a top 10 gets a lot more in remuneration then does any body picked below them
RASK WANTED TOP 10 money, RASK WAS NOT A TOP 10 PICK
even after he was traded he played hardball with the B's and did not sign a contract until May 5 2007 a contract
that was worth
up to $2,350,000
, which in 2007 was TOP 10 money, the B's had until June to sign him and so folded rather then let him go back into the draft. By comparison the overall #1 pick Paddy Kane received a contract
worth up to $2.85m
by comparison the 22nd pick(which was Rask's slotting) Max Pacioretty wasn't signed until the following year and received an NHL contract
worth up to 910k.
needless to say the Leafs were not going to pay this guy any more then they gave to Justin Pogge which was a contract worth up to 683k
So what your saying is JFJ traded him over a 170 000 in gaurenteed NHL salary and bonus money he had little chance of earning . If you're right he's a bigger idiot than i thought .
Also why wouldn't he expect to be paid more than a 3rd rounder like Pogge ?
