Guest Banishing Blade Posted October 30, 2007 Report Share Posted October 30, 2007 I hope Koivu never reads the article, as it's quite evident that Bertrand's only using Koivu as a pretext to voice his opinions. Koivu addresses the media as best he can, and in a language he feels comfortable in communicating with. What's funny is that (though this is only a gut feeling) if Koivu ever attempted to formulate a French sentence, I'm sure someone like Bertrand would roast him for butchering the language It's very unfortunate that he makes the utmost effort to help out a team with certain fans who seem to despise him, people who criticize him, and a team that hasn't been elite in who knows how long... you'd think that not only his on-ice play, but his extra-curricular actions, would gain him some respect... evidently, that can easily be disqualified due to not being able to speak French. My girlfriend was more upset with this article than I was, and she's a francophone Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
