Hope that clears things up. You can read indivdual salaries (both AHL and NHL) at http://www.capgeek.com/charts.php?Team=17
I am pretty sure I read somewhere that Moller insisted on a 1-way deal a la Zeiler. He didn't want to play another year for 50-60k when there were better opportunities overseas to make some more cash.
