A little more on this ... Craig Ludwig was asking for a 50% raise,
from $300K to $450K or a trade to a US team for tax reasons (he is a
native of Wisconsin). Diduck is a good defensive player, but can
also play the point netting 11 goals and 21 assists; the Toronto Star
says that he'll be one of only two right-hand shooters on the point
(the other being Petr Svoboda).
