But this thread is about a guy just starting out who did choose one of the more expensive places?

Which Nik covered in his last paragraph. And, this guy who is just starting out has potential to earn nearly $4M a season on his current contract. We're not necessarily talking about a small fish here.

Who might not make that in his career.

Right, but in the cases of those guys you have to figure that the mentality of those players isn't that they're going to be on the low end of the NHL wage scale for ever. Someone like Jimmy Vesey probably thinks that wherever he goes to play he'll be signing a big money multi-year extension as a RFA or UFA which will make a 100k per year difference at the start of his career not a huge deal.

Younger players are the ones most likely to look at the lifestyle advantages in a NYC or LA as being worth a big chunk of their paychecks. If you're married with kids then having much better clubs or restaurants or being the centers of the world's entertainment industries are probably less of a big deal.

He certainly doesn't believe that, which is basically the point here. You're looking at a highly touted athlete in his early 20s. You think he's going to be making a decision based on the safe move, or that he's going to be extremely confident in his ability to earn a multi-million dollar contract in the near future?

Rent debate aside (Its a non issue for a Harvard grad guaranteed to earn close to $1M next year and possibly quite a bit more if he hits performance bonuses) he'll have plenty of friends in NYC.

I read somewhere that close to 40% of all Harvard grads go end up in the Big Apple right after they graduate.

That's a big piece of the Harvard grad pie, considering its just one city in all of the U.S.

Start spreading the news.
