1976-77 $75,000 $340,880
Held out for 2 months after training camp, taking an accounting job in Winnipeg, wanting the Philadelphia Flyers to renegotiate his $75,000/year contract up to at least $100,000 given the high number of games he had played the previous season. Eventually came back and it is unclear if, and how, his contract was renegotiated but in 1977-78, he was earning $95,000.
