So misguided jealousy is the reason?

Why read an article when you already know... HF is perfect for that reason.

But then let's put everything in perspective that we're not winning just as much anymore. Thanks to PRoy, we would not have won anything in 30 years.

Honestly, I don't think Habs are hated as much as Habs fans are. And just because of few guys who keeps acting that we're STILL that big franchise that keeps winning and winning.

When everything we'll be put in perspective, we're all realized that real soon, the majority of posters in here would not have witness 1 SINGLE CUP. Already, tons of people here remember vaguely the 93' one and I'm not even talking about the 86'....

Having said all of that, the other fanbases are making a big thing out of a lot of little things, like Habs fans being happy for our great season last year. How come we can't be happy? It's not like I've stated before, that we were used to it really.....

But it's true that whatever fanbase you're from, a little humility never hurt. Moreso 'cause it could come back and bite us....

Cloutier

This is an odd reaction to an article where he did nothing but compliment the habs.

Is this the way you react when(if) somebody personally compliments you?

Absolutely great advice. The next sentence doesn't fit, I've been around for a while and nothing has bit me . Detroit and NJ have some recent glory, but most people see the big picture and the Habs are the name brand for excellence.

Actually I've been around for 12 cups, and I'm not forgetting anything.

Oh man, that first "response" is hilariously stupid.

"The Habs Teams Suck , Will Never Support Any Team That Has Our
Canadian Anthem In French, Including Ottawa & Toronto , This Is Canada
And There Is Also The East And The West , Not Just Quebec, Howe
Was Better Than Richard Any Day , Now We Have Alex The Great ,
Beat That If You Can , A Proud Canuck From The Northwest.."

a.k.a. loooo-ser

didn't know Cherry had someone waiting in the wings. I think he may be trying to close the Sundin deal.

Also...I hope he's willing to give up the Quebecois that he has a problem with (Luongo and Burrows, without even thinking about the rest of the roster).

Nice article. Ive always wanted to beleive exactly what he has said.

My Knowledge of hockey is unfortunatly not quite good enough to do this but I'dd love to see someone make a chart of all the teams in the league and Identify Who within there upper management used to be a Habs at some point at any level.
