Good old firefox *******!

I don't think overrated is the right word.

I think the media's requirement to HAVE all these french canadiens is abit stupid.

it almost seems like they would like a good french player over a GREAT (insert nationality here) player.

No need to go outside Québec to find this.

Fair point. Any local player, from anywhere, is probably overrated. Then they play for their local club and we find out just how average they are (in my experience see: Perreault, Yanic.) Nul n'est prophete en son pays

I think Don Cheerry should have the last word in this thread.

I put up a poll on the Poll Board about Lecavalier. Now we'll just have to wait and see.

Overrated by 110%, that's for sure.

"Marc-André Bergeron is the key guy for the Oilers in PP"
"Francis Bouillon is the best Habs this season"
"Let's give 3 millions to Bouillon this summer"
"Dagenais est le meilleur marqueur du CH"
"Let the Lighning pick any of our Habs players for Lecavalier"
...

Most of these quotes are from Michel Bergeron. God I hate that guy, he's becoming worse than Don Cherry.

Example my Merciless Tempestuous Caucasion Peaches,

if Francis Bouillon's name was :

Bjorg BjargenFagerborgenilsonberg

Would 110 % be saying :

- He's too small, he doesn't produce, he has no shot, no vision ...

And if Koivu's name was :

Jean Michel Leblanc

would 110 % be saying :

- He's 100 % Heart, his leadership is incomparable !!! screw size ! he's a proven leader and a consistent scorer ...

I think we all agree that in today's NHL, you can draft a Kenyan player, if he has heart and determination he'll win you a cup ...

now who breaks this to our friends on 730 AM ?

In fact, I don't think they're overrated... I just think we want them too much because we want french guys in a french team, that's it

Come on I know you hate the guy but He never said racist things against R.o.C players except Bertuzzi but that's another story

I must admit that 110% clearly overrated french players, but all local TV show is overrating the local boys......

I think we all overrated french players and outside they are underrated.....the player from the Q never had a real good evaluation

A player like Tanguay is very underrated I think personnally but in Q he's like God.....same thing with Vinny (compare always to Daigle), St.Louis - small, Briere - fragile, JP Dumont - lazy, Bergeron not a #1, etc........

There is an option on your radio that allow you to change the channel if you don't like what you are hearing. it works GREAT.

Edit: I'd like to point out that most of the quote in this thread have no link to support them and are obviously fake.

yeah, that reminds me the time I went camping in the USA: everyone was so nice to us except this couple a few lots from us...guess why? Our PQ license plate. Guess where their license plate came from...U guessed it: TOARINO.

It's true though that when you walk with your head between your legs, the world seems kinda...upside down!

Ribeiro is faster then Koivu.

The Dagenais-Ribeiro-Latendresse line

The Brisebois is a top 10 defensemen and the list goes on and on.

It doesnt seem relevant when it comes to europeans to you. Face it, its been more then a decade that a non goaltending Quebecer has won the Conn Smyth or lead the playoffs in scoring and since the european waves here there are less impact quebecers then ever and the captains dont do squat in the post-season. You cant win with a frenchie.

It's fun being a bigot isnt it?


For the purposes of moderation, I dont believe a single thing I wrote in that paragraph.

Players in general : Definitively overrated by some french media

French goalies coming from the Q : I think that they tend to be overrated due to the Roy/Brodeur legacy

My 2 cent

Fine. It's called paraphrasing. Now they aren't fake.

Carry on.
