An issue with the offer the Ottawa Senators made to Erik Karlsson was reportedly the signing bonuses.
Ottawa reportedly offered Karlsson a contract close to the eight-year, $88 million that Drew Doughty signed with Los Angeles in terms of total value, but where the Senators' fell short was how much of it was in signing bonuses. Signing bonuses are paid in a lump sum rather than over the course of the season and stars will typically get contracts that are skewed in favor of them. Among other things, signing bonuses can offer the player with protection from losing significant money over the course of a lockout. The vast majority of John Tavares' contract for example is in signing bonuses. It sounds like that was an are where Ottawa either couldn't or wouldn't sufficiently compete though. Jul 15 - 12:05 AM
