. If you give them 10 million each and they then sign much smaller deals is that legal? I mean if I am Wings right now I refuse to be cap compliant if they strike out on Doan and Semin just not interested in everything out there. It would be funny to watch the one team that voted against the cap for it limiting spending be the first to say well we didn't hit the floor, sorry we would rather do that than overpay marginal talent.
The league did not change the rules regarding signing bonuses, to help out the NYI.
The cba allowed teams to count Entry Level Contract bonuses and over age 35 bonuses,against he cap.
