I think that a lot of us look at NHL players and think that they are lucky, spoiled or even live a better life than us, truth is that everyone of them go through way more than we can see and the majority of them have the same problems as someone making minimum wage, I recently spoke to someone who knew a professional NHL player personally and said that after he got injured and retired, he was only in his 30's and had no more money to maintain his lifestyle and eventually went bankrupt and did not even have enough money for an apartment or to buy a Honda.

Bottom line is, respect these players for the entertainment they provide us night in and night out, they earn every penny, especially in a city like Montreal!!!
I'm pretty sure that guy was just terribad with money
