    Quite the attention-grabbing headline, though I'm sure Tie didn't mean to take a shot at Arizona.

    Either way, I'm sure he's happy to see Max doing well in a new place.

    People say this all the time. No disrespect to Arizona, mtl is a different stratosphere. That's a real hockey market, maybe the hardest place to play in the world.

    It's MTL, he just speaks the truth. It's the craziest market in the NHL

    Well Montreal is the vatican of hockey in Canada, of the hockey world in fact. Russian players used to even comment on wanting to play for them. There is no place quite like it. It's the Yankees of hockey. The history, the passion, the knowledge of the fans.

    All you have to do is go to a game at the Bell Center on a Saturday night to know this. So I do get what Tie is saying. It sounds disrespectful, but really you would have a hard time finding another organization with the history, and championships the Habs have won.

    He's not wrong, but a little classless to put it so bluntly after the fact.

    I wonder if Tie tried fighting the reporters in between his drooling sentences.

    No disrespect, but it's obvious Arizona isn't a real hockey market compared to Montreal or Toronto.

    Tie thought he had more sway in Arizona than he did, they eventually tuned him out. Not surprised to see him take a subtle shot now.

    When things are good playing in a market like MTL or Tor is awesome but when they go bad and if you are the player in the barrel that week its rough

    The error is with the GM of Arizona. He did not come out and say they are a team.

    This is why Dorian is so underrated.

    at what point does Bettman pull the plug on Phoenix? They've been bleeding millions and millions of dollars for years. Experiment failed

    In the NFL or NBA they would have been moved already.

    Eh, they technically produced Matthews who will likely generate enough money to make up for what Phoenix hemorrhages every year.

    He's not wrong, sort of.

    I mean no disrespect to the dedicated Arizona fans or the players that play there. Those fans and those players are just as real as the fans and players anywhere else in the league. And it's not their fault the market is small. So when we're talking specifically about the organization we shouldn't have to pull our punches and worry about offending people. The facts are the facts, the market has struggled to support the team and the dead cap space they take on is a loophole to avoid having to pay players and it's embarrassing.

    The market is huge actually. They just don't care about hockey.

    That's pretty much everywhere. The way I look at it, in Montreal they are a very knowledgeable group of fans. And they are passionate. I mean any fan base that would riot in the streets as in the Richard riots, are fans most athletes would and should want to play in front of.

    Better to play for people that care, than not to care. I've been to games in many cities around the NHL. What I can say is going to the Bell Center on a Saturday is no other feeling I had. It's electric. I often wonder if this is how it would feel going to a Man U game in the UK. Something on my bucket list. I think Tie is just trying to convey this. In a time of standard political answers, I welcome frank honest comments like his.

    I don't get it. Why aren't all the other owners up in arms? They're the ones who have to pay for all of the losses.

    Definitely prevents an existential crisis that I am sure most NHL players go through at some point. Dorion obviously knows the psyche of struggling franchises.

    "Are we a team? Are we not a team? Am I a team? Do I even exist?"
