    "- The entry-level system will limit those players to $850,000 a year in salary (which it was 10 years ago) with bonuses not as easily reachable as the previous deal. The maximum possible amount in bonuses is $4.5 million although it's unrealistic for almost anyone to reach all the lofty targets."


    So all the teams can have a maximum of 4.5 millions in bonus they can give to all their players, or PER individual???

    That is the maximum that any individual entry level contract player can reach (and perhaps any player).

    I may be wrong, but the point may be moot, as the top bonuses are going to be paid for being in the top 10 in production, etc.

    So unless your team has all top ten scorers on your team, and they're all under entry-level contracts, you're unlikely to be paying out massive performance bonuses to more than one or two players. More likely is there will be entire seasons where no entry-level contract player is in the top ten.

    Okay, okay, maybe Crosby, but the proof'll be in the pudding.
