Either way, if RNH Schultz or Yakupov have good years and finish top 10 in goal assists or PPG then they could max out their contracts.
That's not really the concern though because if they do that then they have the bonus cushion. But the bonus cushion is only 7.5% of the cap which means the Oilers could go over that if all 3 realize their full contracts which means the rest of these players cap hits will go against the cap in 2013-14. Without looking at any other ELC contracts the Oilers might have on the roster next year that increases these 3 players from $925,000 cap hits to $2,192,500 cap hits.
RNH doesn't have a bonus in his contract for winning the Calder, no one does because its not allowed. RNH coming in second in calder voting cost him $62,500.
Ok so coming in first for voting for the Calder. Same difference and those category B bonuses are paid by the league/team. Apparently the team can negotiate up to 2M in bonuses with the player. But for the player to achieve that he has to basically be top 5 in voting for a trophy.
