I know that of course, but I love the thought that guys like Radulov will do whatever it takes to play in Quebec because they like the city. Radulov has already shown quite clearly he will follow the money.

I think it's as naive to assume that a happy experience in junior hockey will have any more impact than the "home" factor has on players from Ontario and Quebec.

I can see a Nordiques team going all out for Radulov because he's popular there, but the day he signs for the Nords because he likes living in Quebec is the same day Habs fan Sidney Crosby decides he's going to sign for the Canadiens.

I am looking forward to seeing Nords fans get their dreams crush when NHL realities mean their Remparts heroes snub offers to return to QC.
