I think the big city lights, attention, and live breath hockey in the other North East and Canada does also have an effect but should not effect the amount of players that it has.
I think they're respected around the league, but I don't think that equates to being a destination for top flight players. I mean, the mom & pop drug store around the corner is well respected, and has enjoyed some modest success, but if walmart comes tapping me for a corporate management position...

FWIW, though they haven't had the same issues retaining their guys, it isn't as if teams like San Jose or Detroit have had all that much success drawing free agents of late, nor have all those great Canadian cities.
