The only part that would need to be negotiated is the performance bonuses, and that shouldn't be very hard. RB posted the likely numbers on page 9 of this thread.
Tim Erixon got $850,000 in performance bonuses. He was the 23rd pick in 09. Kreider was #19. Louie LeBlanc taken at #18 got $300,000 in bonuses. David Rundblad at #17 got $600,000 in bonuses. Nick Leddy at #16 got $325,000. Jacob Josefson taken at #20 didn't get any bonus money. Lou doesn't believe in bonus money. John Moore at #21 didn't get the max and just got $125,000 in bonus money. Jordan Schroeder at #22 got $125,000 in bonuses. Zach Kassian at #12 received no bonus money.

The Rangers were facing a tight deadline to get Erixon signed. They didn't do much negotiating with Jay Grossman. $900,000 MAX. $850,000 in performance bonuses. Kreider will probably get the same deal.

You would have to believe the Rangers and Kreider's advisor/agent Matt Keator have discussed the parameters of the SPC.
