Great deal for Boston.

Sweet. :handclap:

TorstenFrings 06-11-2012 06:05 PM

Good for them! :handclap:

Incredible. I didn't want either back for a dollar more than that, and fully expected them to come back with higher cap hits. Very happy Bruins fan right here.

Chris Kelly and the Bruins 3rd line played better than their 1st line at times last season. Very unhappy about this, great signing.

That's a bit more than I thought Kelly would get but he is a good fit there and they obviously thought it was worth keeping him.

very happy with this as a bruins fan

That sentence confused me until I saw your location :laugh:

Ih8theislanders 06-11-2012 06:10 PM

Seems about right. Good deal.

Minimalist* 06-11-2012 06:11 PM

That makes much more sense than $12m over 3.

HooliganX2 06-11-2012 06:11 PM

Well this is much better then the 4 million a year deal that was rumored at first. I'm just getting out of touch with salaries anymore. 3 million a year seems high for a 3rd line center but he may have been in the 3.25-3.75 range as an UFA if he would have looked for the money this offseason.

bme44 06-11-2012 06:11 PM

Great work PC fair value

frankthetank91 06-11-2012 06:12 PM

Only 3 million?


Deen 06-11-2012 06:12 PM

Took a discount for sure.

Confound 06-11-2012 06:13 PM

Awesome deal for the B's. Kelly could have easily gotten 3.5+ on the open market.

Coach Parker 06-11-2012 06:17 PM

Thank God by buddy texted the wrong amount of years. Four years for 3.0 million is amazing and when you consider that they just locked up their 3rd and 4th line Cup winning centers, it is a good day to be a Bruins fan.

End of Line 06-11-2012 06:19 PM

Great deal.

Skm 06-11-2012 06:27 PM

Yeesh, what is Penner worth now?

Analyzer 06-11-2012 06:33 PM

Great deal on both. I swear Gaustad will get 3.5, or more.

Luck 6 06-11-2012 06:34 PM

For ****s sake... I wanted Kelly haha.

UniverStalinGraduate* 06-11-2012 06:34 PM

When I heard 3 years 12 I thought it was fine, 4 years 12 is a great deal for the B's

Buckets and Gloves 06-11-2012 06:36 PM

Love it!!!

Great deal!!!

I was going to be happy to have Kelly back as long as the cap hit was 3 million or less, it's 3 million.. I am a happy camper!!
