Dale, that is totally the wrong way to look at it. Lowe does not want to get bent over and railed like he's the new prison ***** for the 2nd time in contract negotiations by one mike comrie. Comrie had his turn 3 years ago and he took full advantage of it then/ Now, the tables have turned, and lowe is not going tp pay him that much based on principle, he's a first line center in his own mind and wants to be paid out the wazoo because of it. The reason lowe will not give him that $2 mil base and 4 million in bonuses is because if he did what would his next contract look like, especially if this one was only for 1 or 2 years? It would be ridiculous, he'd be asking for 6+ mil + bonuses.
If Comrie wants his 2mil + 4 in bonuses, i say, Mike thats fine, you can have them, but you only have one chance to hit it, and it is all or nothing...
Team makes 2nd round of playoffs (home games will off-set any bonuses.
things that will be completely out of reach unless he just lights it up and carries this team on his back to the 2nd round of the playoffs.
Edit: I can't believe i've been sucked into this comrie crap.
