Burn on Florida. They can't keep anyone. Right before the draft too. No way Bouwmeester is sticking around now.

Who the hell is "Jauques" Martin, subby?

Come on, it was even spelled out in the article.

Good on Florida for getting rid of that idiot, Montreal, what the hell are you doing?

Well, this certainly deserves a face palm if I ever did see one. I'm still putting myself in the "wait and see" category, but my expectations have certainly been lowered for the next Canadiens' season.

Also as an Ottawa fan, Martin is a good coach... until the playoffs come around, then it's all down hill from there.

/Martin's trapping style isn't too exciting either

That really came out of left-field.

what is the difference between a Canadian and a Canadien? Is it just a French styling of the spelling / sound?

To be fair, a Habs fan probably submitted this headline. That is all.

Sort of like how we have Americans and Amurrkans.

A Canadian is someone who has Canadian citizenship.
A Canadien is a player in Montreal's hockey team. He will usually have a name that begins with K and Russian or Finnish citizenship.

I'm confused. Why does Georges Laraque approve?

What?

No, Canadien specifically refers to a French-Canadian. It comes out of colonial times when people from Upper and Lower Canada would differentiate themselves with different names.

A Canadian is someone who has Canadian citizenship who generally does not hang around with Russian mafia members.
A Canadien is a player in Montreal's hockey team. He will usually have a name that begins with K and Russian or Finnish citizenship and inspires riots.


Little help there for you. It's a team effort.

jekostas: It comes out of colonial times when people from Upper and Lower Canada would differentiate themselves with different names.

The people who lived in New-France used to call themselves "Canadiens" even before Upper Canada was colonized.

The Hockey team was named "Les Canadiens" because it was made mostly of French-Canadians, while the Maroons were the anglo team.

But more importantly, it was a joke. As a French-Canadian whose ancestors first set foot in Quebec City in 1618, I think I have a pretty good grasp of where the name comes from.

Russian players, Italian Mafia. but apart from that, you got it.

He should be able to draw on his experience coaching the Senators to help him work with talented players who are lazy as fark.

/looking at YOU Havlat.

Bah no the Kost brother is the one hanging out with all the wrong people. Just one sniffing bad guy is enough to give the rest of the team a reputation.

And whats with Price smoking anyhow?

Just what the Habs need. A guy who isn't a fan of offense and went to the playoffs with Ottawa 8 times and came back with nothing.

/Should never have fired Guy
//Go Habs!
