First I have to say that I disagree with the french only approach when choosing a coach. The problem with the whole issue is when people make comments like yours, calling people in Quebec whiners and a minority that should be ignored is exactly why most people in Quebec get on board with the "protect the language" debate. I agree that politic has no place in sports but the fact of the matter is that contrary to what you were saying the MAJORITY of the Montreal Canadiens' fan are francophone, they are the one filling the Bell Centre at every game, they are the one paying for this team. Most fans outside Quebec just watch games on TV and never (or rarely) contribute to the financial stability (viability) of the team. So even though I disagree, I empathize with them. For most Quebecers the Habs is a religion, they want to be able to hear from their coach in their language. I guess it would be like trying to talk to your priest and he speaks only Russian. Not acceptable.

Totally agree with Habfan4lfe!, I'm not a fan of Gomez but he is not the reason we lost, I'm starting to think more and more that Martin is the culprit.
