The Habs are not a popular destination. Yes, the history is great and the city cares about the team but frankly there are too many things about Montreal that players do not like. Media, pressure, taxes, etc.

If you think the Habs are at the top of players lists, you may be living in a bubble.

The only way the Habs start becoming a popular destination is if they start winning CONSISTENTLY and are lead by quality, well-respected, people.

Q. What team would you most like to play on?

A. The Montreal Canadiens, despite our recent problems, ranked 5th.

The questions were circulated to players by the NHLPA. The responses were compiled by staff members of the NHLPA and forwarded to Hockey Night in Canada. 318 players responded to the questionnaire.
