Among last year's pleasant surprises, Anthony Richard's play certainly stood out. The young player was great with the Rocket and looked good when recalled by the Habs.

So it was disappointing to see him sign a two-way contract with the Bruins, the same offer he had on the table with the CH. Why would a Quebecer go to Boston despite a comparable offer?
Anthony Richard was keen to explain his decision, which has been widely criticized since it was announced.
I negotiated with the Canadiens during the season. I could have stayed. But with all the youngsters coming up, I thought I had a better chance of playing in the NHL with the Bruins."

- Anthony Richard on 98.5 FM

Let's face it, the youngsters are growing on the Habs and the Bruins have a pretty ugly prospect bank.
So it's understandable that Richard preferred to have more chances to live his dream and play on a regular basis in the NHL.
