Supporting Saku

I would love to know where Guy Bertrand gets the stones to start criticizing such a high-caliber and high-class player such as Saku Koivu.

Koivu has battled back from cancer, raised and donated so much money for cancer research and equipment for hospitals in Montreal.

So what, he isn't fluent in French, he's Finnish! Contrary to Bertrand's beliefs, Koivu's non-fluency in French does not "demonstrate contempt" for the language; the first person to tell me when Koivu has shown contempt for anyone or anything wins a prize.

Bertrand shows more contempt for Koivu that Koivu does for the French language.

Your whining to the wrong people, Guy. Quebec loves Saku!
