    Just read a tweet that will give Shupe a heart attack. It claims that Rask will get near 60 million for 8 years and that it just needs to be finalized with the league.

    Jesus.  That's a big contract.  I'm all for locking Rask up long term, but man, that's a big deal.

    Trade Tuukka for Ryan Miller if Miller he will sign a 2 or 3 year extension. Add a pick if you need to. If you're going to pay a goalie $7M plus per year it might as well be for one of the top 3 in the game.  Miller won't sign again in  Buffalo so they have to move him.  If Subban is what they think he is going to be you don't want someone if front of him taking up cap space in years 4 - 8 of a bad contract.

    What has Miller ever won? A siver medal with a pretty good team in front of him, ok. What do you think Miller will want a yr when he signs his extension? I'm not sure Tuukka is worth over $7 mil a year but he's pretty good himself and has already beat Miller head to head in a playoff series.

    Yikes.  I like it...I think.  

    Impossible to be 100% happy with the risk of such a big, long contract...but I like it...I think.

    Thrilled Rask isn't going anywhere.  I'll say that.

    My goodness, that can't be right. $7.5MM AAV for 8 years!  WHAT?

     

    What can the Bruins get for Malcolm Subban?  If those figures are correct, he just became irrelevant.

    So next summer Chiraelli has $13M to sign Krug, Bartkowski, Seidenberg and another top 6 forward. Bergeron will probably take up $6.5M.

    I dont think Seidenberg will be on the team after next season.

    8 X 7 .... 56 Million.  Yikes.

    Good for Tuukka, but those numbers make me cringe.  Tuukka passes Chara for highest paid by $100,000 per season (I didn't think that would happen).

    I thought 7.2 just missed it. Oh well.

    Thats a ton of money and 8 years for anyone is a big risk.

    Still, I just love how Tuuk refused to sign for a discount last offseason and had the confidence to risk a one year contract to prove himself. It could have blown up on him.

    Ballz 'o steel.
