I think that a more accurate statement would be to say passionate about their Habs. Personally I find that the average Habs fan knows very little about the sport outside the actual team.

are unrealistic and think good goaltending can bring an average team to a championship, and complain when it doesn't happen.

Good observation, but the same could be said about the average fan of any sporting team.

Category 7 : The Emo fan

The emo Habsfan is caracterized mostly by their chosen lifestyle. They are unhappy whether the Habs win or lose. They are unhappy at almost everything (ok ok ok, EVERY thing) management does. They are pessimistic and all participate in fake suicide rituals after every game (win or lose, there's something bad that one of the Habs players did in the game which is worth slitting your wrists for). In 30-40 years from now, you'll see them homeless (or in a grave, y'know... suicide...) standing in front of the Bell Center with a cardboard cutout that reads "the end is nigh!!". Basically, they are pessimists,, alarmists, whiners, and always always unhappy.

Montreal Canadiens fans are... quick to overrate their players and the first to be dissapointed when the player in question doesn't become what he was supposed to be

... just want to pin their hair back, strip down to their petticoats and DANCE!

When trying to express oneself, it's frankly quite absurd,
To leaf through lengthy lexicons to find the perfect word.
A little spontaniaty keeps conversation keen,
You need to find a way to say, precisely what you mean...

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

I've lived in Atlanta all my life. My first NHL game was in 1975; Flames/Canadians. I didn't know squat about hockey but by the 10 minute mark of the 1st period, I had become keenly aware of two things.
1.I love this game
2.Montreal looked to be 10 times better than the Flames

As a result, I've been a hockey fan ever since and before I pass on, I'm going to a game in Montreal. I think if Habs fans are somehow different than your regular, run of the mill fan, it's because their team is special. At least I think so.

Ok listen for the last time:

The worst fans in the league are the ones that let their team go on bankruptcy because they don't win:

1. Phoenix Coyotes.

Thank you, have a nice day.

We could say the same for the MTL Expos fans then. Awful fans who letted their team die.

What a stupid comment.

Nice racial stereotypes.

I disagree. I have a lot of Leafs, Oilers and Bruins fans and I know just as many people who are big fans of other sports; and their knowledge tends to be much higher than what I've seen of the average Habs fan.

The average Habs fan knows only the Habs and no other team. You go to Toronto and you ask people who claim to be Leafs fans 5 players from a random team in the eastern conference and will generally be able to answer you. Habs fans usually can't do so.

The average Habs fan doesn't even know that there is a big deal going on with the Coyotes right now...but they sure do know about how much of a Bum Gomez is because Rejean Tremblay said so; and that Bob needs to be moved out because Ron Fournier says so.

And I'm talking about the fan off the street here; the bottom 60% of Habs fans who are basically in it because its a "big deal".

Hopefully you get to see a game in Montréal and it's a winning game. When the habs score, it's amazing. I won't lie. Only been to one in Montréal, but my God, it was quite loud and intense. Now, it's a few notches below, but that's how it is in Ottawa... when Montréal scores. Habs and Leafs overrun Scotiabank place.

No, I agree with him. The thing is, RDS and local newspapers are pretty much the only accessible media outlet when it comes to hockey to the average fan (in Quebec) and they do a very poor job of covering the league as a whole.

Just to compare, TSN has, among their analysts, Darren Dreger, Bob MacKenzie and Pierre McGuire. The first two are probably the most credible and knowledgeable insiders there is and they cover the league, CBA, NHLPA issues, etc. and McGuire is money with anything that has to do with prospect and up and commers. If you watch the draft on tsn, you'll get info on each player. I've watched a draft on RDS or RIS (cant remember which) and they were only doing so for Montreal picks and french players being drafted.

There is very limited news about what's going on around the league in Quebec, which makes for a poorly educated fanbase (obviously not talking about you guys here as I think most fans on HF have some degree of knowledge of the league).

That being said, that doesn't only apply to Montreal but smaller markets like Nashville, Phoenix, etc where they'll cover the team because it's there but not the whole league because it barely interests people.
