Machacek's RFA. Don't know what the Jets plan to do yet. He only makes 70K or so in the AHL.

Gagnon is on a one-way, but he was signed under a different contract for much of the year so he likely did not make even half that this season.

But these guys earned their money. They got good contracts since they had proven their worth in previous years, let's not go jumping the gun. Hell Machacek could have made 4-5 times as much if he had signed in Europe this year, but he choose to return to St. John's. Gagnon had a good track record in AHL before this year, it's odd that he cannot even play at AHL level anymore, I mean the one-way contract was stupid but oh well, it's not his fault he got offered that much.

Bothers me how people can blame Gagnon for taking the best contract he was offered, just like Hainsey, they didn't pay themselves, they took the offer they got. If anybody you should direct your anger at Heisinger or rather Chevy if you are really that upset about what they are making. TBH, for AHL it does matter even slightly what they are making, there's no cap...
