big #4.

And that was it. The Houde clan has forever discouraged Vincent Lecavalier from coming to Montreal.
