This actually should alleviate some people's concerns over whom the Predators were going to have to trade to get to the cap floor, although as the article mentions...we still need to make a trade to get down to 23 players before the start of the season.
$1.6 million in bonuses. The Predators will clear the floor to start the season without a problem - and considering injuries will happen, they should be fine even if Gelinas misses some of those bonuses.
