Well, if you word it as abruptly as that, yeah. I'm generally interested in what kind of draw both he and other NHL players have to their childhood team once the reality of being an NHLer, in a different city, sets in.
I'm sure there are different levels,
Some players, i'm sure, would have the paul anka complex and be terrified of being judged negatively in their home town.
Some players would like to go there if it happened, but really dont care.
Some players would only persue it if their current organization gave up on them.
Some players would jump at the chance to go there if it came up.
Some players would go there as soon as they hit free agency, honoring the franchise that drafted them but still leaving.
Some players would actively attempt to make it happen, through trade demand.
so where does noesen fall on this spectrum? Where do most players fall on this spectrum? It's an interesting question.
I would imagine the majority of NHLers prioritize opportunity and money over hometown or childhood ties.
