And for him to make the $850K of type A bonus's, he's got to be a quality scoring line player (20g, 35a, 60points, top 3 on the team in in +/-, etc).

Add in it's a 2 way deal. If Bozak can't make the roster, he's making something like $70K in the AHL.

I'm not a huge Burke fan, but both of these have been good deals. TOR has plenty of cash if these guys pan out, and if not it doesn't cost them anything but cash. I would avoid Gilroy if it takes a one way deal - but that's just me.
Correct me if I'm wrong,but doesn't bonus money count towards a team's cap?

And whether the kid can reach those bonuses doesn't change the fact, that few other teams would have the cap space or team budget to toss that kind of offer on the table.
