Numbers Don’t Add Up- Dafoe Leaves Russia

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,
One month into his tour, though, Dafoe found the one great difference in the Russian game that he couldn't tolerate. Unlike an NHL contract, with the dollars promised in print, and payable twice a month, he quickly found that the document he had in hand didn't mirror the figures on his paycheck. ''That's what it all came down to, really -- contract," he said. ''Mentally, I was all set. Before I left I said, 'OK, I'm going to be away from my family for X number of months, I can handle that. Then, 30 days in, come payday, they just decided to change it around."
