He has a serious attitude problem. He is given a chance by the Habs and he replies with a "we'll see"?
Send this idiot down the road to nowhere.
How do you know that he didn't have a couple of our others?
If he had 2 or 3 offers on the table, a smart man would look to see which opportunity presented him with the best chance to make the NHL. He's years away from the NHL, but that would still be where I'm looking rather than a team that was well built.
He might have had offers to turn pro in Europe or something too. The kid is trying to decide his life, you don't do that overnight.
The only thing I'm interested in is why he didn't get signed originally. If it was something like conditioning, maybe he's worked extremely hard on that and become well conditioned now.
