Dont give me this sacrifice, blah blah...they play the game for money..plain and simple. In most cases, if someone offers more money, they will play for them.

Its not about character..its about $$$
Of course it's about character. If your goal is to play in the NHL, and you are this close, you sacrifice and put the work in to get there. If you mostly care about making a few extra dollars in the short term, then by all means, give up your "dream" and go play for pay. Maybe we just live in a generation of low character people who would sacrifice their ideals for a big screen tv and an over priced vehicle. It's not always about the money for everyone, but by your argument, I must assume that it is for you.
