read an article about jamie benn and i saw a comment by him that was disturbing...
here is the quote from the montreal gazette..
don't know if benn's comment was sarcastic/poking fun, or he really meant it....
if its the ladder, i can see why fans are anti-player in this lockout.........
if you have a player who refuses to play in canadian markets because his privacy might be compromised or can't deal media pressure, then players like him should be disrespcted....
benn is the example of the modern prima donna, diva like hockey player.... always wanting to dictate what teams to play for, mostly in US markets, when they waive their no-trade clause..
they're too soft to handle media pressure and refuses to be accountable to the media when his play on the ice begins to suck....
i think joe nieuwendyk probably had a great influence on benn, that playing in a canadian market is considered with some disdain... .....remember the salary dispute nieuwendyk had with the flames? he dearly wanted to get out of calgary....
it kinda sucks that the players want us to support them in this lockout, but at the same time refuses to play in a canadian market because the media there is too oppressive....or any trivial reasons to avoid them...
it's not that he is too soft to deal with the media pressure or that he's a prima donna or something. maybe it's just something he's unable to do. speaking to people and being open regardless of whether it's a part of his job is really difficult for some people no matter how hard they were to try and do it. don't blame the guy and make assumptions
