Where did I mention Canadian, American, Swedish or any other country in my post? Whether you like it or not, Russians are, in most part, extremely talented but they are also just as moody, inconsistent and there is always going to be the threat of the KHL looming.

Again, putting my hopes on a player from that country, based on recent history, scares the hell out of me and I would tend to stay away... especially if a good offer came from another team.

I'm not going to lower myself to that level sorry. People can think differently than me without having idiotic views.
Okay I'll change my post.

I hope Montreal never acquires any players like Pavel Datsyuk, Evgeni Malkin, Andrei Markov, Sergei Fedorov, Igor Larionov, Pavel Bure, Alex Mogilny, Vladimir Konstantinov, Slava Fetisov, Sergei Zubov, Sergei Gonchar, Ilya Kovalchuk. Wouldn't want those moody, inconsistent Russians on my team.

Its silly.

Judge a player individually by who he is, not where he's born.
