Its not as if Schenn and Couterier are gonna be hitting those hard to reach bonus marks (and if they do, all the better, I'll take a hart trophy from either of them!).

Just sayin its even more affordable with the bonus cushion in place...
Of course it would be more affordable, its a good point... but you cant plan for that. That would be like me guying a house based on a raise I MIGHT get next summer.
