It's All About The Benjamins
KKFN (AM950 “The Fan”) in Denver is reporting that, in the event of a lockout in 2004, both Joe Sakic and Rob Blake will still receive paychecks in excess of two million dollars apiece.
Apparently, both players have clauses written into their contracts guaranteeing that they will still receive pro-rated signing bonuses and payments of that ilk, even in the event of a work stoppage.
Makes you wonder how many other agents thought that far ahead, eh?
