first i'll say i completely agree that it was a smart decision to let ehrhoff go. short term, it's a loss, but longterm i think we'll be better off.

but wasn't there a report that what ehrhoff's agent asked from the canucks (which gillis wouldn't give and instead flipped his rights) was less years and less money overall than he got from buffalo? i don't have a link, but i remember a lot of discussion about this last summer.
