Weird Contracts

I was just having a look at the Oilers team salary for the next couple years and came across a couple weird contracts.

Ethan Moreau made $1.026 million this season (or would have had he not been injured) and next year his salary goes waaaay up to $2.750 million. The following 3 years after that his contract goes down to $1.750 million per season. Odd.

Schremp's contract was at $860,000 this year (had he been in the NHL) then next year it goes down slightly to $815,000 then the following year goes down quite a bit to $650,000. Very odd for a Rookie contract. If Schremp comes around he could be in for a huge raise after his final year of his current contract.

Also, Roloson's contract goes down by a million to $3.5 next season then to $3 million in '08/'09.

If nhlnumbers.com is an accurate site then Lowe/Howson have some interesting contracts on the go.

Moreau got a 1 million dollar bonus, that's why his salary/caphit is 2.75 next year.

Aren't bonuses a thing of the past?

I noticed on the side it says that since he signed an extension his cap number is $2million next season.

Performance bonuses are limited to certain situations (generally players who missed significant time the year before). Signing bonuses are still allowed, but are added to the contract to count against the cap.

And Moreau's full deal is 4 years, paying him a total of $7mil + a $1mil signing bonus. That works out to $2.0 mil per year. Theoretcially, the Oilers could pay him $6.5 mil this upcoming season and $500k the next 3 years and it would be the same $2.0mil/year cap hit.

As for Rolosons contract, the older he gets the less he is worth...as demonstrated by his contract. 4M for a 40yr old Roloson would make everyone here **** bricks.
