Some of you might want to check this out:

Scroll down and click on the link to bonuses:

Which includes this:

SCHEDULE B BONUSES - INDIVIDUAL AWARDS

All players signed to an Entry-Level Contract is eligible for a bonus paid by the league in the amount shown below, even if the player's contract does not specify an award for any Exhibit 5 bonuses. Payments made by the league do not count against a Club's Upper Limit, but do count against the Players Share for the purpose of determining escrow.

If I'm reading that right, that's 2M$ in bonuses that don't count against the cap, and all ELC players are elibible. That means that CapGeek is wrong. Unless this site is wrong?

One other point I feel is getting muddled in this thread is that 25 yr olds (Gilroy,Volpatti) should never be compared with younger guys (Bozak, Oberg) because they don't have to sign an ELC.
