The Edmonton Oilers had high hopes coming into this season, rounding out their roster with players in league minimum contracts. Unfortunately, they haven't had a good start to the season at all.

One of those players who are on bargain bin contracts is Connor Brown, but as always with near league minimum contracts, Brown's is laced with performance bonuses. One such bonus is due for games played. With the Oilers taking on the Nashville Predators and Brown in his 10th game, Edmonton has to pay up; take a look.
Brown, 29, has zero's across the board through 9 games player for Oilers this season. Not the start to the season Brown or Edmonton would've wanted.
However, having to pay 3.225 million in bonuses to Brown would've been easier to swallow had he gotten some points to start the year. As it stands though, that's a hefty price to pay for someone who's been slotted in on the 4th line more often than not, including in today's game.
What do you expect with Ken Holland at the helm though. If he's proved anything throughout his time in the league it's that he has a habit of overpaying depth players
