Kronwall - a true winner!

Niklas Kronwall have not only won the WCH and the Olympics this year. He have taken the term "winner" to a new height, when he won a million on lottery yesterday. (Makes me think of Rod Steward and "Some guys have all the luck"... )

Haha, you have to wonder why a guy like him would even bother with lottery tickets.

Anyways you know what people generally do after winning the lottery... that's right, quit their jobs. Add another free agent defenceman to the Wings shopping list this offseason.

I hope you are right

Congratz to Kronwall, even though his current job pays very well. Maybe he give the money to charity, that would be a nice jester

Hey Nik, do you think you could pass some of that luck on to Pasha? He sure could use it.

Looks like Kronwall is the only one in the wings organization to profit from the early playoff loss.

Well Z, Sammy, and 'Stein also picked up gold at the WHCs, but yeah... aside from his pre-season mishap and the early playoff exit Kronner's year has been amazing!

He's not quitting his job... 1,000,000 kronor is only around 140,000 USD.

His agent probably stormed into the Swedish lottery office and called it an insult.

Perfect. A guy who makes about 100times (or is it 1000x ) what I do winning a lottery.

He only won a 1/4th of it. Here's the story from a Swedish poster from another forum.

Quote:
Kronwall entered a golf tournament held for sponsors and every group of four were awarded 18 scratch lottery tickets. The winner of each hole were supposed to get a ticket. Kronwalls group decided to share the tickets and sat down to scratch them. Kronwall found out that they had won and split $140 000 four ways. Someone said he looked slightly embarrassed, although happy and surprised at the same time. Kronwall commented that he has felt lucky lately.

Kronwalls share was $34,680 - I'm sure he will retire now when he never has to work ever again!!

I could put a good dent in my mortgage with that kind of folding cash.
