I don't agree with your big boy theory. There have not been any contracts like Weber's until July 4. These bonuses are the issue and they haven't been up front in the other contracts (except Suter and Parise) and they haven't paid out that much money in one calendar year without a CBA.

To me standing up and being one of the big boys means you're willing to pay top dollar for talent. The Preds have shown that they are willing to do that. It's this unusual cash structure that is the problem not the contract size.
