And if you had said anything about Marc not being limited by others (like Jordan in Pittsburgh) or the fact that Marc still has something to prove in New York (unlike Jordan in Pittsburgh), then I wouldn't have commented.
But instead, you brought up points that were, in fact, completely superficial. Considering (besides Jordan) there have been countless players that state they love the city they're playing in, that have been given some form of leadership, were homegrown players...and still left for another team for a variety of reasons. Most recent one would be Parise.
But like I said, I don't disagree that it's foolish to assume Marc will join Carolina just because his brothers play here. Just disagreed with your way of presenting that case.
