The Wings have had plenty of free agent signings over the years, including Stephen Weiss this summer. I'm sure for the kind of money he's being paid Weiss will find a beautiful place to live in the Detroit area.
It's not like Hank lives (or probably has ever stepped foot in) the worst areas of New York...Hunts Point, Bed-Stuy, etc. His salary affords him a posh place to live, just like it would in any other city.
Bed-Stuy? A bad area? Houses have sold there for over $2 million this year. But, over all I agree with you--where a player plays is secondary to the team he's on.
