Jarome Iginla – Boston Bruins (1 year, $1.8M + $4.8M in performance bonuses)

For this season, this is a bargain.  However, depending on what the bonuses are and if he earns them, it could cause a cap nightmare for the Bruins next season as they would most likely have to carry over some, most or all of those to next year’s cap (although the cap will go up next year, so they might have some wiggle room.  They will be a cap team either way, so whatever carries over will be dealt with.  I can’t imagine the bonuses will be too difficult to attain should he stay healthy, the Bruins just needed the cap flexibility for this season.
