Compensation answer

The answer to the Marc Crawford $600,000 question is exactly as a couple readers posted. There was a payment attached to Crawford’s option year (which would have been the 2009-10 season), and Crawford’s contract with the Stars should eliminate the Kings’ obligation to make that payment. So the Kings don’t really “get back” $600,000, which was how it was initially worded to me. They actually “save” $600,000, which makes much more sense.
