The gap between NHL and AHL salaries is the real culprit.

I bet if instead of being practically all or nothing, with 65k in AHL and 650k in the NHL, it was 250k AHL 450k NHL, he'd (murphy) probably still be here.

I know that's not the rule. And I know why it shouldn't be. But a 1000% difference is enough that you're going to see people take the money, particularly early in their career. And it's hard to blame them.
