Unfortunatly this is how the habs think. It is biting them in the win column because of this attitude. If they want french,then why not go all the way and only draft or trade for french people. Think about it.they want a french coach to coach english,cech,swedish,russian players.Sure makes it easy to convey how you want them to play your system .doesnt it ? Most foreign players have a tough enough time to learn english,now they have to learn french and try to understand how they are expected to play in different situations. What a mess.
