[QUOTE]People seem to forget Savard's injury has opened up about 5 million bucks that wasn't there before. Obviously, the B's winning the Cup proved Chiarelli to be in the right, but make no mistake: Pevelery, Kelly and Kaberle aren't here without Savard's concussion. That's just a fact. So, the Ference contract while questionable at the time, proved not to be. Ference also improved his play. Kudos to Ference. What's more tiring are teeniebopper fans like Dauber who don't have a clue about caps and economics. They're 22 and probably still live at home. Nothing like a kid talking down to adults who deal with finances on a daily basis. With this signing, McQuaid proved his worth and proved he has upside in this system. It's good invest in known commodities. Just like Ference, but Ference's contract was generous. This? Not so much. A good market deal with the hope McQuaid morphs into a 4th type and maybe replaces a Ference.

people seem to forget that savard was on the books for 4 mill, not 5. know the numbers before you start preaching.
people have not forgotten how you were constantly a debbie downer, saying this is terrible, that is terrible. i seem to recall you saying the bruins could not win the cup as structured. well i think the basement dwellers who said depth and balance was a good thing were proven right when the cup came to boston.
you act like PC and the bruins got bailed out by Savards injury. This is a guy who has had 49 power play points in one season with the bruins...my guess is that he just may have helped out the anemic PP a little bit.
run the numbers. take out kelly, add in savard (they wouldn't have gotten kelly with savard) and the bruins would have come in under the cap at 56.375.
now lets take a look at the awesome contracts on the bruins and see if PC really needed to get bailed out by an injury
Thomas - 5
Krejci - 3.75
bergeron - 5
horton - 4
lucic - 4
seidenberg - 3.25
ference - 2.25
rask - 1.25
peverley - 1.325
mcquaid - .575
campbell - 1.1
chara - 6.5
keep preaching buddy, you can know all you want about econ but i understand the way of the cap, if you think it has been mismanaged (as you have previously stated) you are insane
