Defenseman Yannick Weber helped to trigger what is expected to be a long exodus of National Hockey League players out of North America this past Tuesday. Signing with Geneva-Servette HC of the Swiss National League A, he may, however, be going about this all wrong.
Doesn’t he know his versatility as both a seventh defenseman/13th forward can be of great use within the retail sector? Not only can he stack shelves and bag groceries, but his contributions may very well know no bounds, except maybe at the customer-service desk. Everyone knows he’s a little too giving in that department.
Of course, the one flaw in this plan is that Weber would arguably have to take away work from someone more in need than he...similar to what he’s doing right now, actually.
In any case, here are five other Habs who may find their talents translate well to another workplace and could look for work outside hockey during the current lockout.
