I always give the example of Marcel Dionne, imagine if he had played his entire career in Montreal instead of in LA for most of it? The guy had over 1700 career NHL points, over 700 goals, yet barely talked about here.
If you are a great french canadian player, why wouldn't you want to play in Montreal?
Either you become a legend, of you become Marcel Dionne..
Sorry, but easy choice for me.
I agree but I think the reason is some guys just want to play hockey. They don't want to play hockey and be pop-culture icons.
