Here's Trotter's CapGeek page: http://capgeek.com/players/display.php?id=97

His AHL salary is 65K... His NHL salary is $687,500. If he only plays in the AHL, he'll only get the 65K. In the KHL he's guaranteed $250,000, which is obviously a huge raise from what he'd make in the AHL.
It's also a better league than the AHL, so if he does well in the K, he could be rewarded with a nice contract there, or an NHL one.
