Even though he was captain, Turgeon didn't have much pressure when he was with the Habs. We knew he had talent but he was never seen as more than he was.

On the other hand Richer...boy he was supposed to be the next big thing. When he scored 50 goals it was like the Earth stood still. When Richer came in it was like the first year of Latendresse as far as expectations and people wanting for him the be the "Great French Hope". "Le petit Québecois" making good. People were very hard on him too when they realised Richer lacked the drive associated with his talent.

Turgeon was what we expected him to be, a talented softy.
