Same thing that happened with Voracek, Simmonds, and Couturier.

The idea that LTIR is free money and thus is a good strategy to use is totally misguided.
I know it's not free, but the vast majority of Schenn and Couturier's bonuses are practically unreachable.

In the third year of Schenn's contract, he doesn't have to play the 25 minutes in all regular season games to earn a handsome $1.5 million dollar bonus, but to qualify he would have to have an All-Star season, finish among the league's point leaders and win a major award.
And next season only Laughton among the forwards will have an ELC contract, and the maximum bonus is only $212,500. This season he has no performance bonus.
