Jeff Halpern, on the other hand, speaks French very well. Especially for an American who isn't even from a French family.
And as for Toews, he speaks it but he's not "completely fluent" like some people are suggesting. He has a pretty bad accent.
Cammalleri's name was a joke, mostly related to his Happy new year message (100% in french, with a good accent, but sounded weird, as if learned phonetically
I had Halpern there,.. Him and Moore both have good university training.
