You act like it's some kind of luxury that they have to move overseas to continue their career. Not to mention the fact that most players may not even be able to find jobs overseas. Just look at the number of players that struggled to this year. We've heard the stories about Alexander Semin essentially playing for free, same for Rinne, etc.
I'm sure NHLers could find work in their own cities. It may not pay six or seven figures....
