Barbara is a really nice guy. I actually got to know him a bit while playing for Carolina and doing some interviews and podcasts with him. He granted me the interview that got him some attention when he felt locked out by Montreal who where holding his MLS discovery rights but not willing to pay him much, therefore keeping him from signing for what he probably should have been making. A deal was then struck with Vancouver and we know what happened after that.
So one thing you will find with Etienne, even though he is a very nice guy, he will sometimes speak his mind and think later. It's something I'm sure Manny will have to keep an eye on. But I trust he will embrace the Stars supporters. Oh, and he really also enjoys fancy cars.
Let's see, will Stars fans get behind a guy who says crazy things? It's like they drafted him from behind the goal. Next, they'll put Jim Oliver on the pitch.
