Erik Gustafsson, Brayden Schenn and Harry Zolnierczyk to Phantoms

Now confirmed on Flyers' Twitter.

Quote:
Sources say Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn has been informed he will be temporarily assigned to the AHL and the motivation behind this move is 100% cap specific.

Schenn's contract, negotiated by the Los Angeles Kings will pay him $900,000 this year, plus $850,000 in entry level 'A' bonuses for a total of $1.75 million, however Schenn has substantial 'B' bonuses included in his deal that would be very cap unfriendly to the Flyers.

The 'B' bonuses in the first two years of his contract pay Schenn $1.265 million and $1.405 million if he plays 25 minutes in each of the 82 regular season games.

These are unlikely, if not impossible bonuses to achieve, although Philadelphia isn't willing to take the chance and face the possibility of having to absorb a cap hit of just over $3 million, so to cut the cap hit to a reasonable $1.75 million for this season, Schenn will be assigned to the Philadelphia Phantoms for at least one game, therefore nullifying the 'B' bonus clause this season.

At least Brayden gets to hold onto the title of "Best Player Not in the NHL"

That means Brayden Schenn's cap hit should drop from $3.11m to $1.705m after just one day in the minors.

#NHL #Flyers Brayden Schenn is only eligible for $1.405m in B bonuses if he spends every day on the Flyers' roster and appears in 82 games.

Coming in peace. Completely shocked when I heard the news. I thought Schenn was as close to a lock as a player can be.

Oh, sweet. He carries half the cap hit if he isn't on the roster for just one game. Hopefully he'll be donning the orange and black for game 2. Phew...

He's currently injured, which likely has a lot to do with it. The theory espoused by many here is that he will be allowed to rehab in the AHL while Courturier gets a few games to see what he can do in the regular season.

He missed the last couple of preseason games with a shoulder injury. There are now posted financial reasons.

Judging by the 1.4 mil overage penalty we are carrying this year, yes.

Never understood this claim, there are so many players in the euro leagues (KHL specifically) that are leagues better than Schenn.

You're, right, sarcasm doesn't translate well over the internet.

IMO, Radulov takes that title, but that's a conversation for another forum.

From Darren Dreger:

Brayden Schenn's contract is interesting. He could earn a "B" bonus of $1.265 this season if he played 25 mins or more in all 82 games.

Same "B" bonus for Schenn next year, but it's a $1.405 pay out for all 82. For those reasons Schenn will play 1 game in AHL to start.

by playing just 1 game in the AHL, Schenn's cap hit drops from over $3 mil to $1.75. He still earns $900,000 in salary and $850,000 in bonus
