My only disagreement is that the CBA is a copout for the owners who agree to these incentives in the first place. That is another debate, but imho if Fleury was able to get $5 m based on the limited performance to date, the team needs new management with a brain. I would have thought for a rookie to get those sorts of numbers, the incentives would be season long and substantial.
