All we have to care about is that he is not alienating people so that it will change the team's spirit. We also have to care enough that we have the leadership needed to fix whatever problems we may have in that regard, whether it's PK or anybody else. And all we have to care is if we're a better team with everybody in the lineup despite their "persona". The fact that some might not like him...who the **** cares....

It is just a question of mentality. You watch soccer and you continuously hear and see teamates yelling at each other, the goalie giving them **** all the time and so on. If that would be happening here with the Habs, you'd have PJ Stock and "Le Journal de Montréal" with some "The chaos lives here" titles running around....

No doubt that you wish the best spirit possible. But you also want the BEST team possible.
This. I'd be curious how many times in history 23 people in any setting (work, party, sports team, whatever) genuinely liked, respected, and worked well with all the others in the group.

It would be a first.
