Good to see these kids taking the lower pay for the team. It would have not looked good had Clarke rolled the dice by taking the stance that he did and having those 2 kids refuse to sign. These kids want the chance to win now and for many years to come instead of refusing to sign, going into the draft and playing for a struggling team but getting the money. Im sure Ovechkin and Malkin sure cant be happy right now as the Flyers have set the benchmark by not including those performance bonuses.
I dont think this is going to affect Crosby thou. I think the Pens are going to give him the max allowable with the performance bonuses included.
