As a Restricted Free Agent, he held out until February 1998 when he received a six-year contract offer from the Carolina Hurricanes for $38M: $2M yearly salary with full salary for 1997-98 even if he held out most of the season, plus $14M in signing bonus and another $12M bonus to be paid gradually over 6 years or in full, all at once, if the team reached the 1997-98 conference finals. Being last in the Northeast Division the Hurricanes had little risk of having to pay the $12M bonus immediately but the Red Wings were second best in the NHL and were likely to have to pay the whole bonus immediately if they matched the offer. Ultimately, the Detroit Red Wings matched the offer and had to pay Fedorov $28M within only a few months.
