That was published Oct. 9th. The reporter probably didn't have the whole story at that point.

The important quote from a more recent article is this:
"The deal is for $750,000 this season, although Dupuis' three-week holdout cost him about $17,000. It will pay $775,000 next year and $1 million in 2005-06. It essentially was the same offer Dupuis rejected before training camp, except that package was for $650,000 in the first year and $875,000 in the second."
