Last yr Hillen was one of the most sought after college free agents.

Hillen played the last 2-3 games of the season with the nyi,so this is his rookie season.He's making $875,000.I have never read anything about bonuses in Hillen's deal.

I don't buy that other teams were offering over $3m in bonus money to Bozak.I don't have a problem with how Burke and the Leafs use their cap space.I just find the idea that overpaying for a college ufa, makes Burke some sort of genius.
