Koivu = heart. Lol classic though.... people will always associate money with being heartless, having no values, etc.. You're a businessman who made money? "T'es un crosseur"... You're an athlete or artist who made money? "T'es un vendu"...

You can't blame the athletes for making money, it's simply based on offer and demand. Would you rather have NHL owners make 50M a year because they pay their players 100K each? Would that make more sense? Most guys out there, no matter where they are from, play for the love of the game... those who don't, well they simply don't last. Daigle didn't last, Yashin didn't last, etc. You think Sakic, Modano, Lidstrom, all those guys still play because they need money? You think Tim Thomas tried harder and harder every year, for 8 years, to make it, simply to be rich? Nah, thoses guys play because they love the game... Making money is just a perk (and a very nice one I might add).
