    You guys should maybe actually look at the tax brackets before commenting about US and Canadian taxes. The top federal tax bracket in Canada is 29% on income over $135,000. The top tax bracket in the US is 39.6% on income over $400,000.

    There’s also provincial/state income tax. Provinces that have hockey teams have top tax brackets between 10% and 15% generally on incomes over $100,000 (except Quebec which is insane at 24% on income over $100,000). I didn’t want to look up a dozen states so I just looked up two that have several hockey teams each – the top tax brackets in New York and California are about 10%.

    So if you’re playing hockey in Canada outside Montreal, you’re paying 39-44% on income over $135,000. In the US, you’re paying about 45% on income over $400,000, and about 50% on income over a million.

    I’d rather play in Canada, thanks.

    Just a thought, what Violette says is important here.We Canadians pay for all theses kids to play hockey in our leagues, a few make it and are drafted.Some to Canadian teams, yet when they become really good, they Shun their country and play for the Yanks. possibly taxes, a nicer climate and in many cities there, alot less media pressure. AllI know is if I grew crops ,planted the seends, harvested them, why the heck would I then give them all away.

    Of course, Nobody gets taxed more than we Canadians do, one of the major reasons Our teams can’t attract the better free agents, which is a big factor in why we havent had a Canadian based team with the Stanley Cup in 20 years.

    Kovalchuck’s 60 million over 4 years will be taxed at %13 in Russian. Much better then being taxed %50 on his 77 million over 12 years in the States, no ?

    The Americans are going to check the Sid line into the ground with Backes and the rest,score just enough and since Canada has goaltending issues.I am picking Sweden as a surpirse Gold Medal winner. Carey Price simply doesn’t belong in Sochi
