Well then the kid is dumb if he's just going to let himself wallow in an unmarketable city and loser team.
Or he was brought up the right way, rather than as a spoiled brat (See Lindros). What is to say this kid isn't so good that he doesn't make EDM the next Pitt? The Pens were bankrupt, an NHL afterthought, and about to move before they got Crosby. He changed the fortunes of that team and now they are on NBC broadcasts every other night and one of the most marketable teams in the league.
Would you be saying the same thing if we won the lottery and were getting him instead of EDM? I highly doubt it, but we are almost as unmarketable as the Oilers, and last I checked our team is garbage and hasn't made the playoffs in 3 years so we aren't in a position to call another organization a bunch of losers.
