Brisebois At Home In Colorado

from the Rocky Mountain News,
Attending hockey games in Montreal is considered a sort of religious experience, where the Canadiens are the objects of reverence. When things are going well, there isn't a better place for an NHL player to be. But when a player isn't performing up to ridiculously high expectations, or if the team isn't winning, the wrath of the media and fans can be unbearable. That was the case for Patrice Brisebois three years ago when the stress became so great from the hometown fans' booing that he developed an irregular heartbeat and needed some time off. It's why, when the Canadiens decided in the summer not to pick up the $3.4 million option on his contract, making him an unrestricted free agent, he couldn't have been more pleased. The 34-year-old defenseman seems to have found a home with the Colorado Avalanche.
