Yup, at 650k. I heard another number, a fair bit higher, but on a two-way deal. Sounds to me like both sides wanted security and neither budged.

I am under appreciated. Thank you so much for acknowledging that. I toil away at these boards day and night, and does anyone ever even acknowledge it?

Your post really made my day. I am so indebted to you for raising my self-esteem to acceptable levels.

Uh...I am sorry, but I must tell you your avatar is really outdated.

Anyway, are we at 1,000 yet? This pathetic post will get us one closer to finally putting this thread to bed.

Can't really blame either side here. Soderberg got $3 years at just over $3 million total, one way with a $500,000 signing bonus, and Holloway outproduced him by 25 points over the last 2 seasons. The Kings aren't going to give him that.

The Bruins also apparently don't care about their cap and having so few players signed...

That's funny, because after I double checked the spelling in my post, I thought "He'll probably just razz me on my 2012 playoffs avatar."

Not really an avatar type. Only added one in the first place when Legionnaire was ill.

Based on more recent contracts for European players (Soderberg example already given) I under his push for more. That said, we also haven't heard what he was asking, but considering LA didn't tell him to go **** himself right away, I doubt the difference was huge. This may just boil down to the fact LA is ultra-tight cap wise and couldn't/wouldn't come up to whatever he's pulling in in Sweden.

Apparently not when he's likely making as much or more in Swededn. It's a potential to make millions for sure, but it's also a potential to get sent to the minors as well, and that could really hurt his next contract.

Maybe the hold up was the length of the contract as well? Throughout this thread we have all (me included) tossed out one year contract ideas, but maybe he was pushing for $650,000 on a two year deal and DL balked?

May not be just about the final dollar figure.

Sure you did. Account created after the Kings drafted him? check.
Posts about nothing but Bud Holloway for the better part of 6 years? check.
Posts about any thing else Kings related? 0.
Claiming multiple times to have some insider knowledge on Bud Holloway? check.
Bashing the Kings multiple times in the past for refusing to give him a one way contract? yep.

You clearly are just a Kings fan because they drafted Bud, or simply here to talk up Bud to all of us.
Either way your acts old and I'm frankly sick of it.

Oh man 4 more posts! I'm so excited to never talk about Holloway again!
