Even though this seems like a silly area to negotiate on I would guess (yes just a guess) the Oil started out lower even on the AHL salary. To make it seem like they giving him concessions in the negotiations. I am sure they fully intended to at least offer the kid the 65k.
Dale, IMO the LAST place that they should've been looking to chince out on. They wouldn't guarantee him an NHL spot so all along there was a chance that he could end up in the AHL. At the very LEAST they should've compensated there to the max because of his gamble. I honestly don't see the harm in offering him the rookie max and AHL max in good faith and leave it at that. It may not have made a difference, but when you have a team with a Billionaire owner looking to chince you on thousands of dollars, that doesn't send a very good signal IMO.
