I believe Lou has another move or even 2  to go + the signing of Henrique.

I don't think they will be signing Brunner, unless he really can't find anywhere else to go.  A two year deal with someone like Calgary wouldn't be the worst thing for him.

Looks like it leaked from Jagr's Czech connections. Lou probably wasn't super happy about it, but in the age of social media it's going to be nearly impossible to keep secrets like he once did. Of course, Schneider was still a great secret, so he can pull it off when the other party is willing to play along.

$2 million base salary + $2 million more if he reaches games played bonus, per @reporterchris. So $4M hit for Jagr. #NJDevils

does those Bonus are the 35+ bonus that we can go over the cap with ? so technically he's only costing us 2m on the current cap ?

Now can someone explain to me how the bonuses work? Do they count against the cap or not? I've heard several things such as:

.yes the do count against the cap regardless of whether the players get the bonus or not

.the player has to fulfill the requirement of the bonus for it to count against the cap

.Bonuses count but don't count against ur cap at the end of the year.

Performance Bonus Cushions will be in place for every year of the CBA. A bonus cushion allows teams to temporarily exceed the cap because of player bonuses. Many bonuses are never earned and therefore never hit the cap, effectively reducing the player’s cap hit. If after the season a team is over the cap because of bonuses, they will receive a bonus overage penalty the following season. The bonus cushion is also the reason Brayden Schenn “had” (I use that term loosely because he didn’t literally have to, but it was the smart decision based on his bonuses) to begin the season in the AHL last year.

 

and here's another article about those bonus

Jagr has only missed the playoffs twice in his career.

 

well technically his team missed it last season and got traded to a contender

So in reality, if the Devils stay under the cap this year (with Jagr's $4 million total compensation), the whole cap hit will be in 2013-14.  If they go over the cap, they can get charged a portion or all of the $2 million next year for Jagr's bonus instead.
