He'll have incentives that will be attainable, but he'll have to have a tremendous season to reach 3 mil. Now this year his cap hit would have assumed that he hit all of his bonuses and thus he would have carried a 3 + mil cap hit all year long. Next year, with the next CBA opt out being 2 years away, the cap hits from players with incentives will go back to being base salaries. As a result, JVR will carry a 950 K cap hit. If he reaches incentives and those incentives put the Flyers over the cap then that will count against the following year, but I doubt the Flyers will plan for that.
