Alright, enough with the FA talk. It's kind of boring with the same names being regurgitated day in day out in multiple threads. How about we dedicate the off-season until draft time to finding a name for ourselves, the fans of the Montreal Canadiens.
I have seen some references over the season to Habs Nation or Canadiens Nation, but those names are too much of a rip off of the original nation, Red Sox Nation. We already have a plagiarized Leaf Nation and Sens Nation right in the NE division. Some factions of Sens fans are known as Sens Army, which is pretty good and original but still not widely accepted.
I propose that we find something that could be accepted in both French and English (again the emphasis is on could be but not necessarily an absolute must). However, something original and catchy is required.
Let me start it off with a couple of suggestions...
Habistan - We might end up as the next country on Bush's Axis Of Evil, but it might be worth it.
MHL - Montreal Hockey Legion - We could even come up with the logo which would be just like the NHL logo but going in the other diagonal direction.
