They read their sports pages, know their statistics and either root like hell or boo our butts off. I love it. Give me vocal fans, pro or con, over the tourist types who show up in Houston or Montreal and just sit there.
I would compare that to when I first started with the Montreal Canadiens; it was a big family then, where the guys really stuck together and worked like a unit. But when I came back in '88, it was not like that anymore.
I was born in Montreal and came from a lower-middle-class family.
For me, unemployment and poverty in the Greater Montreal area is not mainly a problem of structure, or design, or statistics. It is a profoundly human situation.
And some places you been before are so great that you don't ever mind going back. Some places you been before you don't ever want to go back, you know, like Montreal in the Winter.
No, I love Montreal... I think I love Montreal more than Montreal loves me... I love the food there.
For over 20 years, the federal and provincial governments have made enormous efforts employing a variety of approaches in an attempt to stimulate Montreal's economy.

I think people in Montreal smoke a lot, and I used to smoke when I was 17-18, and just picked it up when I was playing juniors. But I think I stopped when I was 22, which was a big decision in my life.

You know, what's nice about Montreal? Not only is it a beautiful city, but you have Cuban cigars...
Growing up, mostly in Montreal, I was an only child of loving parents.
I ended up in the US for a month or so, before moving to Montreal with some Romanian friends.
I think over there in Montreal they're a bit hardcore with the old homos. They're not that keen on them.

I have an enormous family because I'm from Montreal and my family's Catholic, so my dad has eight siblings and they all have kids and we all grew up in the same property on weekends and summers.
The excitement of the fans in Montreal, especially in the playoffs, I don't think you can get that anywhere else. For a hockey player, I kind of wish everyone could go through that and experience what it is to play there. It's very unique.
And, of course, all of my friends and family are so excited because they feel like Montreal is being represented on Mad Men.
