Tie Domi Begging for Votes

Is that really what it comes down to? You have a 10-year NHL career, you retire after earning nearly $15M, you enroll into some cheesy TV figure skating competition, and you beg for votes on Twitter and Facebook in exchange for autographed photos (click on screenshot below to enlarge and read)? Sad.

PS: Yes, using the words "NHL career" for Tie Domi is weird.

Gaborik: Wild False Advertising

After the past few seasons with Marian Gaborik barely playing half the games, the Minnesota Wild should have known better than to run ads touting his return with the Rangers. Next thing you know is that the day the Rangers are visiting the Wild, the following ad appears on the StarTribune.com website, right above a headline stating that... Gaborik won't play!

False advertising? Money back guaranteed or there's some small print somewhere?

Coffee or Tea - Caps' Mike Green Must Know

Washington Capitals' defenseman Mike Green is on Twitter. Who isn't, really? And not only does he feel the need to tell the world that he has a passion for coffee but he wants to know if you - yes, random you - prefer coffee or tea. We assume he cares for the answers he's receiving from adoring fans. If you're not on Twitter, you can presumably send him a postcard with your answer to Verizon Center, C/O: Green Life, 601 F Street, NW, Washington, DC 20004.


Aren't you glad we patrol Twitter for you?

Gretzky & Lemieux Born 10 Years Too Soon!

HockeyZonePlus.com has updated its unique NHL salary history database to include 2009-2010. It is interesting to note where Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux rank in the overall fortunes accumulated playing in the NHL: While Jaromir Jagr is still on top, with nearly $100M, Lemieux is 40th with $48,926,829 while Gretzky is 65th with $40,521,616. Talk about being born 10 years too soon! Not that it would change the lifestyle that much, mind you.

Overall, 30 players have accumulated more than $50M while 151 accumulated more than $25M (if Glen Wesley can make a comeback long enough to justify a $5,000 payckeck, that would make it 152.)

Sergei Fedorov has made $65,519,036 but apparently managed to "invest" and lose most of it.

The Small Print: Figures in US$. Salaries paid in Canadian currency by Canadian teams, in the early 90s, were converted to $US as per the January exchange rate of the given seasons. Some players have two-way contracts and have received lower salaries than those listed when playing in farm clubs. The listed salaries were gathered from different sources and while they closely reflect reality, they are not necessarily exact. Of course, that is from their NHL salaries only and it does not take into account any other revenue streams such as endorsements, summer jobs, business ventures, being a Mary Kay independent consultant to supplement revenues, etc. Base salaries are usually shown as bonuses are generally not made public. Totals do take into account the fact that players received only +/-58% of their salary during the 1994-95 season because of a strike (48 games played instead of 84). Some players possibly had contracts stipulating that they were paid despite a strike but we have no information in that regard. During the 2004-05 lockout, some players joined various teams in North America and Europe and were paid to do so. It is not included in the Grand Total because we have no information about the salaries they made in those leagues. Figures shown represent earnings; investment results may vary - ask Sergei Fedorov. Still reading? How is your 401k/RSSP doing?

May the Real Ron Hainsey Please Stand Up?

In a piece about Ron Hainsey, Chris Vivlamore, the sole journalist following the Atlanta Thrashers on a regular basis, portrays the defenseman as a great leader with a unique sense of humor. As per the excerpt below, you'd believe that he knew exactly when and how to transition to his current attitude and style:

With Hainsey’s brand of leadership, it is all about timing. With a joke, sure. But more important is knowing when the time is right for a player to speak up. Breaking into the NHL as a 21-year-old with the Montreal Canadiens, Hainsey knew, was not that time or place. Now as a veteran with the Thrashers, after three seasons in Columbus, it’s become a natural role for the 28-year-old.

“You’ve got to pay your dues a little bit before you are telling jokes on the ice or in the locker room or being a little more outgoing,” Hainsey said. “For a young player it, can be construed as overconfidence as opposed to just being yourself. ... We have the best job in the world so there is not a reason not to have a lot of fun with it.”

Interestingly enough, two days before that profile in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, François Gagnon, one of the many beat writers following the Montreal Canadiens, noted the following about Hainsey:

"He was given the 'Hollywood' nickname while playing for the Canadien. The first round pick (13th overall) had a superstar attitude while having a rough time making his mark in the NHL. He appears to now have the maturity that was lacking when he first stepped in the league..."

May the Real Ron Hainsey Please Stand Up?
