    If it was just about the money, they wouldn't care enough to be unhappy. A competitor wants to compete in those big moments. I'm quite certain he wasn't thinking about his salary when he was taken out of the game. Pretty silly way to think. In addition, cooler kicking, helmet throwing, and other attitudes were just as bad in the 50's as they are today. Mickey Mantle wanted to quit baseball after he was sent down to the minors. All those guys were BOMBED every night of the week. No one talked about at the time because there were no cameras, phones, and social media hovering over athletes 24/7. Reggie Jackson was a huge asshole too. The list goes on and on.

    He was pissed because he wanted to stay in the game, perform, and help his team win. No admiration for that? Salary has nothing to do with it.

In the minds of most fans, salary has a lot to do with everything. Do you read the posts on this forum?
    What does the fans perception of a player's salary have to do with the mentality of a player who wants to compete and win?
    A guy is not on the mound of a game 6 thinking about his age or his paycheck. Sports are filled with emotion. Some show it in different ways than others. He's not the first, nor will he be the last pitcher to get upset about being taken out of a game when he was pitching well.

    I guess you feel the same when Lundqvist who is making a shit ton of money is pissed when he's pulled? The emotion they exhibit has nothing to do with money and all to do with pride, winning and being in the moment. On one hand you will complain that a player doesn't care and just collecting a paycheck and on the other, you will complain that he should just shut up, not show emotion and be thankful he's getting paid.

    Pissed when he gets pulled? I don't know you that well but I'm sure you've seen his 1st period death stares when a puck goes in off a skate.

    Couldíve sworn Iíve heard Lundqvist call out the team in front of him once or twice before. But yes, you can end the discussion as it is another form of waving the white flag

    When a goalie is pulled it's almost always due to a poor performance. You can't say the same for a pitching change.
