Nobody does that though.
like I said in the post before in soccer its an honour to play for your countryand paid a lot more money injuries or not, these players are only 18 years old they are still juniors!

raise draft age to 19 or 20 end of problem! I hope those greedy NHL players don,t seattle till next year!
