There might be enough Hab fans in the Buffalo area to fill a third of the stands four times a year, but Quebec is 80% french speaking and pretty much everyone here is a Canadiens fan.

My point still stands. If the Canadiens had more anglophone fans than francophone fans, the main broadcaster of the Canadiens would be an english TV station, because that would be the market for the Montreal Canadiens. Money talks...
A large number of francophone hockey fans outside of Montreal and the GMA despise the Canadiens. They are ex-Nords fans who either bitterly cheer against the Habs or cheer for the Bruins instead.
