That's right, Nodl's base salary was only 600k last year, so a QO of 660k. And the Kings negotiated a great contract with Schenn that actually has his base salary go down in year 3, but the bonuses go up. 900k, 900k, 810k which means his QO will be only 891k when his entry level deal expires. Not that I think/hope that number will even be a starting point when the time comes.
