He's for sure going to rub people the wrong way... sure he says he prefers to play out the rest of his career as a Hab, but he also does not really seem to mind playing for another team since it could just be chalked up as "the business of hockey". TBH, sorta leaves a sour taste in my mouth while reading that as a die hard Habs fan.

Thoughts?
It's simple: Most players are humble morons and hockey culture states that being a humble moron embodies the perfect team player and winner.

PK has a brain and voices an opinion and and this goes against what we define as perceived hockey ideals.

I see PK as the movement of change and hopefully we will be able to look back at this in 20 years from now and see PK as the first of his kind.

All I can say is don't fall into the haters trap.
