But there's nothing wrong with that, and that's simply what Julien was saying. People of different social or political opinions work together and even live together (it happens in families too) all the time. The media wanted to make a Big Deal about it because controvesy sells.
i'll bet the fact that he has any views at all is what put him in the minority.

Mid 80's, a Soviet team comes to play an exhibition with the B's (not the red army team) and Nevin Markwart is asked "do you think games like this will help to foster mutual understanding and tolerance between our two countries?"

Markwart's answer - "huh, umm, I'm just a hockey player, I don't know about those things" (with that goofy Markwart grin on his face).
