You're saying the media is biased - I offered a reason: The Habs are not special.
We didn't win the division so much as Boston choked it up on the last game. We went 4-8 in the last stretch and got bumped in 5 to a team full of rookies. We don't deserve respect for the on-ice product, especially since we still have that image of trapping, diving smurfs led by Count Jacque-ula.
Therrien changed the atmosphere but the players have to change too, if we bring in some actual game-breaking talent and our superstar (Price) plays like a superstar - we're going to get duly deserved credit.
It has nothing to do with bias or racism or politics - the Habs have just been a crappy on-ice product for a while. Koivu+Kovalev aren't going to sell seats, neither is Gionta+Plekanec. Maybe with Subban and the two Gallys we're going to have something that resembles a regular goal threat and then we'll be in highlight reals aplenty.
The Canadian media would LOVE to have a good, marketable Canadian team but every single team seems to have huge flaws and none of 'em strike fear like the Flyers, Bruins, Pens, Kings or Blackhawks do.
