It's definitely a lot of money, even considering tax is going to take away half of it. But you're risking your livelihood (chance of concussions), and a hockey player's career isn't very long. People can make 100k+ after taxes, and that's working until their late 60s. Hockey players play until their late 30s at best.
You take the extra 7.5 million to allow yourself and your family to live comfortably for the rest of your life, and possibly the rest of your kids' lives.

I honestly wouldn't care what team I played for. I'd make that team my new favorite team. Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady both wanted to play for the 49ers, but both made their respective cities their homes and are very successful and happy.
