Leftover bitterness from No Goal and perhaps also the Super Bowl losses likely plays a ton into that.

I think a lot of people are making this decision as a fan of the Sabres, not as a player making a career move.

As a Sabres fan, Buffalo is definitely on my list of places I wouldn't want to end up

It's in Texas. Not to get political but generally speaking I'd prefer to live in a place with higher taxes. I wouldn't mind Canada at all.

I'd personally want no part of the cities who seemingly check out on their teams, or don't draw fans:

Phoenix
Florida
Tampa Bay to a lesser degree
Carolina because I hate them
Columbus

Id throw Nashville on there also.

I'm pretty much sure sabres are on every players "no trade"-list outside of buffalo.

That said, I'd never go to Winnipeg, Philly, Nasville, Columbus.

1.) Phoenix - "I'd rather be dead in California than alive in Arizona".
2.) Carolina - It's the south.
3.) Tampa Bay - see #2
4.) Florida - see #2
5.) Nashville - see #2
6.) Dallas - see #2
7.) New York Islanders - A joke of a franchise as long as Wang owns them.
8.) New Jersey - Wouldn't want someone as dusty as Lamoriello as my boss.

Good thread

Edmonton (too cold)
Carolina (too NASCAR, too Brind'Amour)
Calgary (team going nowhere for a good long while IMO)
Columbus (team going nowhere for an even longer while)
Dallas (too Hull, too far away from... everything)
Florida (just... too Florida)
Toronto (lol... )
NY Islanders (sort of a joke post-mid 1980s)

I'm with ace. Higher taxes correlates with other more desirable things.


I also need a winter. Perhaps not as severe as one in upstate NY, but I'm not sure I could go further south to live in the winter months than Washington. A lack of any kind of snow is definitely a minus for me, though not neccessarily a deal breaker.

My 8:

Florida
Dallas
Phoenix
Carolina
New Jersey
Nashville
Islanders

....not sure I'd have an 8th. Boston? (I do hate them...) Rangers? (not a city person...)

Without getting political, I'm not sure how in depth I can go.

Theoretically, more taxes = more money to be spent on things like infrastructure and education.

Healthcare

But anyway, I'd love to go someone warm.

I'll try to stay out of political side too but... they just built a new state of the art highway thru Dallas.... and are using the private sector to fund new highways.

From an economic stand point.. can't argue Texas success over high taxed states like California and New York.

Their education could certainly be better tho. Maybe if the high schools put money into education instead of world class football stadiums it might help

So I spent 10 minutes writing out this response only to find the thread on the main board locked when I was done, but since I like these kind of threads I decided to share here. I don't mean to troll or offend anyone with some of my reasons, so if I do, I'm sorry.

Phoenix: At the risk of this coming off as trolling, I'd rather play in front of fans. Plus I would hate living in Phoenix.
Dallas: I wouldn't like living in Dallas either.
Florida: I just don't see anything there for me. Team is bad, not many fans either.
Calgary: No words needed. On top of that, I'd have to live in Calgary.
Edmonton: Kinda like Calgary, only they actually have a decently promising future.
Washington: Although it'd be cool to live in the capital of the U.S., that teams direction seems uncertain, although they seem to be getting back on track slightly, who knows how long it'll last with McPhee at the helm.
Detroit: I don't want to play on a team whose ship is sinking, while the fans still have sky high expectations.

I could only think of seven that I wouldn't want to be traded to.

Just because I had so much fun doing that, I'm gonna give my GM a list of five teams I'd prefer to go to if he could work out a good deal for me, because I don't want to screw over the franchise that's been loyal to me for my entire career:

Vancouver: As much as I hate the team, I hear the city is second to none. I'd love to go there, and I feel like with a pro athlete's salary I could even afford to live there.
Boston: I'd love to live on the East coast as well, and I'd prefer Boston over New York or New Jersey.
Nashville: I've been to Nashville before, and even though it doesn't appeal to everyone, it appeals to me. I'd love to live there, and it's a small market, so I wouldn't get much media attention, which would be ideal for a family.
Toronto: On the other hand, I'm a cocky ***** sometimes, and if I'm a good player, having the spotlight in Toronto would be fun. Not to mention I hear Toronto is a nice city, and their fans would argue vehemently that I'm one of the best players in the league no matter how good I actually am. Talk about stroking a man's ego.
Minnesota: My favorite team. The stadium is first class, and the fans are amazing. You have the benefits of both a Canadian market and an American market. Not to mention the team is (hopefully) heading in the right direction.

Good list.

I think Vancouver would be my top spot too... Just cause it's crazy beautiful.
