Anyways, I don't expect it to cause alot of problems because he likely won't earn up to the 3.775, but it is something interesting to consider on how this may affect the locker room.
The more Warrener speaks the more I think he suffered serious concussions and is out of touch with reality.

The guy is completely out to lunch. Its funny I used to love the guy when he played and defended him tooth and nail, but now he is a ****ing moron and just needs to shut up already and do some god damn research.

Its an ELC, all the money is in bonuses and if Capgeek is correct (and they usually are) the bonuses are for major awards like the Hart, Conn Smythe, Selke and accomplishments like 1st or 2nd team all-star and top 10 in league scoring. Here is a quote from teh trade board
