Dupois, on the other hand, is getting a raw deal: either sign for $385K (a joke) or get tied up far below the league average until you are 27. Not fair. How about a 2 year deal?
If 385K is a joke, I'm laughing. Raw deal? 3+Million dollars to play hockey for four years? I know I sound like Joe Sixpack here, but sometimes these reporters and athletes lose their sense of reality. On the other hand, it's true that the players deserve the money more than the investors or management.
