[QUOTE]Okay, Nite, here you go. Add this up for Seguin and tell me that he made $3.5M! (thanks to Capgeek) Schedule A 1) Ice time (aggregate or per game, minimum of 42 GP). Forwards must be in the top six, and defenseman in the top four, for this bonus to be achieved. 2) Goals, assists, and points. Each category is separate, meaning a player could hit one mark and receive a bonus (hitting all three would result in a higher bonus payout). Forwards need 20 G, 35 A, and/or 60 PTS for this bonus to be achieved, while defenseman need 10 G, 25 A, and/or 40 PTS. 3) Points per game (minimum of 42 GP). 0.73 PTS/GP for forwards, and 0.49 PTS/GP for defenseman. 4) Plus/Minus (minimum of 42 GP). Forwards must be in the top three amongst forwards, and defenseman must be in the top three amongst defenseman, for this bonus to be achieved. 5) All-Rookie Team, and NHL All Star Game. Players selected to the All-Rookie Team, All-Star Game, or those being named the All-Star Game MVP will earn bonuses. Schedule B 1) Hart, Norris, Selke, Rocket Richard, and Vezina.

I didn't read the fine print of TS contract. The # that is shown as a 3.5 cap hit! If he didn't make that? That's great & wonderful. That 1 statement of my arguement is just that. All I'm saying as an individual B's fan what I would; or would not be happy with. BM making 4mill/yr is WAY too much. There's a broad range as to what he'll make. Whether or not I agree is depending on what he gets. There's some on here that say he deserves the 4! I say NO WAY! There's some that say he deserves only 2/yr. I wouldn't complain about that; but I would think that BM better change agents. My idea is to come to a place where both parties would/could be satisfied! If they were to give the guy only 4 in his 1st yr. I wouldn't have a beef. Do I agree completlely? No; but I can see that IF the proceedings were at a stalemate & PC is balking at the front loaded part & 4 is the mark where both parties would agree to it. I'd say yes. If PC is saying 3 & the agent is saying 5. I think 4 is a decent compromise.
There's a ton of BM that I don't like & if ANY of the non-hockey related issues is true. That'll be more for me to dislike; but if he can continue to play his game without the stupid antics & score huge goals? Where do I sign! Just not at 4 per yr! Not yet!!
