You defer up to 7.5% in bonuses to the following season. If the bonuses are reached and the team doesn't have enough space,they can defer them to the next year.
If the Rangers do hopefully sign Schultz and they give him the MAX bonuses
$64.3M cap. 7.5%. $4,822,500. Rangers could defer almost of the bonuses if they are all reached but the Rangers usually leave space to absorb the bonuses in the cap. That's assuming the entire season is played in 12-13.
