Quote of the Day on Twitter: “I wish they would put agents on a reality TV show and put them on a lie detector test and watch them all roast and die.”

    I just don’t get what how “nevermind French; let’s go with the best” implies that the habs hsould go non french?

    if the best candidate is french by all means, even if there is a french and non french guy who are equal go with the french guy because of i am all for home grown talent.

    Would Dale Tallon still have a job if they made they move? If Tampa Bay, what about Stevie Y?

    You have zero rhetorical ability, Kabbie. Your assessment on my character in relation to this matter (and others) is flawed. Your analogies are insultingly immature. And your conclusions are completely off-point.

    Please forgive my mistaking your age.

    We’re goin in circles, Oodie.

    I say “à talent égal, privilege French.” That’s all I say. Not “French no matter what and screw those more competent, English or Chinese.”

    I say “We are a team whose CULTURE is based on French-Canadienship.” Not “I hate everybody who ain’t French” as Kid Kabbie would have you believe.

    Boucher was the best candidate at the time; Cunneyworth is now. I got no problem with that.

    But this “nevermind French; let’s go with the best” argument sticks in my craw because it implies that NON-French is the only way to go and that WITH French, we are getting further and further away from Victory.

    If we are GUARANTEED victory? Go with the Swahili guy for all I care.

    But a 1 in 30 chance like everybody else? French, please.

    In respect for the heritage that this team was created for.

    Goin in circles.

    Keepin it real, I be chillin as
