I think Montrealers also want a team that represents them a bit. Growing up in Montreal, for me it was a pretty tough town and the Habs are full of wussies.
It's hard to take when people make fun of my team because they are wussies, what am I supposed to say? I agree!
I think we are also very touchy about this issue and any player who plays with physicality, doesn't let himself get pushed around or has any amount of size becomes an immediate favorite.
I think the fans have been extremely patient with the young players. Look how patient they were with Koivu. The patience with Koivu was starting to run out until the whole cancer thing, now he has a second life in Montreal.
I think Zednik is the next guy to start hearing it from the fans. He is just not hustling, and he has no hockey sense to begin with, so he better at least hustle.
