The only contract that I'd compare with Fleury's is DiPietro's. (Thornton and the others had completely different bonus categories). Did Lehtonen get a similiar contract? He hasn't spent much time in the NHL with the Thrashers so maybe he is also effected. It seems pointless to have clauses in your contract which are strong deterents to you're playing in the NHL. I don't consider it cheap but prudent business to not want to pay a teenager $5 million a year for mediocre play. Even the NHLPA is ready to concede these model bonus contracts. My point was that the best deal is not necessarily the greediest one. If you're arguing with me then you must feel that greed should prevail.
