If YOU could play anywhere, where would it be?

65 posts in this topic

Considering all 30 teams in the league, or even European hockey, where would you like to play if you were an NHL player? Assuming you had a million dollar contract; and why?

I think I would pick Nashville; where half a million buys a mansion on acres; nobody knows me; and I have beautiful weather and awesome city. Plus I would only pay 10 percent tax compared to Canada.

I wonder what age or place in life "real" NHL players make this decision. It makes me wonder why Garrison and Hamhuis chose to come here; to be close to family, I guess. If I were those guys I would have stayed in the city I was. How the hell does Detroit keep re-signing players I don't know.

Maybe Vancouver is a better place to live when you make a million a year as opposed to 80,000. But looking at the bigger picture; there are alot of good things to life in smaller markets down south, too.

I wonder if we will ever see more freedom in the next CBA for players to move around. If it were me starting my career, I would definately hope to play 4 years in college hockey, then a couple in Europe, before making the NHL. I bet Mike Sillinger and his 17 teams he loved travel, too.

Who likes my cool story.

Garrison and Hamhuis make a lot more than a million dollars a year. Hence why they don't have to worry about home prices. Or perhaps they don't even want a mansion.

I'd play here for sure. A dream come true.

Definitely a waterfront city, but perhaps also somewhere that gets a proper summer. I love Vancouver to pieces, but the long, wet Springs and Autumns are starting to wear on me. If 30 teams were offering me big dollars for my world-class ability to shoot the puck around the boards in a sudden panic, I might choose LA.

No doubt Vancouver, although I would not be adverse to playing in Montreal, NYC, and California.

I want to say Vancouver but I don't know if I could put up with all the idiots.

Maybe for the Avs. I like the colder climate anyway.

Vancouver because you can never replace the oppty to play at home in front of your friends and family. Others would be:

New York (Rangers), to live in Manhattan as an athlete is incredible I'm sure

LA - weather

Montreal

I would probably go with Ottawa. It's close to some of my immediate family, they have great summers, it's a pretty nice city, and the eastern travel is less time consuming.

It depends.

I would want to finish my career in Vancouver (probably).

But personally I like to travel and live in different places for extended periods of time.

New York, Montreal,

or if I don't like playing in a hockey-mad city...

something like

San Jose, Anaheim, Tampa Bay

Columbus Blue Jackets, I could play horribly and no one would be there to se me embaress myself and the game of hockey. And with Blue Jackets as surronding i wouldn't even look that bad, i would just melt in.

Perfect!
