So a bunch of French-Canadien reporters were angry about Briere shunning them. We should be happy. Why is he a traitor? It´s not like he´s indentured to play for Montreal. Looks like they were just a tad upset about being shown up......by a midget!

Well you see, any hockey player born in Quebec should have the ultimate goal of playing for the Montreal Canadians. Clearly Briere has shunned this in favour of money and thus justly should be villified. I mean, if he doesn't want to play in Montreal, it's clearly because he's a turncoat francophone pining to become an anglophone.

Hell, I bet the next step is Briere burning the Quebec provincial flag and putting out the flames with urine [/sarcasm]

I could have sworn I'd read an interview with Briere saying that he grew up a Nordiques fan and never really cared for the Canadiens.

I wonder if they're gonna make him testify in front of their parliament about this? What is the penalty for treason or being a traitor in Canada?

National pride? They arent a nation and if they had any pride, they wouldnt tolerate childish nonsense like that.

Its a truly pathetic piece of "journalism" and a solid case of sour grapes.

This sounds like when Gretsky was traded from Edmonton and the city sought legal action against the managers. Sort of similar......

But how great would that be....Montreal sues Briere for not signing with them and then Canada and America go to war over it (see South Park Movie). ¨¨America, Canada has bombed the Briere´s......¨¨

I think we're giving him a larger total, but per year Montreal offered more. Either way, **** Montreal.
