Well maybe he likes dudes too, subby. You don't know that.

He is bilingual, at least.

I was hoping for entertainment with Patrick Roy, GM.

That *would* have been entertaining. (And qualified in promoting diversity. Special needs kids. Tourette syndrome...)

Still glad they didn't go that route. Nothing shows he'd be competent (not that I know anything about Kent Hughes' either)

Just remember: racist violence and discriminatory treatment are okay if the target appears white, male, and straight.

Disprove me if you can. You can't.

I'd expect the GM of the Canadiens to be named Pierre or Marcel. "Kent Hughes" could be selling auto insurance in Orlando.

Beaconsfield boy too. That's a surprise

Very well off Anglo enclave in the West Island.

He's a bilingual Anglo, like me. That's a surprise.

Alex Killorn is from there too

The only French sentence he needs to say is 'On a gagné.' If he makes that happen everyone will shut up.

I think the Francophone knockoff of Coach's Corner (still going as of last season) is compromising - they'll put up with a bilingual Anglo as GM but they'll be  calling him Quentin Dufour.
