i think i may have started another thread earlier about this....Jagr is such a good fit for the Bruins. Especially given that he only wants a one year contract.
The bruins currently have 46.837 committed, not including either of the goalies, because i have no idea what's going to happen with those guys. They also have 2.655 in bonus cushion room available. For this year, they have cap space, might as well take advantage of it. Jagr can fit in well with any of the top 3 lines, and seguin could be kept on the wing if that is the route julien looks to take (it is also what i would do). Want to hear my dream team? of course you don't, but i'm going to jot it down anyway.
Lucic (4) Krejci (5.25) Jagr (3.5)
Marchand (2.5) Bergeron (5) Seguin (3.55 with 2.65 in bonuses)
Teddy Purcell (2.36) Peverley (3.25) Horton (4)
Thornton (1.1) Campbell (1.25) Caron (.9)
Chara (6.9) Seids (3.25)
Ference (2.25) Hamilton (2.55 with 1.65 in bonuses *estimate)
Quaider (1.567) Boychuk (3.36)
Rask (3.5 *estimate)
that brings us in at just under 61 mill, plenty of room (traded thomas for purcell and a mid level pick, signed Jags for 5.5, re-signed Rask for 3.5, re-signed capmbell for 1.25, signed Hamilton for 2.55)
