What is the make-up of a contract?

Something that I have always wondered, is how many elements are involved in a pro level contract? Generally, we are only exposed to two elements: the money and the length. I'm assuming that there is a standard NHL contract that every player is entittled to, which ensures optimal health care and travel; but what other kinds of things are included? Also, are there certain players or agents that have received more than others(aside from money)?

It would be interesting to hear that a certain player signed a contract that ensured them breakfast every morning, or something along those lines.

I appreciate any information or insight!

Cheers,

Duncanuck

CBA has a standard template (see thread on CBA for link: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1448935) that covers $$, term, "no trade"/"no move" clauses.

Here's a real example: Malkin's rookie contract.

And there have been done interesting variations. Messiers contract with Vancouver had a clause with it that If the value of the franchise went up, they would have to pay him more. Hence his lawsuit a couple of years back

It should be pointed out that contracts like that are no longer legal under the most recent two CBA's.

I appreciate for the information guys. I found the bonuses and player conduct the most interesting bits in the hockey buzz article. Poor Ovechkin not getting his top 5 hart individual "B" bonus in 05/06 by one spot.
