I remember Detroit has to pay Fedorov 14 millions one year because to keep him with the Wings, they had to equal NYI tricky offer that states if they (NYI) wins the cup, they will give him owe him 14 millions the following season. Detroit had to equalize the offer and they did win the Cup that year and Fedorov ending up with a 14 millions $$$ season. Not sure about the facts tho, but it was something like that.
It was Carolina, not the Islanders that tabled the stacked offer to Fedorov. The Canes owner, Peter Karamanos, is a Detroit business man so he targeted Fedorov to stick it to his rival Mike Illitch.
Also, this year, when the Canes won, Karamanos hung an enormous banner of his office tower in downtown Detroit that read "Congratulations Carolina Hurricanes Stanley Cup Champions"
