Weinhandl - $900,000
Bergenheim - $1,185,000
It may just be the Isles have to pay him here or with Jokerit. This contract is not a standard deal there are agreements that do not allow him to play for Bridgeport. If the Isles can save the money maybe they send him back but I doubt it, the Isles had to know the ticket sales and the increases would keep some fans away and kept Bergenheim anyway. Weinhandl returning would be a different story but both are getting paid anyway.

As for the media, the Isles are barely getting game coverage, much less coverage on what's happening on things the die-hards follow. The Ct Post has better info than Newsday on these subjects.
