It'd be fun to go and trash some poor division 3 French team! "Quin les Françââs, 17-0!" Hi, hi!

It'd be seriously bad-ass. But I keep thinking that with the high Czech/Slovak representation, and with the Russian contingent of the Habs that either Moscow or Prague'd be better destinations.

I doubt that the KHL will accept the NHL on ther turf in Moscow. And btw, should they send 2 teams in Paris, how could you not choose the "Canadiens" ? Think Paris will get excited over a Leafs / Sabres game? or a Wild / Oilers?

Not to mention that France probably has the largest group of Quebecers in all Europe. There would definetely be a Habs cheering group there.

So they'd sound more like this : Ce Brisebois est un très bon joueur de hôckè, il envois régulièrement le palet directement sur la palette de l'adversaire.
I m' not even sure non initiated french fans know the word "palette".
That said, we're not dumb enough to say Brisebois is a good player.

I get it! It's no coincidence at all.. It's called "chantage"..
Hockey is not BIG, but still have decent hockey league.

A friend of mine is playing in Division-3 and his brother is playing in League Magnus (above first division). The calibre of Magnus is quite impressive.

This would be fantastic, particularly for hockey in France. Paris used to have a good hockey team yearrrrs ago, Les Francais Volants (Flying Frenchmen-) but it kind of went badly downhill.

Bercy is relatively ugly but should be able to accomodate a NHL game. I agree with Qui Gon Dave, I don't think it will be any problem to have a capacity crowd for one game. I also went to the games in London last year and it was amazing how people seemed to come from every part of Europe just to see the NHL.

Lets hope this happen!

I'm French and I don't know anybody who would talk like that. What in the world does "atténuation formidable" mean? And "toile abandonnée"? Seriously...

The article (in french)

Les Canadiens de Montréal à Paris?
La franchise canadienne de NHL et la Fédération française sont en contact pour organiser un match à Bercy l’an prochain.
Les Canadien de Montréal vont-ils poser leurs patins à Paris ?
I think that could be awesome
If Montreal is going to go play in Europe i think they should considered also playing in Switzerland
The nhl could send the following 4 teams
Montreal
Toronto
Detroit( i know australians who have the wings as their favorite team)
Chicago

Yes but that's because most of them are X FLQ

I think France would be a great place for the habs to play a game, although I think Moscow would be the best place, especially with Kovy markov and a couple more belarussians players on the team. Too bad Detroit doesn't have as many Russians as before cause an original 6 "Home and home" in Moscow would be the best.

I don't see Moscow welcoming the NHL anytime soon.

The game of football association has really ***not*** beneficited from the cash flow towards few powerful teams. The game is really a lot less exciting than it was 10-15 years ago. Champions League is the dullest competition in the world and doesn't mean anything anymore when, year in, year out, you see the 2nd and the 4th English clubs (Chelsea and Liverpool) face each other in semi-final. Sure, talent is more concentrated as only few teams can afford the best players but we get bored watching the same games year in year out. Money is all. The game comes after.

The NHL changed for good when they forced the players to accept the salary cap. Hockey should not follow football association's path while it stays a financial jungle.

I still shiver at the thought.

The way you talk down to us is really hurtful.

It's not the place to start a language debate, but we don't americanize words more than in Québec. Where you would literally translate a word or an expression, we sometimes choose to keep the English word. Though, we pronounce it with a French accent, making it almost impossible for an Englishman to recognize it. That's another way to translate a word. To each his own way to protect the French language. Though trust me, it would be easier for someone who would only speaks English to communicate in Québec than it would be in France...
