Maybe a loophole for teams like the Isles trying to reach the cap floor, but now it will be a loophole for teams trying to stay under the cap ceiling.

If I understand this correctly, a team with $2M in cap space can sign an elite player to $2M, but throw in $4-5M in easily obtainable bonuses. So his cap hit is only $2M, but in reality he's making $6 or $7M? Or do I have this wrong?
