and hence the reason why bonus' are a MAJOR persuasive device in the NFL.

100% correct, teams can offer a bonus to entice players. It happens in the NFL.

difference is, in the NFL you can also cut a player and lessen the cap impact if he doesnt hold up his end of the bargain. the NHLPA wants nothign to do with that, which may put half of its highest paid players out of a job.
