The difference is, we have a lot more time to make money. Players, they have 20 years, at best, to do what they do. They need to make as much bank as possible, while they can.
I'm certainly disappointed, he have issues at center. But I wish Lehtera well. It ain't easy.
Another thing he gets to stay closer to his family and friends. I have zero issue with European players staying in Europe to play for more money. A professional athlete has a small window to make as much money as they can. They also are always one serious injury away from retirement. Good luck to him.
