This past summer, Jamie Lundmark agreed to a contract with the Calgary Flames, doubtlessly the only NHL team that had any interest in his services.

The minimal dollar amount was a calculated risk on Lundmark's part: it allowed him to avoid re-entry waivers due to a wrinkle in the current CBA. That meant, the Flames would have no barriers to calling him up if they needed him during the year. It also meant that if he floundered in the AHL or if the Flames decided not to summon him to the big leagues, he'd be making a relatively piddly amount on probably his last NA pro hockey contract.
