BREAKING: Many Teams Hit With Bonus Cushion Penalty

Not only is Chicago's bonus cushion penalty more than estimated (it's at $4.15MM) but eight other teams join the Hawks in having their cap ceiling reduced in 2010-11. Obviously, some of these amounts are trivial, but the Bruins and Leafs ought to feel some pain. Toronto, for example, now has the highest cap hit of any team, at $61.3MM. But that shouldn't be a problem. They can just use the bonus cushion to cover the overage, can't they?
