I wouldn't mind seeing the bonuses thrown out the window in favor of a performance based contract in the first place. Make all the contracts the standard minimum salary for the league per year, then tailor each contract in ways that every player can contribute to their team and get compensation for that.

Scoring are not the only stats, and while stats can be very subjective, there are a number of ways that you can manage performance based contracts.

Make the players earn their salaries, it makes the most sense. It'd also create a better balance for players on teams, because you might be able to make more on a team like Atlanta where you would be the #2 LW with PP time than you would be able to make on Detroit as the #3 LW with no PP time. Just an example.

Then the only caps you have to worry about are the individual caps for the performance qualifiers. Let the owners pay for their success, because they yield a profit from it.
