Jbo, Lupul, Boychuck, Chimera, Bourque, Iginla(use to), Brodziak off the top of my head guys that spend most the summer here.
How much of Sheldon sourays money has stayed in Edmtonon, we are talking about 15 million or so. How much of whitneys money, 12 million or so is going to stay here? How much of hemsky money will stay here at 25 million or so? How about Katz himself with a residence in Vancouver.

Heck the best thing you can say about horcoff is he seems to be settled here with all his millions. At least until he retires at which time who knows.

The over all principle is that these guys make so much money from the community and teams they play for that in most cases and I would say this for all teams, the majority of the millions teams pay in salaries do not end up staying in the city they got paid in.
