    Bruins Blog Article on B's Salaries is Depressing

    This article sums up the teams salary situation. If correct 10.1 million is left over to sign Krejci, Kessel, Axelsson, Bitz, Hunnwick and Yelle.

    Forget about Montador and Hnidy in this equation surely.

    That actually isn't right, its much much less. That doesn't take into effect the high cap hit of both wheeler, and Tuukka, that leaves us with closer to 6 million in cap room

    Re: Bruins Blog Article on B's Salaries is Depressing

    actually it should be higher. per peter c. the cap next year will be a soft cap. so the bonuses for wheeler and rask won't count against the cap next year and hopefully murray will win his suit and his remaining salary will be taken off the books too. so hopefully we are looking at about 12.5 or something in that range. kessel and krejci should be able to get nice raises and leave some over to fill out the roster. and above all else do not trade your future captain Bergy!!!! he'll be back to his 70 plus points with his three zone play. he was the only one able to win any face offs the other night. didn't help that his two line mates were both hurt.

    Updated salary breakdown


    http://www.boston.com/sports/hockey/bruins/extras/bruins_blog/

    "Assuming a $56.7 million cap in 2009-10, the Bruins have just over $11 million to extend their RFAs and fill out the rest of their roster. While it's not a requirement for the Bruins to move around some money to do so, they would have little wiggle room remaining after signing Krejci, Kessel, Hunwick, and Bitz, assuming they all agree to reasonable raises."
