not very well translated - written in French and translated into English. the narrator mangles a lot of words.
there is nothing about the locker room here. this is just a narrative of Habs history.
the author's bias is very evident and very heavily belabours the whole English va French garbage in Montreal.
quite boring in parts, too.
