I'm not too concerned about it, but wouldn't you be a little pissed if you were Schenn? Homer just took over a million dollars out of his pocket on what is essentially a technicality. I guess that's why it's called a bonus, but my guess is Schenn was expecting to make the team so he probably assumed he would be getting it.
Unless Schenn expected to play 25 minutes a night then no, he was never ever going to reach that total. Richards and Carter didn't make 25 minutes a night last year. The only effect this has on Schenn is that he misses the opening night game.

What do you think he cares more about, missing that or helping his cause to stay with the big leagues with half a salary cap hit.
