Someone can answer this better than me, but anecdotally a girl I used to date travelled through Qujjuaq and informed me that it's more or less English that is more commonly spoken (other than the local languages), I'd imagine it might be the same thing.

They speak a different dialect of Inuktitut from myself (I'm actually in Nunavut) which is their native tongue but there is a lot of English speaking people.
You'll still find uni-linguals but they are primarily the elders.
You won't find too many uni-lingual French speaking people, if any. You can still find French speaking people though that have moved up from southern Quebec.

Has anyone noticed how the kids are squinting or wearing sunglasses?
they must be keeping them in underground child labor tunnels letting them out for photo-ops. How can Desharnais miss this?

Yeah, I was living in Chile when the Bruins won the cup, and I was actually grateful for having no way to watch the final.

It's not to discount Plekanec's ability or vision, but I just think DD has better vision. I understand if others feel Plekanec has more, but I just disagree with the notion I guess.
DD certainly has some special offensive ability. Whether it is vision in the
play-making sense, or a more general ability to understand the game with the
puck on his stick, I couldn't guess. But I've never seen this extra "wizard"
aspect to Plenc. Plenc is the meat + potatos, DD is the spicy sauce.
I know everyone hates the previous coaching staff. But they may have
found the best total value for DD and Plenc. DD may be far better on the first
line, and only a bit player in other situations. Plenc may bring equal, or less
offensive on the first line, but he can help DD a lot by doing the "heavy lifting"
in his own end.
And I'm not saying DD is better. I'm saying he looses more when not on the
first line.
For anyone who had the patience to read this Thx. I do think DD has the
best vision amoung our forwards. On D Markov is another story.

Kangirsuk is about 140 miles from Kuujjuaq, where another former Canadien, Joe Juneau currently resides.

Very proud of you David Desharnais ,your giving a dream to kids who got big odds stacked against them,in a place that is very different than downtown Montreal and a long ways away .

You can't drive to Kangirsuk with a population of around 500,only fly in.Ticket Kangirsuk to Montreal return is about $2500-3000 dollars,so these kids for them it has to be a thrill of a lifetime in every sense of the word.This would be something the whole community will always remember.

Good job Dave.

+1 buddy. I'm with you 100%. DD has lots of talent that, when used properly, make him able to play at the top level in the NHL. Otherwise, he would play merely "good" placed in other circumstances.

I just can imagine what sort of potential he could unleash with wingers like Semin and Cole by his sides. Semin would probably be very happy; for what I've read, it's pretty fun playing alongside DD.

He makes his winger shines when they give him the space to work.

But DD probably has the best vision on our whole team, none of our players have his hockey IQ...

WAYNEEEEEEE!!!!
True, if he didn't have that high hockey IQ, he couldn't play professional hockey because of his size. That's his advantage on other.

almost 3 million Canadian expats living abroad, of which ~350,000 are in China (including HK). you'd think some of them would know of this board and post on it.

hint: the "I Heart BJ" in my location doesn't mean "I Heart Blowjobs" although i do but that's not the point...
