Not that I think/hope that number will even be a starting point when the time comes.
Hopefully he will be playing at a level that he will be demanding a contract for more then his QO, otherwise ouch for the trade.

I personally loved JVR's bonuses. Sure he may have been 2nd overall, but the Flyers didn't give him anywhere near the potential bonus package most top picks get. Even Turris, who was picked next, had about 1 million more in bonuses in his contract. That means a lot for this upcoming season with no bonus cushion.
