Jackets. If I'm being paid 1mil/year by my favorite team, I'm probably a goon or a back up goalie... there's no pride in that . Might as well make more than triple the salary in Columbus and perhaps get more playing time.
In this game am I a superstar, as good as I am right now or would I be an average hockey player? If i was average/superstar player than I would definitely play for my favorite team. Winning the cup with your team is something no amount of money can buy+ a million dollars is good. However if I was terrible then I'll take the 3.5 mill and go with Columbus no need to make my team worse.
