there are 3 french canadians on the jackets

you guys were double whammied. The OP misrepresented the article, and the article, in typical french-canadian hockey media style, misrepresented the interview. I wouldnt be worrying about the team moving based on this article.
Thanks, danishh.

Personally, I hold no ill will toward the Canadian passion for hockey nor French Canadians nor the media, but that doesn't mean that there aren't passionate French Canadian hockey media types who hold ill will toward the newer NHL markets. My guess is it's not personal/anything to do with the market itself as it has to do with "you've got what we want and we don't." I get that. Still, we'll keep our team, thank you.
