Plus, players can't predict the future, so when they sign with a team, they can't know whether they're going to win the Cup anyway. That doesn't mean some teams don't have better outlooks in the near future, but the "road to the Cup" isn't linear, so, say, signing a hefty contract with Columbus isn't necessarily the wrong choice for a player to make.
So yeah, you just pulled that "most cup winning teams dont have overpaid players because they care about winning a cup and not about the money" out of your ass, didn't you?
doesnt matter, it's what i believe. believe whatever you want.
