It's just weird.
I had this discussion about Lindholm and salary. Once Lindholm played 10 games in the AHL, then his ELC was fully initiated. So he's paid for the whole season. His option to be released to play in WJC doesn't stop his payment. I guess the only possibility there would be no payment would be due to him not returning and the Ducks' organization putting in a formal complaint. But with concussion, the medical staff with Anaheim would probably be of higher quality than down at Norfolk. Not only that, but there are more specialists in the OC and LA for concussions. So it was a great turn of fortunes that Lindholm is part of the parent team. I mean, he could have stayed with the Ducks anyhow by putting him on IR a la Vatanen.
