Where do you think the money from your tickets and jersey's go?

Into the organization, fans don't directly pay a player. Regardless I could care less what a player does in some cheesy skills competition, he is paid to play hockey, score goals, play defense.

Its indirect but fans are still responsible for the economic well being of the team without fans you don't get corporate sponsors and no merch sales etc...etc...

I didnt want to sound like a ****** saying how we pay their salary but seriously. I think its reasonable to expect 15 seconds of skating from a guy. Everyone who went there paid to watch and if the guy cant put out that little an effort it shows a lack of character in the player.

Of course i dont think Jaybo was half assing it, just surprised by the slow time.

If you think Bouwmeester not putting 100% into it is bad, wait till I tell you that neither Kiprusoff nor Tanguay even attended.

EVEN WORSE HE IS NOT EARNING HIS SALARY

Due to his soft play, he needs to appeal to the fans more now than ever!!
