To say Bergevin didn't have a choice in keeping Desharnais because he's french is really stupid if it's true. And if it's true, we're in trouble.
Why is the reason a great organisation will hire guys like Houle, Gauthier, Martin, Gainey?
Because they were the better option, or because they were the only option who can speak french?

We are in 2013, media is running a part of the show....hockey teams needs them so bad (on their side as much as possible). It's reality.

What would you think the media will have said if Bergevin would have trade DD?
