Cristodero [url=http://www.sptimes.com/2005/09/27/Lightning/Lightning_ponders_19_.shtml]reports in today's Times Andy Rogers may be willing to settle for 600K per on his rookie contract in order to stay with the Lightning this year.[/url] If Rogers were to be sent back to junior he would only receive a couple hundred dollars stipend for meals. "Taking less" in this case involves making $5,487.80 a game. No one will ever accuse young Mr. Rogers of being dumb.
