I feel bad for the people of Buffalo. The article kind of bashed the city.

I can say that for the first time since Edmonton, I find myself in a true hockey city (hockey universe ?)

Shot at Buffalo, Florida and Columbus, or just saying whatever one does when they come to a new team ?

A little off topic.

What does the "bien" mean here ? Or is it, in this case one of those words that helps make sense in French, but disappears in English ?

Is it.. respectable ? I honestly never knew "bien" had so many other meanings...

It's not a way that 'bien'is used very often, but it would be some/several here.

The translated quote sounds bad...he's not actually taking a shot at Buffalo or any of the other teams the way the French quote reads.

I don't see it as a bash at all. He just said it wasn't truly a hockey city and that's true considering the Bills are their #1 Franchise. Nothing new or bad about this..

Anyways, there isn't too many teams that you can put up there with Mtl when comparing Hockey Markets.

Edmonton. That kind of was Spacek's point I think, Buffalo's a great hockey market, but it's not crazed like Edmonton. Montreal, on the other hand...

When Buffalo was a thriving industrial city, it was fondly known as "The Armpit of America." Sadly, those halcyon days are long gone.

Full disclosure, I have a soft spot for all Buffalo teams, rooted in the French Connection and following Marv Levy from the Als to Bills. City's got some nice early 20th century architecture.

There is no reason to bash a city that is currently rebuilding itself, and has gone through a lot. There are a few bad areas in Buffalo, and if you had actually gone to the game in Orchard Park like you said you did, you would know how nice of an area it is.

And we drew flies in the last, painful days of the Expos. It's sooo easy to say things like that when the shoe is on the other foot. However, as Montrealers that lived through the brutal Expos experience (one that I am still not completely over yet), there should be sympathy to the Coyotes situation and their fans, as opposed to the chest-pumping going on here about the habs' practice.

Just one man's opinion.

Oh, and for the record, Phoenix would draw very well for the playoffs...does anyone even remember when they last appeared in them? Just as we would have rocked the stade had we made the MLB post-season.

yes BUT, pheonix doesnt deserve a hockey team nor does it belong there, montreal deserves a baseball team tho, easily, but the fans dont.

There are a boatload of American baseball fans that would disagree with your assessment of both. See how perception can be a funny thing?

I hate when people talks about the Expos fans as if they abandonned their own team.

Il y a très peu de partisans d'une équipe sportive qui ont eut à endurer ce que les partisans des Expos ont vécus dans les 10 dernières années de l'équipe. Si tous ce qui se passe à Phoenix aujourd'hui avait été la seule problématique entourant les Expos durant des années... et bien ils seraient toujours à Montréal et biens portants à mon avis.

sorry for the french, i couldnt translate that appropriatly enough for my liking.

Pats fan? Yuck!
I can't understand why so many people in Montreal seem to cheer for Boston teams(Celtics and Pats).

You should be ashamed of yourselves!

Seriously lets see how many American baseball fans would support their baseball team if it had shifty owners who sold off the best players for cash each year, and no one would build a new stadium even tho the current one was a dump in the middle of a ghetto that was 60-90 minute travel away for most fans.

could be "correctly/well" or "a lot of" or "several" and the list goes on.
