A fair contract. I am sure there are about 10-15 GM's in the league that are thinking of making some kind of offer that is similar to this if indeed Forsberg is pain free.

The upside of Forberg is so huge. Even if he only plays 15 games if he can be healthy in the playoffs he is still a very, very good player.
I'm fairly certain there are rules in the CBA that limit what type of bonuses can be offered... I don't think you can have multi-layered bonuses based on one criteria (games played). Though I could be wrong...?
