At next summer:

Hi, Kenny here. What would you like if I double yor salary from 2.25 to 4.5 million, a four year deal?

Jimmy Howard: "That's great. Where do I sign?"

"Hi, Kenny here. What would you like if I double your salary from 1.35 mil to 2.7 million, a three-year deal?"

Damien Brunner: "That's great. Where do I sign?"

"Hi, Kenny here. What would you like, if I give you a 50% raise from 3 million to 4.5 million, a five-year-deal?"

Valtteri Filppula: "That's great. Where do I sign?"

Three years ago (at summer 2009)...

"Hi, Kenny here. What would you like, if I double your salary from 1 million to 2 million, three year deal?"

Jiri Hudler: "No I don't think so, I'll go to abritrator."

Arbitrator gives him 2.875 figure.

Ken Holland: "Okay, now we have a deal. It's harsh, but we'll take it."

Jiri Hudler: "Sorry but I'm going to bolt to Russia, they are offering me 5 freaking millions per year. I'm really sorry about this."

Ken Holland: "I understand. You do what's best for you (you greedy little son of a *****...)."

Jiri Hudler: "Thanks Kenny."

***

One year after (summer of 2010) Hudler comes back, because Dynamo Moscow has some financial troubles.

At summer of 2011...

"Hi, Kenny here. What would you like, if I over trible your salary from 900k to 3.25 million, a three year deal?"

Jonathan Ericsson: "That's great. Where do I sign?"

***

At summer of 2012...

"Hi, Kenny here. What would you like, if I double your salary from 900k to 2.2 million, a four year deal?"

Darren Helm: "That's great. Where do I sign?"

Hudler has also played for two seasons and his contract ends.

"Hi, Kenny here. What would you like if I give you a 20% raise for your current salary, a three-year deal? 20% only, because the arbitrator gave a little bit too high figure in my mind on that day but we lived with that then. You got also those extra 5 million tax free from Russia, so you shouldn't be hoarding so much after money, your life is pretty much secured already, isn't it?"

Jiri Hudler: "No, I think I'm going to hit the free agency. Sorry again."

Ken Holland: *shuts the phone*
