Yah right. My wife if Quebecois from a family of 10 kids.....    

 

Quebec and france share so many cultural things.. movies..  singers.. comedians . etc...     The two countries are like cousins.....  distant but very

friendly...

 

My sis in law lives DT Paris for 10 years now..  St. Germain de pres district....  Very beautiful part of paris if you get there.

More local.  Super beautiful.  Jardin de Luxembourg is there....

He speaks French with a Quebecois accent.  His parents moved to Quebec when he was a teenager.  His wife is also from Quebec.  He told a TV show earlier this summer that he would like playing for Montreal but was going to look out for his best interest - they were apparently interested in signing him too.

When younger, I got to Quebec City a few times.  It’s fabulous!  Montreal was too big.  I didn’t care for it.

Roussel kind of reminds me of Burrows.  Burr likely loved the Habs too, but he sure bled for us.

I think Roussel is going to be really good for us.

The best part of Quebec is the small towns..... so old and very French.

Families been there for so many generations.. so friendly..

Visit the Eastern Townships ( lots of English history there ) , very beautiful...

Just great, two of our UFA signings don't even start the season.

Roussel is the only one out that I know of. Schaller was cleared to play and was on the ice today as far as I know. Both will be ready to go to start the season barring any further injuries to them.

I didn't realize this, thanks for the update! (I was thinking Schaller)

Is Roussel ever gonna play for us? He just suffered a setback in his recovery... signed a nice 4-year deal but didn't take care of himself properly in offseason...

He suffered a concussion. How is that any indication of anything?

Exactly! All players signed to new contracts in the summer must be bubble wrapped until the beginning of the preseason. What was Antoine thinking playing hockey in the summer?!?!?!

Sure - if he did not practice playing hockey, he could have avoided all sorts of accidents.

Every accident in the history of the world 'could've been avoided' ! Got to live your life. Can't barricade yourself in the basement.
