Nope

The CBA's provisions on two way contracts caps the AHL portion of it to something like $75,000. (the number could have gone up, I just remember this from a couple years ago when it was a trending topic)

That's why a lot of AHL vets give up on two way contracts so they can just make some money while still playing.

Unless this part of the CBA has changed, but as far as I know it hasn't.
The last I heard it was $100,000 on straight AHL only contracts.

As far as two way contracts I have no idea what the limit is. I know the Oilers paid Dean Arsene $170,000 and Chris Minard $260,000 on the AHL portion of their 2 way NHL deals.

The top AHL free agents these days command 2-300,000 range these days on the AHL portion of their deals.

There are supposedly guys playing for between 500k and 600k, as well as no cap.

There's got to be a way to swing this.

Pretty sure that is on special 1 way nhl contracts like the Moose have. I believe it's a special agreement the affiliate has with the parent club that they will pay the 1 way deals. I'm not sure if it's possible to sign an ahl deal with that type of salary.

And considering the oil run the Oklahoma City team there would probably be a way around it. Not that the oilers would do something like that. They aren't going to bend over backwards for Omark. If he doesn't improve the team they'll likely trade him or let him go back to russia.

I believe LaForge said it was 5 years initially, with another 5 year option after that. They're firmly entrenched there for a while, which will be good for both the organization and OKC. I like the fact that OKC has a great track record of supporting their hockey teams, something you wouldn't necessarily expect in a middle American city (no disrespect intended to the hockey fans there -- I'd just expect college sports / football to be the big draw).

Our ECHL affiliate, Stockton, also has some pretty nice attendance numbers in spite of a lousy team (you can ask Thresher to comment since he's there in Stockton and occasionally posts up in the Springfield thread). The fans there deserve better. Hopefully next year with some 'retooling' both minor league affiliates will reward the fans with some good hockey.
