Canadiens/Blackhawks, Language, Sabres and More

Jonathan Toews - Chicago Blackhawks v Pittsburgh Penguins
Good morning Hab addicts.

The Canadiens have quite a challenge ahead, facing off against the almighty Blackhawks tonight.

Jonathan Toews is having a Hart-worthy campaign. Marian Hossa has been on a tear with 37 points. Former Senator Ray Emery has wrestled away the starting position from Montreal native Corey Crawford.

And yet, with all of these captivating story lines, all we are focused is the language of the coach.

TSN - Carbonneau says Habs coach must know French to survive

Louis' Note: Really? How is the French of Dick Irvin? Or Scotty Bowman? Or Toe Blake? Or maybe they had  a hard time learning French because they had a combined 16 Stanley Cup rings stuck in their ears.

TSN - Montreal tabloid rips Cunneyworth for 'another loss'

Louis' Note: Personally, I enjoy how TSN calls le Journal de Montreal a tabloid as opposed to a newspaper. Good on them for calling a spade a spade.
