Not true. Florida only said that he would decide for himself. The decision has not been made.

It's been retracted. Check Russo's Twitter. They also retracted it on KFAN from what I hear.

Was anything common back in the 70's?

$$$$ or National Championship is the real decision. Much more difficult to make.

He'll make much less if he plays in the AHL, unless they give him a one-way contract, which I doubt.

$900,000 to play in NHL is a lot tougher decision than $100,000 or so to play in AHL.

No one but Brooks could pull that tie off. Not even Chuck Norris.

He will have an ELC, which I think can only be 2 way.

Don Cherry thinks that tie is child's play. ;)

Pintos, Vegas, Gremlins, Mavericks

And no one but Brooks could effectively argue for its aesthetic beauty.

Although I don't think it will happen...throw the potential for another glorious NHL lockout (http://www.forbes.com/sites/mikeozanian/2012/06/29/nhl-lockout-looming-as-owners-and-players-will-battle-over-lowering-salary-cap/) into the mix.

Wow... Parise and Suter to the Wild for a small fortune.

Year 1: $2 million base salary + $10 million signing bonus = $12 million
Year 2: $2 million base salary + $10 million signing bonus = $12 million
Year 3: $6 million base + $5 million signing bonus = $11 million
Years 4-8: $9 million base
Year 9: $8 million base
Year 10: $6 million base
Year 11: $2 million base
Years 12-13: $1 million base

That even got former Minnesota North Star Mike Modano tweeting: Can I come back and play in Minnesota too..? ‪https://twitter.com/9modano/status/220553111280951297
