That is as much speculation as my argument. Although mine has over 15 years of evidence behind it.

Probably not, but at the end of the day, you still come out better off in a place with less taxes (particularly in the US where mortgage payments are tax deductible) than you are in the highest taxed province / state in North America.

Well I'll assume the Roy deal is first, so (in no particular order):

- Ribs
- Carbonneau
- Turgeon (when he was traded away)
- John Leclair, Desjardins
- Chris Chelios (ignoring Savard's name recognition)

And that's just off the top of my head.
