If the agreement is the same as the one last year with TB. Then the Ducks will be paying the players salaries whether they play NHL or AHL. The only thing that really changes is the AHL salaries are much lower cost to the owners. AHL contracts are normally anywhere from 65K to 105K for younger players. AHL veterans can sometimes pull down double that. Last years NHL minimum was 525K.

The lockout sux's for NHL fans, but it is a boon for us AHL fans. Looking forward to seeing who is in an Admirals sweater. At least for the beginning of the season.
