I said if it can be helped. If not, I'll watch the RDS feed. I dont mind Houde, I just have some issues with the rest of the crew.

I think one of the best candidates could be Jeremie Rainville. He is a former TVA sports reporter and he appears sporadically on RDS but he probably doesn't have nearly as many contacts as Lavoie does.
I don't know who but they could even hire someone. Remember when Yvon Pedneault was colour commentator on RDS? He was plugged. Can't say the same since he's been replaced. Fact is the Habs will help who helps them. The broadcasts are usually biased towards the Habs and in returns, they get info sooner or that other media doesn't get.

Yeah, because he's employed by TSN I think. I'm ready to bet that we'll see more of him in the upcoming season. He's bilingual after all.

He's always there when "Le 5 à 7" is on. I saw him many times but he does work for ESPN, uh?

Wouldn't be surprised if RDS could pay him way less than what ESPN pays him right now...

I doubt LeBrun ever leaves ESPN to join RDS as he's probably the most well-known hockey insider in the US.

Is he? Then again, it's not like I watch RDS religiously or anything. Most of my pre-game time is spent at work or on hf.


In the end, at least in the short run, I can see the 'lose-lose' argument. But speaking as a fan, I couldn't give two ***** about what Lavoie got, I care about what we get as Habs fans, and we lose out here.

Yes, he is. I'd say about two or three times a week. However, he is talking from TSN studios.


Also, according to his Twitter account, Martin Lemay will be making an announcement soon.

The guy is too loyal to French players, helping them develop their careers (Lecavalier this summer, Briere a few years ago, Desharnais, Darche...) at the expense of the Canadiens.
I wish him all the bad luck in the world.

I'm thinking Mathieu Darche. Makes sense. Was active in the NHLPA, so has contacts all over the NHL, is a knowledgeable dude in the business side of the game, already worked a bit for RDS recently and this job would give him the opportunity to keep his family life stable in Montreal (Something he seemed very preoccupied by.)

I lost all my trust in this guy after his famous interview with Vinny in Tampa. Rebember when the club was mismanage by the last owners? It was so pathetic, a Vinny fan who was completely convicted that his friend Vinny wanted to be a Montréal Canadiens.

Oh yes, Vinny always wanted to play in Montréal Renaud.

Go back to school, TVA sports is your place to learn again.

hard to argue with the guy; he's the only one covering it full time.
