Larsson signed a two-way deal ($925,000 rookie maximum, $70,000 AHL) with NO performance bonuses because, well, the Devils try to discourage players from concentrating on individual performance. (Cough, Kovalchuk, $6.66 million, cough.) The kid bought that "take one for the team" crap from Lou-cifer even though he was taken 4th overall, way higher than where the Devils have usually picked.
Stromer should've signed before Larsson. Garth now can offer a two-way deal for $825K with no bonuses and tell the kid sorry, you were taken 5th. (Just kidding.)
