Hasek Agrees to Forego Salary: NHL goalie Dominik Hasek has proven that not all athletes are concerned about only money. The Red Wing player, who has been injured since January, has declined to accept any paychecks for the time he has been injured. Hasek, who is out for the rest of the season, will give up about $3 million.

In the wake of the Alex Rodriguez negotiations with the Red Sox, I wonder if the Major League Baseball players' union would allow a player to make a similar arrangement. You would hope yes, but then again, MLBPA rarely seems concerned with what is good for the game.
