It has everything to do with the name.
The media has bashed Latendresse. A lot. The media was calling for Begin's head after the double penalties. No-one goes for Boullion because he is a solid third string D-man and there's nothing wrong with this play (though we won't keep him at the end of the season).
What you've done, is taken the hype he got from the start of his career and passed it off as to what the French Canadian media has been saying the entire time.
The truth to French Canadian media is they beat you when you are down and they cheer you when you are up, acting like they never beat you down while still holding the club behind their back. It's a lot like sports media everywhere else, only it has a french canadian bias that means if a french canadian player is down, you should hate him for insulting the pride of the Habs, and when he is up, he is a hero to the community.
That's it. Now go honour what you said during the Isles game.
