Dane Byers Contract DetailsJune 10, 2010, by
Capgeek has the details on Dane Byers contract extension with the Rangers. Byers signed a one year, two-way contract. His AHL salary will be $90,000 (a $10,000 increase on last year), and his NHL salary will be $500,000, which is consistent with his salary last year. Byers will be a restricted free agent when the contract expires.
This deal surprises me a little, as I thought Byers would have pushed for a one-way deal to guarantee himself more money. As a RFA, he had very little negotiating power though.
