The Montreal Canadiens have expressed their unhappiness over a tweet from new Montreal mayor Denis Coderre on David Desharnais which reads,"Hello? Can we get a one-way ticket to Hamilton for David Desharnais please..."

The Montreal Canadiens are not happy with new city mayor Denis Coderre's tweet on David Desharnais.

According to the Canadian Press, Desharnais "has drawn the ire of some Montreal Canadiens" for his tweet about Habs center Desharnais during the Nov. 10 4-2 win over the New York Islanders to snap a four-game losing streak.   

The tweet reads,"Hello? Can we get a one-way ticket to Hamilton for David Desharnais please..."

For the record, Desharnais, who inked a four-year, $14 million extension in March, has recorded just one assist in 17 games to start the 2013-14 NHL season. 

Nevertheless, some of his teammates and his head coach sprang to his defense. 

Canadiens left wing Max Pacioretty -- Desharnais' linemante -- was one of the more outspoken ones regarding the issue. 

"I'm very, very upset about that.

"What, do you think he's gonna coach our team tomorrow? That's embarrassing...

"To bring down a player -- such a great person, such a great player, such a hard worker...Davey's a true competitor and he's a great player and a great teammate, and that's just so uncalled for...It's only going to make matters worse." 

The Canadian Press report also quotes Habs defenseman Josh Gorges as saying,"It's wrong to kick someone when they're down." 

For his part, Montreal head coach Michel Therrien quipped,"I really believe this is inappropriate from our mayor." 

The controversy is just the latest among a string of headline-grabbing incidents in Coderre's first week in office as indicated in the report.

"Since Coderre won the election, he has already had a run-in with the Parti Quebecois provincial government over its religion charter; with the powerful mayor of Quebec City over a perceived slight to him; and now with the Canadiens.

"He also encouraged embattled Toronto mayor Rob Ford last week to swtich to 'Diet Coke.'"

Coderre beat out fellow Liberal Melanie Joly by a vote of 32 percent to 27 percent to become Montreal mayor on Nov. 3. On the day of his proclamation, he said of Montreal,"We have a magnificent city. It is one of the most beautiful metropolises in the world." 

As for the Canadiens, they are currently fifth in the Atlantic Division with a 9-8-1 record as of Nov. 11.
