Guess i'm not a xenophobe....I don't get the French-Canadian coach thing...

Not really about xenophobia. More about how there are no successful ones.

I've never been called a xenophobe, but the truth is I'm not. I honestly just feel that America is the best country and all the other countries aren't as good. That used to be called 'patriotism'.

French Canadian coach.

I wouldn't have a problem with it. There are plenty of good French Canadian coaches, contrary to what the OP thinks. Just look at Guy Boucher in Tampa right now.

I was young, but I never disliked French Canadian coach Jacques Demers. He did win 2 jack adams awards and started the winning ways in hockeytown. Babs went to McGill in Montreal... food for thought.

Edit: I see Bryan Murray and Scotty Bowman were born in Quebec as well :o

Would you rather get stuck on a broken ski lift or in a broken elevator for 5 hours?

Would you rather miss your birthday or miss Christmas?

Would you rather eat toe nails or hair?

Taken from the Would you rather game.

That's not patriotism. That's called "American Exceptionalism" and it's dangerous. It's the idea that we're perfect, every other country is s***, and thus we do no wrong and only do right. We all know that's a crock of horsepuckey. People that think this way scare the living daylights out of me.

Moving on to the topic of the thread, I'd rather Nick retire.
