It's a bonus, but it's not a reason to acquire said players.

Sorry man...you're gonna have a hard time convincing me that the language that comes out of a persons mouth, impacts their ability on the ice or their teamates...again, I think that's superficial
you're saying language is not an issue... Okay so tell me sir, why in hell would Steve Yzerman trade for Desjardins who's a marginal goalie (lot are saying) why you could get a plethora of goalies who could serve the same purpose... And why would they sign Marc-Antoine Pouliot, a type of player that you could also find a 100 times in north america... i'd like to get your take on this as i believe that the langage spoken by these two are a factor. Not a major one as english being the language of the hockey world will always dominate in hockey but i do believe it is a factor...
