I think all of this media nonsense started to go overboard the minute that the NHL left Quebec City.
We need the Nordiques back.
When Quebec City came in the NHL, the Nordiques were promoted as Quebec's team that played against L'équipe des Anglais (obviously ignorant of Habs history) and had a Hire French policy. They were more representative of Quebec than the Canadiens dixit the PM of the time René Lévesque and the Nordiques added the Fleur the Lys in place of the red jersey shoulders of their early WHA days. They toned down those organizational behaviors sometime in the early 80s following incidents at the Colisée, but it remained in the background.
Problem is all these journalists and commentators that followed the Nordiques now cover the Canadiens. Go and check which ones... You don't teach an old dog new tricks...
