The NHL is a league where the overwhelming majority of its history was dominated by white Canadians. Criticisms on all three players go far beyond racism or xenophobia but to deny that this sport, and especially this market, fears change and anyone who is different is ignoring what is in front of us.

You see it every day here, certain posters always blaming the Europeans for this team not being tough enough, Subban's "corporate" speaking, the impossibility to discuss Desharnais without mentioning where he's from and what language he speaks...
