I also found a fake Dan Ellis account that had been started before all this ( http://twitter.com/dellis39 ) by what looks like a Preds fan.
dellis39 was his old twitter name. He changed to 33dellis when he went to Tampa.

His post wasn't so much about financial problems as it was having 18% taken from his check for escrow and the 24% that was taken from the NHLPA during the lockout. Yeah, I'd probably be a little pissed too.

I get his point and am probably one of the few people who was not worked up about the whole thing. I work two jobs (my regular 40+ hr job and one weekend a month in reserves), probably won't see the cash he makes this year until I'm in my early 60s.

With all of that being said, I'm not so sure I would have went on as long as he did.
