the TSN list would be good - but also the new CBA so we can understand exactly what comprises "salary" for cap purposes. For instance, I know that for multi year deals, the average of the salary over time goes against the cap, not each year's individual salary.
Also, incentives and bonuses.
Funny thing about those bonuses. It looks like most of them are gone. I found this on NHL.com's CBA FAQs. I already knew the team bonus concept, which was most of NJ's bonuses, was out with this CBA. But look at this:
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.
Most players in their prime aren't allowed to have performance bonuses in their contracts. Only if you were hurt & sign a 1-year deal coming back. Otherwise it's for the very "young" and the very "old" only.
I'm not sure whether this wipes out performance bonuses in EXISTING contracts...or whether they just go away going forward.
