James Hardy recently rejected a $20,000,000, five-year contract with the Vancouver Seals. The contract offer called for an immediate signing bonus of $5,000,000 and annual payments of $3,000,000. To sweeten the deal, the president of player personnel for the Seals has now offered a $22,000,000, five-year contract. This contract calls for annual increases and a balloon payment at the end of five years.

Year 2............. 3,100,000
Year 3............. 3,200,000
Year 4............. 3,300,000
Year 5............. 3,400,000
Year 5 balloon payment...... 6,000,000
Total .............. $22,000,000
