From everything I've read, Lawler voluntarily took a $35k haircut just to get out of Edmonton.  Guess he found out the grass isn't always greener.....

Yeah, but after taxes, it's more like a $23,500 haircut... :P

And with the playoff money he ll get here vs none in Edmonton, he?s ahead of the game


One question is how much signing bonus each contract included...  we know those are taxed far differently in the US.  The downside for teams is that there is no SMS relief on those funds in case of injury, a risk that definitely has to be taken into consideration after last year's injury.
