He's the ultimate nerd yet doesn't have the capabilities to do some interesting digging to come up with something new. The dreaded Réjean Tremblay actually created a character in the tv series "Lance et Compte" from Cantin basically showing him as a clown that can't get laid.

I'm not making this up, this is the character.

He has his moments (his article on the Habs needing a single boss was great), but like many MSM guys, his analysis of the actual game itself is very shallow to non-existent -- because that's not what sports journalism is actually really about.

He's more about relationships, the human aspect, the tradition, and stuff like needing francophones than he is about actual hockey. And that's what sports journalism is about because it's what the audience generally prefers.

That's 100% of the sport journalists in Montreal.

Philippe Cantin looks like a woman that had a sex operation.

The guy knows very little about hockey. I don't care if he's a nerd and doesn't know how to dress, but if you don't know much about hockey, you shouldn't be talking about it.
The guy's a moron regarding that.

Like any reporter, when they share you're opinion, they're awesome as you can quote them to solidify your point. When they write or say something against your beliefs though, they suck. Welcome to HF Boards 101...

No, no, not true: I always thought Cantin was a woman who had a sex operation. He looks...different.

Of course, reporters are always right.. It's always the fans going crazy.

It just can't happen that there's bad articles or opinions out there. Nope. Impossible. Fans are just nuts..

This forum bashes every single article coming from the press. It's hard to believe that every single thing written out there is bad. It's far more likely that people here are sensitive and will lash out at any article that's critical of the team (which was all of them this season, cause our team was terrible).

Well, first off, that's not even true.
Articles by Brunet, Godin, and Arpon are usually liked, and those guys are respected.
Others like Bertrand Raymond or Tremblay aren't because 99% of their articles will be about bashing something or someone related to the Habs. Always the same thing.
But even for them, it does happen that they actually write something interesting and people will say things like ''I hate Tremblay, but he's absolutely right''.
So, it's flat out wrong that people here bash every single article.

As for Cantin, he actually can write some good articles, but just not regarding hockey. He's absolutely clueless about the sport. Completely.

Guillaume Latendresse has no sense of style. Can't believe he's banging Annie Villeneuve.

Not it's just the medias that are garbage in this province and not only sports journalists. There is some good ones, but I there is so many bad ones that's just ugly.
