While I'm sure any player who has signed a contract with his NHL team would love to be paid that money when he's playing in the CHL, it simply doesn't work that way. The NHL money doesn't start until he plays with the NHL team that drafted him and stops the moment he is sent back to his CHL team. They aren't paid to play in the league.
