That makes no sense. LL has no idea what her level of English is so he speaks French. She's just letting him know that he can switch over to English if that's easier. If he then continues in French then she would probably switch back to French. She's just being considerate.

The funniest part was that they had like 4 different advertisement with the same exact clip but a different logo at the end.

For the anglos out there: we don't understand what 'Wayne' is saying either!

any others?
From the old days (kind of in order of fluency):
Larry Robinson
Bobby Smith
Bob Gainey
Mike McPhee

I don't count anglo-Quebecers, it would be almost impossible for them not to speak at least some French.

How about a French-named GM who may or may not speak francais?

For example, Ray Shero's full name is Rejean Shero.

Wouldn't be surprised if pretty much all Swiss NHLers spoke French. Every Swiss person I've met has spoke at least German, French and English regardless of which part of switZerland they come from.

Woah Duncan Keith surprised me there. Didn't know. And those who are naming Quebec/French Ontario natives... come on.

Did I miss the part in the OP's post where he specified non-Quebec natives? He said "Non-french named players". Nothing about where they come from.
