08:38 AM ET 10.15 | Calgary goaltender Jeff Glass, now playing in Siberia, offers an interesting tale from the KHL: "We played Omsk Avangard the other night, who is captained by Alexander Frolov, formerly of the L.A. Kings. ... Frolov was convinced he had scored and was insisting they go upstairs to review the play. I told him and the ref not to waste anyone's time, because 100% it was not in. He asked me how much I wanted to bet that it was a goal. Knowing that he probably uses a salary like mine as spare change, I didn't say much. He stuck out his hand and said '$100.' ... The play was reviewed and the call on the ice stood, no goal. No more than five minutes after the game their stick boy had 3,200 rubles, the equivalent of $100, delivered to our room."

Frolov still can't score, but at least he makes good on his bets.

So (3,200 rubles) a 1K bet you would need a wheelbarrow to deliver the dough.
