What language he speaks has no relevance to anything. I'd love to hear why it's so important that they speak French?
Yeah you are not getting this. The issue is older and deeper than this season's win-loss record. The issue touches the culture and society of Quebec. I'm pretty sure not all the protesters agree with you that "winning the Stanley Cup" is all that matters, as not all protesters are even fans.
