BREAKING - Gudas Reveals Why Nobody Wants To Play For The Maple Leafs

Published August 8, 2023 at 3:12 PM

Radko Gudas's unexpected decision to join the Anaheim Ducks instead of Canadian contenders like the Maple Leafs, Flames, and Oilers stemmed from a blend of key factors.

Notably, Gudas openly expressed his reservations about Canada due to the media spotlight and the country's high taxation rates for high earners, leading him to favor locales such as California.

Canada begins with taxes exceeding fifty percent. It's not much different in California, which holds thirteen percent higher taxes than Florida,
Gudas remarked.

He also pointed to his affinity for the role and climate in Anaheim. This choice underscores how both financial and non-hockey considerations increasingly shape players' choices, potentially influencing their inclination to move to Canada.

When choosing between Calgary, Edmonton, and a warmer destination like Anaheim, the latter held greater appeal. It wasn't just about the weather; it encompassed the role within the team, their expectations of me, and, naturally, the financial aspect,
Gudas elaborated.
