Doesn't matter how much money you make, whether it's 10 million or 10 dollars, but if you choose to donate the money you have earned, you have the right to donate as much as you like, even if it isn't that significant when compared to others. It's still a donation, it's all good.

I would do that to if i made 5 million dollars a year. Nice gesture still , but just saying.........


This is absolutely correct.

Daniel & Henrik's $1.5M donation has basically given them immunity from this fanbase's vitriol. They really didn't do much at all in the SCF, and they also really didn't do much in the playoffs this year (like the whole team, but, still, they're the "leaders").

Who's the one that typically gets all the hate? ROBERTO LUONGO. Who is also the guy that hasn't publicly donated a significant amount like this? You guessed it - Roberto Luongo. Instead, you see Lou hawking poker websites, and things of that nature. Pretty sad. I always wondered why he just didn't donate a big sum of money, like Danny & Hank. Would've taken a lot of pressure off of him from this fanbase (rightfully so, IMO).

I can appreciate this POV. If you donate to a charity within a community it does send a strong message that you intend to be a part of that community. Though he may very well give lots to charities but just isn't as public about it.

A point per game isn't doing much? Now a .891 S% with 3.59 gaa could be construed as not doing much. Compare that to Schneiders .96 S% with a 1.31 gaa. Now NHL stars giving to charity certainly enhances a players image, but do you honestly believe CDC would suddenly love Raymond again if he donated some money?

Mason Raymond doesn't have a $64M contract in Luongo's case, or a $25M - $30M one in Hamhuis/Sedin's case. It's a completely different circumstance.

That being said, yes, I do think that it would give him a heck of a lot longer of a leash. Malhotra's been utterly useless since his eye injury (and it was a bad contract to begin with, quite honestly), but he's such a nice guy that he's still so revered by most Canuck fans. You wanna know who's going to be the next whipping boy around here? DAVID BOOTH. He's going to get totally skewered around here if he's not productive relative to his contract (which, IMO, is likely). That bear massacre over the summer was totally idiotic, as are his I'm-so-hard-done-by-feel-sorry-for-me biblical crap posted on Twitter, and people aren't going to forget about it. Watch and see.

I have never seen any one of the present owners present at a charity event ,giving of their time.


Ed Snider has his own charity and spends his own time with it.

Without Sedins this team is NOTHING. The Sedins didn't do nothing??? How about the awards they won? How about being PPG in the playoffs? You'll be crying once they retire and our team hits rock bottom, so just be glad we have superstars like Sedins.

Anyone who has one negative thing to say about this is just ridiculous. Any charitable donation is commendable and this is a fairly substantial one. I don't care how much hockey players make, there's nothing forcing them to do any of this and when they do, let's keep it positive.

Well done, Danny. The community thanks you for caring. :)

Dan Hamhuis I think often suffers from his own shy, humble personality. He's among the best shut down D-men in the league, he's a class act all the way, and he's from BC and plays amazingly for his home team. This guy is great to have here in Van and I think his charity work goes beyond "Going through the motions" from what I've seen of him.

Second highest +- for defensemen in the entire NHL while playing against the top lines on the opposition for top minutes every game, check. 37 points while being a "stay at home defenseman", check. Laying down awesome hip checks? Check. That's 4.5mil in the bank by today's market standards. That and his presence is great for Bieksa and allows him to play his style of game to his potential.

I totally agree, this guy is among the finest hockey players BC has produced in recent history and we're incredibly lucky to have him play for the home team.

Good on Hammer, gotta love when our better players emulate Linden. Garisson is showing to be cut from very similar cloth as well, so great pick up there.

Doesn't matter how much money you make, whether it's 10 million or 10 dollars, but if you choose to donate the money you have earned, you have the right to donate as much as you like, even if it isn't that significant when compared to others. It's still a donation, it's all good.


Money is money. 100K is a lot for anyone, especially who has time to post here. Not one poster here has ever donated that much. That i will guarantee. Unless some player is just messing with us for fun, which would make me laugh uncontrollably. No criticism as to how little or how much that is based on earnings can be accepted.

Great job Mr Hamhuis. A truely generous and giving sports figure and human being. Your name has been registered as "in the running" for jersey naming. Burrows underdog story still has you out worked but its getting closer. Keep it up.

These types of stories are what keep me interested.

I still stand by mark McGuire and his donation to children's charities in the St. Louis area when he signed the big deal. No matter what else surfaced.

Cheers

Ps. I also thought it was a poorly worded title. McDonald's definitely doesn't need the cash.

LOL @ people ranting at "only" 100,000.
As I recall, Hamhuis isn't even getting paid this year, yet he is still kind enough to donate a large sum of money to a great cause.
