However, his major doesn't make him a guru on how to negotiate but if I had to choose players that I'm certain can understand the economics and the numbers without someone explaining it to him, George Parros would be the only name I could come up with.
Well, Mathieu Darche has a Commerce degree in Marketing and International Business (per Wiki) from McGill, and he actually won the CIS’s Outsatnding Student-Athlete award. So I’d imagine he’s fairly knowledgeable.
