Bergeron close to inking 8 year extension

LOVE this player, and I'm happy for him.


Darren Dreger ‏@DarrenDreger 1h
During SCup @Real_ESPNLeBrun reported the Bruins working on 8 year ext for Bergeron. Sounds like it's getting real close.

Rando Strange 06-28-2013 06:40 PM

That would be great for Boston. Bergeron is the epitome of hockey warrior.

PWJunior 06-28-2013 06:40 PM

Bergeron deserves every penny he gets. The guy deserves every bit of praise that's bestowed upon him.

IHaveNoCreativity 06-28-2013 06:41 PM

Good for him, no surprise there.

N o o d l e s 06-28-2013 06:41 PM

I'm absolutely pumped that they're giving him every year they possibly can in the CBA.

danyhabsfan 06-28-2013 06:44 PM

Im surprise their is no thread about this.

It was on RDS couple days ago.

93gilmour93 06-28-2013 06:44 PM

One of the best complete players in the game. He deserves it.

Malkinburgh 06-28-2013 06:45 PM

Very deserving.

dim jim 06-28-2013 06:45 PM

Anything under 7 million is a steal.

HockeyRulez 06-28-2013 06:46 PM

this is old too, jeez whats going on with some of u guys lately lol...

Shrimper 06-28-2013 06:47 PM

Knowing Bergeron he'd probably sign it with blood.

Fantastic player, deserves the contract.

Green Blob* 06-28-2013 06:48 PM

Great news for BOS.

Is there ANYONE who dislikes this guy? One of my favorite in the league easily.

Dubi Doo 06-28-2013 06:51 PM

I'm expecting he takes a discount and signs for 6 million a year.

I hope not. The guy screams hockey, plays every aspect of the game at a very high level.

Kershaw 06-28-2013 06:57 PM

Risky investing those many years in a player with so many injuries.

mstad101 06-28-2013 07:02 PM

If there is a guy the Bruins can count on to give them every discount possible, Bergeron is the guy. 8 years 44 million. 5.5 cap hit. He knows he wants to compete and giving his management the best opportunity possible by signing for less cap hit than what he's worth.
Just structure the deal so the first few years at the 35% over cap hit possible or whatever the rules are.

Hero 06-28-2013 07:06 PM

If anyone is willing to take a massive discount it's Bergy.

Marty Straka 06-28-2013 07:24 PM

This guy seriously doesn't mess around.. The definition of a true warrior!

As a Bruin fan Love his game a total class act.

It is also so nice to see fans of other team see what a great team player he is.

Bergeron is simply everything you could ask a player to be. Is there players with better skills yes, This is why he was a 2nd round pick, but he plays to the best of his ability every game

Becoming one of the most overrated players.

RedBar 06-28-2013 07:34 PM

I have a feeling he signs for a big discount (i.e. $5-5.5M range). Since the Letang deal is the other big one talked about right now, I'll say that Bergeron is worth a lot more than Letang. I generally dislike all Bruins, but Bergeron is great.

Bordeleau Of Blood 06-28-2013 07:38 PM

Smartest move the B's could make. One of the best two way players in the world, a clutch player and a warrior. They should be making sure he retires a Bruin.

Please explain ????????????????

Hockeygirl95* 06-28-2013 07:41 PM

8 years/50 million is my guess.

6.25 cap hit.

viper0220 06-28-2013 07:46 PM

Bergeron is a great player, good for the Bruins. Any chance this is a sign and trade to Winnipeg:sarcasm:
