With the new CBA, I don't think Vanek will have the ability to ask for bonuses. I think that is one thing that is gone.
It all depends on whether the rules in the new CBA apply to players drafted before the new CBA is written or not.

I've read things around here that in the past rookies have signed deals based on the CBA that is in place when they are drafted and not when they get around to signing their rookie contract.

If that is the case, then you can expect Vanek to hold out for as close to the current model rookie deal as he can get.
