What an epic tragedy!

So much for playing "for the love of the game".

According to the Montreal Gazette, forward Erik Cole told the media on Friday that his unhappiness with the new CBA and his family situation will force him to review whether or not he wants to keep playing after this season.

Basically, he loses a couple of hundred thousand (maybe), and so he is going to quit his $4.5 million a year job playing hockey over the absolute injustice of having to play hockey for $4+ million per year. Plus a pension. Good luck finding post retirement employment that will pay you the $8+ million you will lose by retiring. But what the heck - stamp your little feet, poke your lip out and cry like a baby. I am sure the fans in Montreal will feel so sorry for you. In fact, they might even set up a donation box at the arena to raise money for you, so you don't go hungry.

Poor little Erik Cole! How will he feed his family on only $4 million a year? Who'll think of the children?
