they took home approx 3.4m after taxes on a 6 mill income. so 750K is a big chunk of cash.
not that 2+ million is gonna make them hard off and lining up at the food bank to get some free bread. but still that is a huge amount to give away and says a lot about the people behind the talent.
these are two players i hope retire Canucks not because they are great players but because they are great people, the city of Vancouver can not chance losing these guys to Sweden we need to keep them in the community.
i am sure they will take a big pay cut esp if they have not won a cup i could see them sign for 3 years 3.5m per each just so we could start to build the future without sacrificing the present . ( would be more but the cap will limit there wage)
but i would also not complain if it was 4 years @ 6 mill per... i hope they stick around even if they win us a cup.
