    Marchand signs for 4 years, $18 million

    http://www.csnne.com/hockey-boston-bruins/bruins-talk/Bruins-Marchand-agree-on-four-year-18-mi?blockID=769413&feedID=3352


    Given some of the contracts that have been thrown out to players coming off their entry level deals, this isn't a bad signing at all.

    OK, how the heck did the same thread go up thrice???? This new board is driving me daffy - it took me 10 minutes just to get on here.

    So looking at capgeek, for next season the Bruins have 7 players to sign and $21 million to do it, (that's with Savard on LTIR) assuming a $60 million cap.

    As long Marchand keeps making his opponents look daffy Red, Bruins fans are good to go. Money looks good to me and I look forward to reading my post three times lol

    It still seems weird to be making extensions like these now.  The money looks okay (on a comparison basis, at least; I'd still prefer he prove his worth one more year before getting that much), but makes me wonder what Lucic will get.  Yikes.

    Does this deal buy any UFA years? (Under current CBA, of course).

    Capgeek has him as a UFA at the end of this deal. I think it would be his 7th year as a Bruin, so it doesn't grab any additional UFA years.

    I'm surprised by the lack of venom towards Marchand in TSN's comment section. Most fans, regardless of who they cheer for, seem to feel it was a great signing.

    Yeah, there's a lot of hate towards him on there, but also a lot of respect. My favourite comment so far is
    "2.5mil a season for points, 2mil a season for being annoying."

    Re: Marchand signs for 4 years, $18 million

    I don't think that Seguin as of right this moment deserves anymore than Marchand. They were close in points, played on the same line, and are young players. Outside of that Marchand has a better points total over the last 2 seasons, plays on the PK, and is an agitator.  I don't see that Seguin is worth more YET. If Seguin does the same as last season he won't be worth much more, if he continues to develope then we're talking =)

    Re: Marchand signs for 4 years, $18 million

    marchand last season=  28g 27a 55pts
    seguin last season= 29g 38a 67pts

    Thats a pretty big difference in production in my book. That is the difference between 4.5mil and 6mil in a contract. If seguin lead the team again with 67pts then id say he would be in a pretty commmanding postion to ask for the same contract hall and eberle got.

    Re: Marchand signs for 4 years, $18 million

    As Bookboy pointed out if in fact there decrease in the Cap and an across the board reduction of contracts, Marchand along with Seguin and et. al should be signed up.  JJ was fooled in 2004, will his strategy change as a result.  Self-interest should be the mantra like Snider in Philly.

    "During a conference call with the media on Friday to discuss Brad Marchand’s new extension, Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli essentially told inquiring minds he wasn’t here to talk about the future.

    After singing Marchand’s praises, commending his rise through the ranks and ascension to the role of gifted NHL scorer, Chiarelli was understandably asked about the progress he’s made with the other top-flight players that are – like Marchand was until a few hours ago – set to become free agents in one form or another next summer.

    “Well I’ve had some discussions and I’ll leave it at that,” the GM said. “I don’t really like to comment on negotiations, but for the sake of hearing something different than the labor situation, I’ll go off the rails a bit and tell you I’ve had some discussions with some of our guys.”


    Chiarelli handled Chara, Krejci, Bergeron, Lucic, Seidenberg and Boychuks re-signings just fine so i'm sure someting will get done with Seguin soon. Now if I were a player making less than $3.5M playing for the Bruins and the cap came in less than $70M after the new CBA comes out I would keep my bags packed.

    Re: Marchand signs for 4 years, $18 million

    I'm not concerned with Seguin being signed at all mostly because of the market is established with the signings of Hall,Eberle and Skinner. I do wonder, with perhaps the cap coming down, what will happen with Lucic.

    Cap coming down will make it interesting for the B's...  The signings of Rask and Marchand with term length and dollars have been 2 of the best (for any team) in the offseason.
