Sources tell TSN that Boston forward Marc Savard has agreed with the Bruins on a seven-year contract extension with an annual cap hit of around $4.2 million per year.
Link to story.
Puck daddy says: For the sake of context: With his $4.2 million hit annually, Savard will cost less against the cap than Tim Connolly ($4.5 million), Daymond Langkow($4.5 million), Martin Eratand David Legwand ($4.5 million each), Milan Michalek($4.33 million) and Andy McDonald ($4.7 million).
Not exactly a slew of 90-point centers in that group, huh? Because Boston just signed theirs for seven years. Which probably makes many Bruins fans very happy, and makes non-Bruins fans wonder why their centers cost about $2.5 million more against the cap.
4.2 Million a year is a great deal. I heard talk in the 5-6 million range. Hopefully the bruins will announce the deal this week.
