The gm's certainly know what they are doing when they set those low goals and if they see a player doing that poorly and the reason lies within their own fault then I believe they would take care of it. If it isn't, for example in Fluerys case where he is playing behind a horrible team then the goals are there to do what I implied they could. Help develope a young players confidence and give him obtainable goals to build from. Certainly, I feel that coaches and gms will do a better job at determining rather or not a player is doing well enough to earn his shot at the money or wether he isn't than a bunch of armchair gms like us are capable of.
I doubt it works that simply that you can just send him down. So he wont acheive his minutes component. He sure as hell will acheive the GAA & sv pctg criteria.
You might as well give the guy 5 mil base with no bonus in his 1st year no matter how he performs cause there is zero chance he cant make his bonus.
I dont have a problem with reasonably easily obtainable bonuses, but this is frankly stupid.
