Actually, the Montreal fanbase IS thrilled to have him, as expected. But hey, this is the Habs HFBoards. And this is where his case becomes curious : Where did he find that many bashers, here, specifically? Why are people not more excited about having such an offensive force, a local player, who cost almost nothing, with a cinderella story, on the team? Why?

I've been here for long enough. This story repeats itself again and again. Let's not pretend we don't know why.
There may be some who go out of their way to bash him because he is a francophone , just like there are just as likely to be some that go out of their way to protect him for the same reason. Problem is that these two parties feed into each other and escalate it. Some of us just want to have rational debate. Language topics don't interest me in the least. At least, not in regards to hockey.
