Wasn't aware of the politics, sorry.
But hey, maybe that's just me.
You weren't aware of it because there was no need to have any since the french and the english DID co-exist. This year, we never had so few local players in the team. And not only that but you add an unilingual coach on top of it. With a lot of management being anglophones as well. Even when Bowman and Co were there, at least you had that representation on the ice. Now, there's no a whole lot of it.
HENCE the sudden awareness that politics plays a role.
