Contract for Rookies Could Grow

via Sportsnet,
If Alexander Ovechkin decides to play in the NHL next season, he could still make mega-bucks, writes the National Post. An agent told the Post that the NHL's soon-to-be-ratified CBA will cap entry-level salaries at US$850,000, but will allow players to earn another US$850,000 in performance bonuses and up to US$4-million more if he finishes in the top 10 in goals, assists, points, or wins a major award, such as the Calder Trophy. Goalies would receive similar bonuses. "The entry-level system is not bad at all," a top agent told the Post. "It could be very lucrative. It's based on merit. If you perform well, you will make a lot of money."
