*case in point:

guess it's a slow news day? or perhaps as Habs fans we've sunk low enough that we any kind of feel good story to brighten our otherwise somber moods
A 33$ lunch by yourself to the new guy is pretty generous (assuming base salary of 50k) :

$3,000/$4,500,000 = 0.00066666 * $50,000 = $33.33

But you are right, not news worthy unless it's Habs players
