i find fault with the THN for that quote...not me....

in the benn article, if someone has access to the 2012-13 thn yearbook, look at the next page where THN highlighted benn's "avoid canada" comment....

from my view, i think the THN is to blame and also the article did not, from i can recall, did not mention his shyness.....by me reading the quote framed my view that modern day hockey players avoid canadian markets because of the excess media coverage, the lack of privacy, higher taxes, the inclement weather, and a lack of nightlife.....

look at the NHLers today, look at the prongers, the heatley's, all of them deliberately wanted to avoid or leave canadian markets because of the reasons i mentioned above...

if the smart people who write for the THN (i think adam proteau wrote the story) had mentioned his shyness, and did not highlight the "avoid canada" quote, this post would never been created....

proteau's article which highlighted benn's comment on avoiding canada because the number of reporters should be blamed...not me.....
