QOs for players that made $900,000 would be 105% of their salary.. so his would have been $945,000. The contract he signed was a bit over his QO
And there's always the possibility of holding out for offer sheets, although Lapierre probably wasn't going to receive any.
Anyways, my point was I'm happy he's here for two years at a reasonable price and I'm fine losing Higgins and Torres because I think they're replaceable for the prices they're likely seeking.
