well, you wanted to know, theyre in the post gazette today.

here's the part in particluar you will want to read:

"It's exactly the DiPietro deal," Patrick said. "They wanted a lot more than that, but we settled on the DiPietro deal."

In his rookie season, Fleury will be able to earn $400,000 for each of these statistical milestones: 20 victories, 3.25 goals-against average, .890 save percentage, 1,800 minutes-played, four shutouts and a top-three finish in rookie of the year voting.

What's more, the bonus becomes a flat $4 million if he reaches just two of those six as a rookie.

In the second year, Fleury would have to attain three to get the $4 million, and he would need four to do it in the final season. In years two and three of the contract, the rookie of the year bonus morphs into one based on a top-10 finish in a statistical comparison of all NHL goalies.
