LOL @ this thread making it to a part two. I can't imagine what's gonna happen when an important player on this team gets traded.

That happens a lot. I think this board might break the internet if a big Habs trade happens. Like, literally break it.

Imagine if we really got Hossa.

This was our best shot, I think.

Patrick Roy avait vu juste à propos de Latendresse

Lundi, trois saisons et 23 matchs plus tard, l'association professionnelle entre le Canadien de Montréal et Guillaume Latendresse s'est terminée. Doit-on s'en étonner?


Latendresse, promu hâtivement dans la Ligue nationale à l'âge de 19 ans, élevé au rang de héros national à l'aide de quelques bonnes performances durant un camp d'entraînement, n'a jamais répondu aux aspirations, parfois démesurées, de la clientèle du Centre Bell et de ses employeurs.


En octobre 2006, l'entraîneur des Remparts, Patrick Roy, fut l'un des premiers à sonner l'alerte. Roy avait soulevé l'hypothèse que Latendresse n'était pas encore prêt à évoluer chez les professionnels.


...

Every french media in Montreal except Demers and Bergeron was saying he was just a bitter fool at the time, but now would they admit he was right?

We never know. Just wait until Crosby gets close to free agency. Or Ovechkin, or any other superstar for that matter. We might really break the internet.

If Pouliot ever lives up to expectations, do you think he'll be elevated to the status of national hero once they find out he's from Ontario?

So they think Quebec is a country, I'm not surprised.

I can't believe this is part 2 of the trade, honestly, what's gonna happen if someone who isn't entirely worthless is traded?

They'll start dancing around it by saying he grew up "near the Ontario border" to make it sound like he's from Quebec, without directly lying of course.

Sad. True.

JC Lajoie and Jean Perron said it as well.

I am not surprised coming from Jean Charles... he also said that Louis Leblanc is French BUT... he comes from the West Island, how much of a French Canadian can he be?

RDS always adds "the FRANCO-ontarian" when talking about players like Giroux or Pouliot, or the "FRANCO-manitoban" when talking about Toews.

Pat Burns said something funny after the Latendresse trade. Gregoire said that the Canadiens were eliminating the Quebecers from the team, and Burns replied: "Pouliot comes from Alfred. It's closer to Montreal than Chicoutimi."

There is a good article here by Sébastien Goulet, on Corussports. They said Latendresse is the same player we drafted in 2005. He hasn't progressed since. André Ruel made that comment.

I agree with this one.

This national stuff aside. If Pouliot and pacioretty end up decent we'll have a nice combo.

Nice, Gotta love Burns.

Louis Leblanc speaks perfect english, and went to an English high school.

Therefore

He sucks.

I know, I know. Sometimes Lajoie says such idiotic things that you wonder if he's just bad at expressing his sarcasm.
