Millionaires signing in the ECHL just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Then to make matters worse the hundred plus guys who will never see the inside of an NHL dressing room again if this thing drags on for any length of time. Where are your PA brothers now, guys?

There is a lot of greed and its frankly disgusting to me.

Replace "foreign army" with sports team, and you have your modern professional athlete.
