What the people want is someone that is bilingual. The fans tried to push Saku Koivu out of the club because he didn't spoke french and he was "just" the captain. Some people didn't care, but a lot did. Gionta's first interview as a captain started by saying "Désolé mon français pas bon." Just to show he's doing an effort because people care about this stuff.

I think you have no idea what hockey is to Montréal and the Province of Québec. Maurice Richard's suspension spark a riot that lead to a nationalistic movement which ended up being the "Révolution Tranquille". All of this because we raged against the Anglophone.

Granted that it won't have the same effect this time, but having the most public job in the province, you should be able to speak the language. But anyway, he'll be fired before he will have the time to learn.

Do you need me to explain this any further for you Captain Oblivious?
No but from the tone of your post you do a good job representing the arrogance of French culture that exists in north america. The sense of entitlement and better than thou attitude that french canadiens seems to have because youre great great ancestors are from france you believe its important to rub your culture in to everyone else's face.

Give me a break. Thank god quebec is not a state in The united states. the rest of the states would never put up with that ********.
