Unless you were a fan of the team to begin with, there's absolutely no reason to sign with this team unless you were to think that we had a legit shot at a cup. We'll just have to hope that there are a lot of Hab fans out there who become top prospects... otherwise we're out of luck.
Exactly, the "media" ain't nothing else than fan like us, they don't know more about hockey, they don't think differently than the majority, they may have influence but they don't dictate what people think.

Give me a break. You're a professionnal athlete, if you can't handle pressure, choose a other job.
The "Yankee" example is completely ridiculous, it has nothing to do about money. NY will always attract free agents in any sports because of the city. How many millionaires live in Brossard you think?
You can probably count the number of millionaires in Montreal, it's a small village compare to New York, it's like St-Lin compared to here. Would athletes hoping to become stars want to move to St-Lin? "Oh! you'll be revered and adored by everyone at the Tim Hortons and people at the McDo will give you free big macs because fans are real passionate in St-Lin. " That's how stupid our GM sounds when he's talking to ufa about coming here.

Life is completely different in NYC than Montreal it's not even worth comparing. Pressure is just a word we like to throw around, it has more to do about respect of privacy and private life. It's much easier to escape that in a big city than a small town where everyone knows each other.
