You seem to be aggressive in your words especially against English when you say "Why is English the lead language in the world anyway? It is easily one of the world’s worst languages." and when you say "This is the way it NEEDS to be here. If you don’t like it, get lost." Why not try to come up with logical and rational arguments instead of getting emotional and irrational. The problem with this team is not about language. Berel Weiner

Watching the game last night I fell into my pattern of "this sucks but they will play better any minute now." When they continued to "suck" I fell into my second pattern of "There must be something better to watch on TV." I kept switching channels looking for something to get my mind off of the Habs' poor and indifferent play. Being sadly optimistic I kept returning to the game hoping they had turned it around. I keep thinking back to their great run against Boston last year and hoping that what they brought to each game was not just a mirage. This morning I think back of the "pride" the players used to have here in Montreal. We, the fans, deserve a team is that is as proud to put on the Habs' jersey as we are to cheer them on. Playing and cheering for the Habs used to be a source of pride.

I can't believe I keep giving this team the benefit of the doubt. "They are losing because their star players have not yet gotten into the zone." Wait till Markov comes back." "Some key players must be injured." The truth is, teams like the Penguins played playoff hockey this year with out their top assets. Talent is one thing you either have or don't have but "heart" must be part of the culture of the team. Only coaches who know how to enable this culture of "heart" to flourish should be hired here in Montreal. I would rather have a coach here who speaks with "heart" in any language. The head can design systems and tactics but speaking with the heart and the head makes champions.
