Yup. And he wasn't offered the 10 year deal until his rights were traded to Buffalo. So it's disingenous to state that Gillis didn't offer him the 10 year deal - Gillis offered him a 5x4.6 year deal and Ehrhoff wanted 5x5.5.
The internal salary cap, and not being able to meet halfway, is one of the major reasons this team has been on such a downward spiral since.
A terrible decision, among the worst in Canuck history imo.
