I agree with this. Too much money too early, and as free agents they fly the coop. Makes it hard for teams to reap the rewards of a good hockey program.

I think this is why teams like the Senators will pass on a primo hockey talent if they seem to have character issues. A player might milk the team for dollars and be a locker room problem, then leave while hitting their prime.
