I'm curious, how much do AHLers and ECHLers earn ? Do rookie two-way contracts have a minor-league cap ? And if so, how much is it ? 75K ? I remember that being the figure that was put into the contract the Flyers offered to Lindros, but I really have no idea if that's a standard salary for an AHLer.
AHLers seem to be very excited whenever they hear the hint of a rumour of a call-up, so I'm wondering what impact it has on their wallet.

such a Player Contract provide for minor league Compensation,
including any bonuses for games played, greater than 50% of the
