If the players play for the love of the game during this part of the season, then there should not be any sort of money talks involved either.

What would you think of this idea? I think its pretty good. but of course, I know that most fans and players would rather not wear them at any time.

They already make enough money as it is. Why give them more ideas? I don't want ads on the jerseys on any player. One little Nike sign or Adidas sign is fine. Any more - hell no as DKlaker said!

Also, I'm not sure what you're saying about not getting paid a salary in playoff. Players get extra salary bonuses for playing in playoffs - most of them have it within their contracts. (Guaranteed vs non-guaranteed portions of contracts, etc).. + playing well in playoffs = better and bigger contract deals down the road.
