In fact, what makes them "just ok" is the fact they cannot communicate their ideas clearly. They know their hockey, it's obvious. They just can't express in opinion in proper french. They try to speak "too cute" IMO and lose their ideas. Houde can be "cute" with language and other hosts but no the analysts.

Sign Chipchura for a 7 years 45M contract ! Hahaha. Seriously, I don't see the point of resigning Bonk next year. Sure, he is a good defencive player, but if we want to one day win the cup, we need to DEVELOP our rookies by giving them ice time. If we are not willing to do that, we might as well trade our 1st and 2nd round picks every year along with all the rookies stuck in the minors.

No he won't jump at you and steal the puck from your stick all the time, but he will make his way into your passing/shooting lane and get rid of most of your options. He is such a smart player.

He did get his achilles tendon cut, but I don't think it slowed him down at all.
It is very similar to Bonk. He came back from the injury a better skater it seemed.

Guy Lafleur is one of the worst hockey analyst EVER.
I never read one good article in the Journal the Montréal. He's always bashing the euro players and Kovalev. He's pathetic.

Prospects like Chips are easy to replace. An example would be aquiring Begin or signing Bonk long term. If he was packaged in a deal for a stud player I have no beef with that.

Team is in a position to package a Perez, Milroy, Chips, or a #1 pick for a Forsberg or Smyth type.

I agree with the second part of your post but not your first. Chips will be huge, just watch. Heart of a lion.

Yeah...you probably are right about Chips. We have a lack of leadership on the team so he is extra valuable because of that. But we were in a position to package extra youth for a stud player. Teams like Islanders, Nashville and Dallas gave up a lot of youth but then again they didn't give up a lot.

You wanna know my age? 24

So it's NOT a lack of maturity !!! Next question?
If you know that's an entertainment then you understand that it's make-believe, right? These two guys are just shooting stuff out of their arses for entertainment purposes and to be controversials. I would be willing to bet that half the things they say on that show, they do not really think.

Saying things like "RDS are morons! French medias are awful" just because you have two guys doing an entertainment show on RDS is not thinking too much.

I don't think it was racist. French speaking Hab fans like the home grown players who relate to them. Wouldn't you favor your brother as opposed to you friends brother? You don't hate your friends brother, you just like yours more. So I agree. Latendresse would probably not have been trown in the deal.

By the why I like Latendresse. He seems like a good kid. He's got potential. But I like Sergei Kostitsyn as much. That kid can score, works hard and isn't afraid of anyone. Some Quebecers are really biased. I don't care if the guy is a green Martian. If he can make the Habs win, I like the guy.. Besides my avatar has two Americans in it

He does stand out as a prime idiot on RDS which is quite a feat really considering the imbeciles they've got on their pay roll.

The best are :

Mathias Brunet and François Gagnon

Renaud Lavoie of RDS is not bad.. He is not great but he is way better than some other RDS guys... What I don't like about Lavoie is when he is trying to convince us that he has a scoop "The habs are seriously involve with Patrick Elias" ... Maybe He was right, but what he said never happens...

What Cherry and Doc Mailloux I think you're right, they are not thinking to much...

But what Alain "Le baron" Chantelois said, I think its what he is really thinking...

The Habs are desperately in need of scorers. I don't think Chipchura will score as many goals as Plekanec, so he's not the answer.

If probably really was Le Toton but the media decided it would be best to tweak it a bit, so that's how he ended up with Le Baron

I agree with you waffledave. Also, what we can't overlook is that we have a chance to "educate" and "form" Chipchura, something we can't do with a UFA. I don't think this part should be overlooked, especially, when you have a prestigious team like the habs.

José Théodore and Patrice Brisebois.

The truth about french players is it goes both ways. If they're good or have a lot of potential, like Latendresse this year or Théodore back in the day, they're huge stars. If they ever disappoint, they're treated far worse than english/american/european players. Hard working players like Bégin are also very popular.

Koivu is a very popular players among Québec fans, and he still is this year despite a difficult second half by him and the rest of the team. It's not because one media has talked about the fact that he doesn't speak french that every fan from Québec hates him.

And another thing: it's not because one person on RDS says he would like to see Chipchura get traded that everyone in Québec believes so and hates players who don't come from Québec.
