kinot-1 Posted March 25, 2011 Report Share Posted March 25, 2011 I have been thinking of this for the last few years and,,,,,,well, back in the day,,,,when you were drafted, you were very proud to put on the sweater of the team that drafted you. It didn't matter which team it was,,,,you gave your all on the ice. Now it seems that players (if they have the skill) play only for the dollars. You have 2-3 good years and lo-and-behold, they give you a big contact. After that, you can float for the remainder of the contract. You could probably go through every team and find a player or 2 that has a big contract and ends up floating. In particular,,,,(because I have been following the Habs since forever), in the 60's, 70's, and early 80's, the Habs players played for the Crest on their sweaters. Not anymore,,,,,,they play for the bucks. JM2C Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
