PERFORMANCE BONUSES

What players may earn in performance bonuses?

Performance bonuses will only be permissible for the following types of players: (1) players on entry-level contracts; (2) players signing one-year contracts after returning from long-term injuries (players with 400 or more games who spent 100 or more days on injured reserve in the last year of their most recent contract); and senior veteran players who sign a one-year contract after the age of 35.

Impressive that Clarke was able to pull that off.

Esche had no leverage. He had to play to warrent a big contract next year which he probably wont be getting with the Flyers with Nitty in the fold.

It's Not only Clark but some of our RFA's who could have signed for more dough and Richards and Carter could have re-entered the draft, should all be applauded. It's nice to see the Team First attitude.

I believe we are all set now, unless we can get another decent winger for around 500K.

Can't wait for opening day.

If he goes out and plays his ass off this year and wins the Cup, he'll get paid and Nitty will be shipped out. The age difference isn't that big.

Is this verified? From my calculations, I have the Flyers only left with 2.38 million assuming they sign Niittymaki at the minimum. Now that doesn't include deferred salary to Primeau and Recchi which I believe counts against the cap.

That's tight. However Esche only made $560,000 the last season the game was being played, so this QO is 110% of the 24% rollback of $560,000. When you do the rollback, the salary goes under $450,000 so I think they bump it to the minimum and then do the 110%, which is a QO of $495,000... thats nothing. I'm shocked that Esche would sign for so little.

Good for Clarke, if its true. I haven't seen this on TSN or Sportsnet yet.

Didn't sign the qualifying, but signed nonetheless.

Only one left is Seidenberg.

The Flyers are lucky they've got a lot of team-first players on their hands. It's a shame how rare seeing that has become.

I spoke too soon.
Here is the link to the TSN story. It's a two year deal, so it's not the qualifiying offer that he signed. It'll be interesting to see how much Esche cost and whether it will force them to dump a Handzus or something.

Looks like Dennis Seidenberg accepted his qualifying offer for this season, too.

So thats the Flyers done, everyone signed and about $1.5m under the cap which will leave enough room for a nice scoring winger at the deadline or even Rags if he wants to come back.

when forsberg gets injured, will the flyers have to use that extra money, or will they be able to use his 5 million?

They'll lend the money saved from Forsberg's IR trip to the Bruins so that O'C can buy a #3 and a #4 defenseman.

As long as he's healthy April, May and June ... we'll be fine Oct.-March with or without him.

Niity is their future in goal, it seems like they've been grooming him forever. Esche will be an UFA when his 2 year deal ends I believe. He'll probably start this year and backup Niity next year.

The money to Primeau and Recchi has already been paid, and besides, under the rules of the new CBA deferred salary counts against the cap for the year the player actually played. Seriously, thats a real stretch to argue that salary owed from 03/04 would count towards the 05/06 cap

Oh, and 2.38 mil isnt too bad when all you have left to sign is Denis Seidenberg and you have a full 23 man roster.
