That seems like a lot of money for a mere CHL contract. I mean don't CHL players only get around $50 a week?
I just made it up... although I heard on a sports radio station (not sure if I heard correctly as I was working at the time) that this is not the first time for Sarnia. (if in fact they want financial compensation) but Sarnia received a sum of 26 thousand for a player to be released from his junior commitment. Don't remember the player's name, ot when it occurred. and am not even sure if that is accurate...again I wasn't listening too intently at the time.

if the 26 thousand is an accurate figure.... it's not what the player's value to Sarnia is.... it's the player's value to the team that wants to buy him out of his junior commitment. How much do they have and how much are they willing to pay.... that will ultimately decide what the compensation will be...
