It was not a shot at him not knowing where something was on a map. I was making a statement that I don't think he really cares to play here because its not a big hockey market.
I understand what you are getting at, I just don't think it's much to be concerned with. Most players that dream of playing in the NHL never get an opportunity to play for a team that was their favorite. Certainly, the Preds have had their fair share of foreign players, who likely knew nothing of the city or state, and were more than happy to play there. Until something is specifically mentioned to the contrary, this shouldn't be a concern.
