If Donskoi really wanted to come over, he should have been prepared to take less. Why would an NHL team make him potentially the highest paid player on the AHL team? It's about precedents. No prospect gets paid that much in the AHL. Why should he be special? I was hoping he'd sign, but it's not a big loss. He's not anything special.

Nothing new. I'm assuming at this point that he'll return for his junior year.
