The NHL has a min salary, so any low ball is not much lower than his 700k.
What they gave him is a choice to play a different role , he turned it down .
If the Habs really wanted him , there would be a one way deal offered like White.
Bergevin wasn't here to see much of Darche, BUT Mike Therrien watched a lot of Habs hockey ...
I think technically speaking, offering him a 2-way deal was the "lowball", not the monetary value. Pretty clear that Darche is more interested than a 1-way (or at least waiting to see if he can get one on July 1) than any dollar figure since, like you said, he's not going to get much more than the minimum or his previous contract. More power to him.
