Look at it broader scope.

Hockey players have a limited window in which to make their living. While they are making millions, eventually their career will end.. whether due to injuries, or simply old age, or teams no longer being interested in their services.

A player has to do what is best for him and his family. Plain and simple.

Larger markets offer more than just the contract, there's more exposure which leads to advertising deals and etc. Again, maximizing their window of opportunity to make their living.

Nashville is a hockey retirement home. Sam at OTF has a post about how Nashville needs to stop advertising Brentwood, and start showcasing what's on Broadway instead.
