I have a very sneaky suspicion that the CBA is going to remain roughly the same when rehashed, particularly where bonuses and cap hits regarding ELCs are concerned.

That means we get the bonus cushion back after this season, which applies to Schenn, Couturier, and Bob next year.

So yeah, all their cap hits will be that low because when you take away their bonuses, that's how much they signed contracts for. All of those contracts were rookie max contracts when they were signed.

Also, the only thing that may prevent us from offseason cap spending is Pronger's contract.
