We are lucky to have a head coach like Martin St-Louis in Montreal and, clearly, it's a mutual feeling. We'll come back to this.

Martin St-Louis and his colorful statements



We have already become accustomed to St-Louis's special statements and quotes, so we don't make too much of a fuss even though it's always appreciated.

However, for journalists from outside who are visiting Montreal, it's all new and they are discovering who St-Louis really is.


In a press conference earlier today, Martin notably made the following statement. It almost gives chills because it was so sincere and heartfelt.

We asked Martin St-Louis to put into perspective what it means to play hockey on a Saturday night at the Bell Centre.

His answer:

"If it was my last day on Earth and you asked me where I would want to be, I would want to be exactly in that building, on a Saturday night." - Martin St-Louis

Via Eric Engels.


Wow! The Edmonton Oilers journalists couldn't believe it on social media.

They had never seen, at least this season, a head coach express themselves in this way. They seem to have loved it.

"As good a quote as we've heard all season!" - Mark Spector, journalist for Edmonton

And there are several comments of this kind.

In any case, St-Louis still knows how to surprise the experts! And if some doubted that he is still a huge enthusiast, this settles the matter!
