Don't get me wrong. I think the team that offers the most money is going to get the player 9 out of 10 times.
That said, if all things are equal, I think a player chooses to play for an O6 team.
What I like about hockey, at least from my own perspective and opinion is that hockey players and fans care a great deal about the history of the game alot more than do players and fans of other sports.
But yes, a younger player is going to take the money. But if the money and opportunity are the same, they are going with O6.
I 100% believe that.
