Can some one please explain what the difference is? I mean, why are the Havs known as Canadiens - but the correct spelling for people from Canada is Canadians???

Plus, what is a Hav??

The hockey team is known as:
Montreal Canadiens

For some reason, they have a second name of the "Havs."

The normal spelling for the plural meaning person from Canada is:
Canadian

I don't understand... wacky.

It's a French word since Montrealers speak French. A Canadian male is Canadien, a female is Canadienne, a group would be Canadiens.

Absinthe is correct. English and French are the official languages of Canada, hence the different spellings for Canadian-Canadien.

You mean "Habs"... and I honestly have no idea about the origin of this either. Must be French background.

EDIT: I hate you guys for getting questions into my head... had to Google this one!
