That's a bunch of malarkey. If it was true than Dumont would be on the team right now, and Brisebois would never have been booed.

If a French Canadian player makes it to the team yeah he'll get more attention than any other player of the same value. Big deal. That happens everywhere when a local boy is involved.

DD is getting unequivocal (as you call it) support because he's a damn fine hockey player and he had to fight tooth & nail to get here. Being a Franco has very little to do with it. Gallagher gets the same support as DD and for the same reasons.
