Montreal Canadiens Fans Want Guy Carbonneau Behind the Bench

Dany LemieuxContributor IJune 9, 2016

Watching Saturday night's hockey game between the Montreal Canadiens and the New Jersey Devils, I caught myself wondering what the fans were chanting in the third period.

"Carbo! Carbo! Carbo!"

Were the fans really chanting his name?

I am sure it was clear that the fans wanted Guy Carbonneau back with the team.

But listening to the French broadcast on RDS or on the French radio, it was impossible to know what was going on because none of the broadcasters mentioned it. Neither did the CBC on-air team.

So, how come nobody mentioned that?

Are the Canadiens this powerful? Can they tell the media to censor the broadcast of their games?

This is very strange because usually on RDS they talk about people who are showing their homemade signs saying that they love RDS. But when it comes to the evil Carbonneau, nobody talks about it.

The Montreal media have turned Carbonneau into "the bad guy" for the lack of success this team has had this season.

Wondering why "Carbo" has not talked to the media yet?

Some journalist went to see his mom to get her comments on her son's firing last week. Are you kidding me? 

She is in her 70s, leave the poor woman alone.

The media in "La Métropole" that are following the Canadiens are simply bipolars, and to me it seems like they are controlled by the team.

Carbonneau will talk to the media when he wants to and that is the way it should be.

In the mean time, lets read the love festival for Gainey and his team, which might very well miss the playoffs.

Where can I comment?
