I'm not so sure about that. Spezza had a $4 million signing bonus on July 1st (and who knows if he has ones for other years).

Both of those are much bigger than any single bonus Hamhuis gets and I wouldn't be surprised if they had other years with bonuses as well. Because of that, I don't really think it's all that unprecedented.
