Why would MLSE blow money trying to ice a good team when they're already making insane money? The fans will buy the tickets, the jerseys, pay for parking, etc regardless. It doesn't matter if they finish 1st or 30th. They made money. It's a business. No offense to the Leaf fans...

In the Olympics, they play for their country. No huge endorsements, no multi-million dollar contracts, that doesn't matter. The honor of playing for your homeland is why they do it.

BTW I've been a Pens fan since 1987, and that silver medal our guys worked their ***** off for means more to me then any of our Stanley Cups.
I'm a leafs fan and havent seen a cup my whole life, and i would rather canada win the olympics than the leafs winning a cup... even tho i know all the players are millionaires the fact that they aren't getting paid and are sacrificing their bodies and playing hard for the country anyways makes it more exciting
