Hockey players don't blow their money like other sports stars do. They are a lot smarter with it.
PK has enough charisma and talent and brains to also do well after hockey that he won't need his hockey money, he will still earn money.
You should tell your boss that you want a 25% paycut, so that he can hire other people and you'll have a better time at the office, I bet you have more than what you "need"
There's no reason for Subban to take a hometown discount. He made $800,000 his first two years. He then made ~2.9 million in the latter two years, even though he was worth ~5.9 million. Bergevin nickeled and dimed him. The Habs have already gotten a discount.
The difference between market value for Subban (8 years, 8 million, 64 million total) and a hometown discount (6 years, 6.5 million, 39 million) is a ridiculous 25 million, or 12.5 million after taxes. If he throws that away to be a nice guy, then he's an idiot. Money is good to have in this dog-eat-dog world and you can never have too much. It's not up to you to decide how much Subban "needs".
