If he signs same contract as Tatar (I presume he will, both were 2nd round picks) his siging bonus would be $90k and his AHL salary $65k. He would get $155k for sure.

If and when he gets a chance in NHL, his NHL salary would be 640k.

So if he'll get ~20 games in NHL and stays in AHL the rest of the season, he could get 25% of the NHL salary (160k), 75% of the AHL salary (48k) and that signing bonus (90k)

Total of $298k. That beats his Elitserien earnings pretty easily. It's not really a money thing. He will get his millions later.


For Marchenko, there could be a huge difference. He is much much more far away from NHL than Järnkrok and KHL can pay much more than SEL for him. I understand it better. But Marchenko had some willingness to come and is interested about English and American culture. I read something like that about his background. He is interested to come, not a shy typical Russian with language problem who doesn't wan't to leave his home-coutry, if good money and spot to play is available there.
