You are continuing with the excuse. Because that is all it is. An excuse.
If your excuse were valid, why isnt Columbus Ohio the hotbed destination for all of the NHL star players to flock to. No pressure. No being bothered away from the arena. No "fans" to worry about. A passive media.
The reason that they are not is because your excuse is nothing more than that, an excuse without validity.
Talented players, regardless of sport, want to be associated with a team for one reason. To win. And hopefully win a championship.
Location is irrelevant to most. Fans are completely the most irrelevant piece in this issue. Sorry to burst some bubbles but professional players do not give a damn about the fan who might cheer or might boo or might buy a jersey with the player's name on it.
Its about money and its about having the best opportunity to win a championship.
The Canadiens have had horrible management for two decades......
Rejean Houle, Andre Savard, Bob Gainey, Pierre Gauthier.
And now we have Bergevin. Bergevin has to show to the athletes........not the fans.........that he is serious about building a competitive team in Montreal. A well balanced team of skill and toughness. Then, and only then, will the elite players start looking at Montreal as a place that they want to play.
