This is the beauty of being an nhl player. I cant think of any other sport in north america where you have the luxury of choosing to play in a rock star environment like Montreal, or in relative anonymity like Florida, and make really decent cash either way. I'm talking about UFA status, of course.

It should not be a revelation that some players don't like the spotlight, in fact, I think there's far more of them than we think.

I would not take this as a slight against Canada, but rather a reflection of his personality. If there was such a thing as a Canadian environment with little spotlight, I think he would consider it.
