Reading the article (I have) provides little value and wouldn't change most people's opinion of it. It's a muckracker with nothing to write about who finds yet another angle to prod at Quebecers' over-sensitivity to issues of the "Quebecness" of the Habs, and brings up something completely irrelevant to try to create a story even though he has no point. Stop me if this sounds familiar.
Either you agree with the sentiment that the Habs should bend over backwards for local content and you agree with him, or you believe that they're just being excessively chauvinistic about this and you disagree. Simple. Reading the article not required. It's not like it provides much in the way of useful information, balanced analysis, or anthing that's not just stirring up the pot. You can stop with the headline, really.
It's irrelevant and meaningless, but no sports columnist have ever gotten fired for propping up their audience's sense of self-importance.
