Last summer, we surveyed nearly 3,000 fans to find out their moods at the dawn of a new Canadiens season. At the end of the 2022-23 campaign, are fans still in the same place?
That’s what @ArponBasu and I want to find out.https://t.co/y1y0o2liD1

This negative side comes mainly from people who think they can do whatever they like on these platforms, and who don’t hesitate for a second before sending hateful and disrespectful comments to other people, usually public figures.
One of those public figures who receives such horrible messages is TVA Sports’ Montreal Canadiens play-by-play announcer, Félix Séguin.
Séguin is not universally appreciated by CH fans, and is often criticized.
However, in no way does Félix Séguin deserve to receive hate messages and insults.
It’s a lovely, touching message from the Tricolor’s Saturday night voice.
He explains that receiving so many defamatory and hateful messages on a daily basis (even if they’re sent by people who represent a small percentage of society) becomes very difficult.
It’s a real shame to see people getting away with everything on social networks, hiding behind their screens.
Félix Séguin, nor anyone else, should have to put up with this.
So that’s why the CH game descriptor is inviting people to take the time to send some love to a public figure they love, in order to make a difference.
It’s a beautiful message and a beautiful gesture from Félix Séguin.
Here’s hoping that one day there will be a world without these web trolls.

– CF Montreal will be in action tonight.

Off we go to KC 📍

– A good read.
The City of Calgary and the Government of Alberta will spend $850M in public funds to build a new arena for the Flames. This is an appalling trend that is spreading across Canada. https://t.co/leKxzktXaF

– An extension? No problem for the Hurricanes.
Lou Lamoriello teams now 1-8 all-time in OT games vs Hurricanes.
Travis Zajac Game 3 in 2009 for Devils provided only OT winner.
Three Cup wins, five Finals with Devils, two semi appearances with Isles, but Canes have some kind of hex. https://t.co/Txlwle6tZx
