Is there any limit to this? Could the Preds trade Zids, Sully and Arnott and then give Gelinas a variety of bonuses. I foresee the following bonuses:

League MVP 4M
More dives than Tootoo $1.4M
More puck possession time than Erat $800K
Hold Patrick Marleau to less than 5 goals in a playoff series $900K
Get Radulov to not celebrate after scoring a goal $1.5M
Break the jaw of Chris Pronger $600k
Throw you stick further into the crowd than Hartnell's record toss $200k
Find Barry's neck $3M
Total est. year end payment= 0
