True that Cherry gives Montreal credit on occasion.

Habs against the World!

Ps. Despite it all, the Canadiens fans number in the millions... spread far and wide.
Actually, I think most people outside of Quebec really just don't care about hockey from and politics based on the last century one way or the other. To them that is last century's news and nothing to bother talking about.
