It's not the perfect solution, but it's damn better than to throw a star kid into the Montreal clubtown with no parachute and a notification that he's to show up tomorrow morning at the arena for training.

Youth management has been a disaster in Montreal for years simply because of the passive attitude we held. It's damn time we do something!
What do you want mangement to do? Tell fans and puckbunnies and tabloids to stop following him?

Crosby was dealing with rock star status since he was 15, much more mature.
