I just thought it was highly aggressive to buy an entire league to get JB..
Not to mention they had rights to all players from the Montreal area to begin with..
Then American teams had to go pretty much to the middle of no where to find players...
IMO the Habs were spoiled to death with talent in the original 6 era and buying leagues to force players who never wanted to play for them in the first place is insane..
Don't get me wrong I have no ill will against the Habs, I just think back in those days they felt entitled..
^^ Sorry for the semi-rant..
I hope you Habs fans dont take it the wrong way, that was many years ago.
