the supposed reason he didn't want to play in Quebec is he (he, his parents, and agent) felt he wouldn't get the type of exposure he deserved playing in a small market such as Quebec. He felt if he played in a bigger market he would get alot more endorsements.
Now I wouldn't doubt he would play in Montreal, but seeing as most Quebecer's are habs fans, I don't think it would be a popular move by management, and the type that could really back fired in their face.
