That would be GREAT if he did defer some of his money to help out his team and stay in the NHL. Would he defer money or just give it up?
Or use it to take some ownership like Mario did?
In any case, Morozov is the only one besides Mario that's even close to that, making something like $1.5 M in base salary. WIth a payroll below $22 M, there isn't much cutting the other players can do to help without serious percentage cuts to their salary.
And I believe the players offered to take a 10% pay cut across the board in one of the CBA negotiations, but the owners stuck to their "hard cap" guns and rejected it.
This is positve news. People don't want to talk about that
You hit it on the head...if this thread does get busy, it will be because of a spark due to a negative comment made by someone mistaking this for one of the eight or so negative pens threads started in the past few weeks....
As for the article, kudos to Fleury if he does wind up going through with this...it seems like he really wants to stay with Pens....obviously this is speculated and may never actually happen, but these are the type of articles I was hoping to hear concerning Kovy about a year back.....very classy gesture...
