Whether it's the Montreal night life, the rock star treatment, or the pressure of playing for the home team. For one reason or another hometown talent drafted by the Canadiens rarely work out. Guillaume Latendresse, and now Maxim Lapierre are the most recent casualties of players that had enough and wanted out. Will Louis Leblanc finally break this trend of homegrown talent not working out?
Mark January 22 on your calender for the return of Maxim as the fans will definately boo him the way they booed Guillaume when he came back with Minnesota. Lucky for Maxim it will also be the return of Saku Koivu.
