Draft position

O'Brien is still in his rookie contract, his salary is higher because of draft position. O'Brien drafted in 6th round #192 - rookie contract $512,000 Craig drafted in 8th round #255 - rookie contract minimum $450,000 IMO Craig signed his QO for probably one year now because he knows with an opportunity for more ice time and the chance to play an entire season, his stats could be greatly increased and he could negotiate a much bigger payday next summer.
