Most of the Pens entry level contracts have bonus clauses of 82 games played to bring them up to entry level max so the player will get the max signing bonus. But as soon as the the first NHL game is played their cap hit drops. For instance a player like Grant may have an NHL salary of 600,000 with a bonus of 275,000 if he plays all 82 games. As soon as that first NHL game is played, and he's not in it, his cap hit is lowered. I think all their entry level contracts are like that except Tangrady, who's contract was given out by the some other team and Letangs.
