Interesting. Sometimes forget that salaries were such, especially so if you were deep in the depth charts, that alternate forms of employment & options might be preferable and were for many. Particularly so if you either didnt want to go play in the States, be it in the NHL or elsewhere or perhaps were just starting a family. the alternatives far more attractive. Certainly a long-term position & security with Molsons wouldve been in that instance.
