An old friend takes a pay cut

By Jon

Our old friend Mike Ryan is in the news again, signing with the Carolina Hurricanes earlier today.

He was assigned to the AHL Albany River Rats, and according to the Albany Times-Union (since edited,) he’s taking a bit of a pay cut…

The contract calls for Ryan to make $475,000 at the NHL level and $75 in the AHL.

75 bucks– Finally someone is paying him what he’s worth (Sorry, MJ.)

    I AM SO GLAD YOU ARE SHARING MY EXCITEMENT!!!!!

    and actually I am thrilled about the $75!!! Given my track record of deadbeat boyfriends, he’s practically Donald Trump!!!

    I’m going to apologize in advance for the constant, obligatory, borderline frightening AHL updates I’m now forced to blog about for the rest of the season. You understand. It’s out of my hands now.

    Maybe I can sell him the Mike Ryan autographed stick I won.

    $75?!

    Best typo/forgotten 0’s EVER!

    I’ve got family in and around Albany that I visit on a regular basis… I should pay Mike Ryan and the River Rats (ewww, but at least they SUCK) a visit.
