3

August

It's been like pulling teeth trying to find out what the Tampa Bay Lightning gave Mattias Ohlund as a free agent, but the numbers have finally dribbled out. The total is $25.25 million over seven years and breaks down like this:

$4 million next season and 2010-11; $5.5 million in 2011-12; $5 million in 2012-13; $3.75 million in 2013-14; $2 million in 2014-15; and $1 million in 2015-16. That works out to a cap hit of $3.607 per season.

So, now that we know the contracts for all players under one-way deals, let's see how the Lightning's payroll breaks down. Remember, this is for players with one-way contracts only. All salaries are in millions.
