$1 million tax free vs $65,000 maximum if he is in the AHL...

What took Omark so long to make that decision................

If he's successful, he'll soon be making a lot more than $1.8 million or whatever he'll be getting in Russia.

If not, the KHL will likely be waiting to throw money at him when he's done.

It's obviously all about the money with him, and that's the disappointing part, especially when he says the NHL is his "dream".
If he fails in the NHL, he has lost his negotiating power - the KHL will no longer be there...

And why shouldn't it be about the money?

Katz's text message of "MacTavish isn't going anywhere" was the final straw.... Maybe it was not about the money.....

Is this where I am supposed to start talking about Mikhnov........
