Sadly, we don't do things as a group. He will be booed by most, far less will applaud.
We still boo Gomer and Martin! Christsakes move on! It makes us look so uneducated.
I remember when Marty achieved some milestone (personally) in Montreal, (I realize he's from that neck of the woods).and Habs fans cheered/applauded for him at the end of the game in their building. Comment was they're "classy". That wouldn't happen in our building if a player on another team achieved something.
I think we should applaud, and then once the puck is dropped, his years here are erased.
What a load of bs. Gomez went to the Rangers! The fvcking Rangers! And it's not like he only went to the team to play, he made it out like it was his childhood dream to play for them. I'll never cheer that guy, ever. Nobody really boos Martin much anymore cause he sucks, hell even most Penguins fans don't like him.
Now let's get the 2nd part of your bs out of the way. The Montreal fans cheered Marty cause he's a French Canadian. They will cheer anyone who does well that's French Canadian. That's how they are.
