When I hear Bertrand Raymond say that they need a Francophone (pur laine) and not an Anglophone that can speak a few words of French and I hear all of his buddies on Antichambre agree with him - then I know that they're hiring the wrong guy for the wrong reasons. Unfortunately, I can't ignore the media and the TV shows. I live in Montreal and my wife loves the Canadiens (she's a francophone) It will be interesting to see all of his buddies on TV have to criticize him but try to do it a nice way.
You do realize that Bertrand Raymond does not call the shots, right? Neither do the guys on l'AC (well...except... Michel Therrien, I suppose )
