Which is exactly what the owners do when they buy a team: it's a conscious decision to pursue a career path. If Molson hadn't risked his 140 million on the Habs+Bell Center he would have risked it on something else: treasury bills, real estate, buying up more Molson-Coors stock, gold bullion, etc.

There are 29 owners investing their money, just as thousands of young potential players invest their time. Time and money are equivalent.
