We have been filling out our roster this whole time without abusing the bonus cushion yet, why would you be concerned by it now? I don't think anyone really considered it as a good option.

If we do manage to keep everyone, then the one real concern I see is not having that 1-2mill in cap space to carry throughout the year. It can play a big part at the trade deadline, as you can see are able to significantly go over the cap limit at this time of the year.
