    Derek Brousard

    5 million per x 5 yrs from rangers,  this is a third line guy.


    anyone think the b's are getting  d.k for 6 to 6.5 per like bergy? he would be worth 7.5 or more on market. I think soda is a better player than brousard and will be unrestricted also.  Something is going to have to give here. just saying.

    Re: Derek Brousard

    He will be a 2nd line center in NY. He was the 48th highest scoring center in the NHL, and there are 60 top 2 center jobs in the NHL.

    I still think it was an over-payment. 7 years in the league, and this former 6th overall pick has still not scored 19 goals in a season, and only wins 48% of his face-offs.

    He was also out-scored by the YETI last year, even though averaging 1.5 minutes more ice time per game.

    I doubt this signing will have an impact on any negotiations with Krejci or Soderberg, because I think all the GM's have an understanding with the Agents, that anything Sather does, has no bearing on what happens in the rest of the league :)

    Brousard?

    Are you sure you got the right guy? I think you made a boo-boo.

    Re: Derek Brousard

    Derick Brassard is overpaid too.  A guy who couldn't make it Columbus gets a massive deal in NY...odd.

    I wonder if there is a connection with Nash.

    Re: Derek Brousard

    If there is, it's not helping Nash.

    I think there's a long-standing belief that this guy has more to give than what we've seen.  His first full year in Columbus, he had 25 points in 31 games - a 66 point pace that included 10 goals - and then (stop me if you've heard this story before) he got concussed.  When he came back, he played for Hitchcock, Noel, Arniel and Richards in a very short span.  Then he got traded and was behind a bunch of other centres in NY.  If you believe this is a guy with a high offensive threshold who just hasn't had the right opportunity to shine, the deal could make sense.

    On the other hand, I think it's disastrous strategy to create the conditions for a guy like this to prove he can be that player who was drafted 6th overall at the same time as he's up for contract renewal.  Now what you've done is say to him, look, Richards is gone, and we think you're a good second line centre to pair with Stepan. Then you turn around and say what to him when negotiating his contract?

    He's proved nothing, but they've pencilled him in anyway, and that means they don't have a lot of options outside of look for a better #2C or pay him for what they want him to do rather than what he's done.

     

     

    Are you not entertained?!?!

    Personally, I think he is a legit #2 center and is now being paid accordingly in today's market. It is not outrageous...

    It could be looked at that Slats used Callahan's money for Brassard. Rags also have MSLs money coming off the books at the end of this season as well. I can see why NY is signing Derek now thinking he could move up next season.

    My opinion:

    Krejci at five years, $35M.

    Soderberg for two years, $7M.

    Boychuk gets three years, $15.75M.

    And that's my opinion.  They are in the ballpark of what's reasonable.  Some may think those totals are low.  Some may think they're high.  Either way, it's impossible to prove today, so save your "No way does...".

     I agree, if those players are going to stay in Boston that is probably around what they will get. If they choose to test the market, however, all bets are off....

    Why would Krejci, a borderline #1 center with a difficult to understand playoff history, be affected by a Norris Trophy winning Top 5 at this position player?

    Answer:  He wouldn't be.

    NAS - What was your logic behind the length of each contract? I don't disagree, I'm just curious if you used other expiring contracts on the team to come up with those terms??

    I figure Krejci will get a big deal from someone and first line players get locked up for longer deals.

    Soderberg needs to prove himself.

    Second pairing defensemen don't usually get longer terms.

    And I guessed a  lot.

    those are actually reasonable contracts nas,I wish we could make them reality. the bruins will be fine this year but in 2015 they will have 11 ufa or rfa's according to cap geek.

    Krejci

    Campbell

    paille

    Soderberg

    Smith

    florek

    Boychuck

    Mcquaid

    Hamilton

    Bartkowski

    Krug

    Svedberg 

    they have committed $46,675 million out of a 69 million cap, so say the cap goes up 3 million each of the next two years that's roughly 30 million  for those spots.
