    In a league where Scott Gomez makes 7 million dollars a goal. Anything else seems like a good deal.

    Seems a bit high to me, but when you find a guy who fits the system and is reliable you hang on to him, per Chia's logic.  I think Chia has done a pretty good job with the d-men contracts.  I trust the organizational logic, based on what I've seen.

    ...but...he wouldn't have accepted $3.0?

    Sorry, shouldn't second guess.  Just a tad higher than I expected.

    That is a very reasonable signing for a guy who is on our top 2 pairing against all the stars of the league. He chips in with a few big goals with that shot. Blocks a pile of shots and is generally a good BOSTON BRUIN!! Good job PC.

    Good, solid signing of a guy that has shown he can play top-4 minutes on a cup-winning team.  He's also fun to watch and a great team guy.  Makes a few errors, but I can live with that.

    Chara does ... not as many though .I would have liked about 3m but then you'de be calling me out of touch.
    As a top4 guy some teams might have overpaid.

    Some of us have been frustrated by Boychuck's brain miscues, and the fact that the last 7 goals in the playoffs came from his area of responsibility, but, obviously Claude has convinced Peter , and there are few comparables existing,so Gleason is reasonable. Now, what about Corvo? or are they assuming Dougie can step right in? He's obviously perceived as better than those in Providence, and the success of young guns like Karlson [sp.] in Ottowa.

    Originally, I thought 3.36 was high.  When I think of the comparables you've all shown me here....seems reasonable.

    Interesting. Without Savard we're looking at closer to $13 though. Not to bad for having to sign 5 guys. Some of which will make close to minimum.

    Even after next year it'll just be Ference who's UFA on D. Just in time for Hamilton to slide in perhaps. Regarding the off-season, I feel only Paille, Kelly and Rask are important to re-sign. Everyone else can be replaced if need be.

    i haven't predicted a darn thing. I simply suggested the direction I would like to see the team take. Chiarelli has pretty much done no wrong, so hopefully I'm wrong, but I think Boychuk is a weak link, not an asset. I think smart hockey is winning hockey, and I don't think he plays a smart brand of hockey.

    You predicted the Hawks would tank and said Boychuk was awful. Both things are untrue. You also predicted a Knight interview.

    He plays hard, and bleeds black and gold and was huge in the playoffs. It is debatable who our best D-man was last playoffs. Seidenberg, Chara or Boychuck. A couple brainfarts from time to time...Who cares!! Good Job PC

    I usually count on it. Just think, you now have 3 more years to let everyone know how bad you think Boychuk is. Lucky us !

                         http://www.capgeek.com/charts.php?Team=5 Leaving $9M (w/o Savard LTIR included) to sign Rask, a defenseman (Corvo), Kelly, Campbell, Paille and Thornton this summer. Chiarelli has some decisions to make for sure. It will be an interesting camp in September as I see more veteran invites with no one-way contracts so he can have some room. PC better keep Paille because their is no one who can replace those 10 minutes and PK brilliance. If Hamilton isn't ready then that $9M starts to disappear with another vet stop gap coming in in the Boychuk price range. Can anyone guarantee Savard doesn't start feeling better this summer ? Or the cap is going to more than what it is is now coming out of the new CBA ? Got to be careful here Peter...

    Does anyone know exactly how that would work?  Cuz it's very possible.   I'd be surprised that at his age, being out of the game for over a year, whether he can  get it back, no matter how he feels. 

    I'm wondering if he did want to return, after the phsyicals were passed, the B's wouldn't argue that the injury, has taken away his ability to compete as a player at the NHL level.

    There must be some safety net there for both parties isn't there?

    Thoughts?

    A good point dez.  Chia has shown that he can dance on the salary cap tight rope if needed, but this situation is still a pretty comfortable one.

    from a cap perspective though, their replacements probably wouldn't be any cheaper overall.

    Well, I'm thinking McDermid over Thornton. Maybe 1 of the prospects might be able to take on Campbell's 4th line minutes too. Corvo, I'd happily see PC pay for an upgrade.

    Still wondering, who then is a better D with a similar level of experience that could be had from another team and then re-signed for 3.36 a year?

    Re: Boychuck 3 yr 3.36 per

    Cap space next year - $8.96 - $12.96 if you include Savard

    Forwards

    Chris Kelly - makes $2.125
    3 yr - $3.5 million per

    Campbell - makes $1.1
    2 yr - $2 million per

    Pouliot - makes $1.1
    2 yr - $1.75 million per

    Paille - makes $1.075
    1 yr - $1.75 million per

    Thornton - makes $0.8125
    1 yr - $0.8125

    Defense

    Dougie comes in and replaces Corvo
    EL deal - $1.525 million per

    Goalie

    Rask - makes $1.25
    1-2 years - $3 million per

    I think these are all reasonable assumptions for salary (think Kelly and Rask could be higher, but these contracts are within reason). Total them all together and you have $14.3375 vs cap room of $12.96 and that is for 14 forwards. Cut out one of the Paille, Campbell, Pouliot crowd and you're right at the cap.

    I think it is very possible that the Bs can keep everyone under the current cap, the main question is whether the team chooses to keep Kelly. Given how important he is to the team and the fact Chia hasn't signed him yet, my bet is that he's gone if he wants more than Peverley ($3.25).

    It's not a huge problem and Rask isn't going anywhere.

    I'm a little suprised by the amount, but he is a good player and i can live with it. Who knows, if the cap goes up in the next 3 years which I would anticipate then it makes this deal look better.

    boychuck and siedenberg are really our only 2 "big hit" threats.  He would have fetched more in FA no question.  Look at wisnewski (sp?).  If we had lost him for nothing then what?  Just cause a player is signed doesnt mean he cant be traded.  If nothing else PC has assured atleast a pick back if he's moved.

    I like him, he's the rodney dangerfield of this team.
