What if the NHL had a "hard" salary cap, but with guaranteed bonuses to players for meeting certain team and individual metrics. Make this standard across the board. Make both the team and player metrics achievable to allow players the ability to achieve a larger salary.

Player A has a 4 million contract per season, but can make 1 million more if his team is over .500 and makes the playoffs, another 1 million if he ends up with 90 pts, etc.

What are the pluses and negatives to this type of a situation? This way a lot of the bonuses being paid will be to players on successful teams or good players on bad teams.
