Not only do I risk going to the place I absolutely hate, but I also give up 5 years of my life to it. And no, crying foul and demanding a trade will not work with this contract, because I'm no Chris Pronger.
And why exactly is what you would do relevant to this in any way, shape or form?It isn't that they're going somewhere they "hate".I doubt any of them have some personal vendetta against Edmonton.What I'm saying is that regardless of the team that gives the offer sheet, signing it guarantees they'll make that amount.
