Just got the notification too. I wonder what the cap hit is. Glad he's here for another 9 years!

TP 07-12-2013 10:22 AM

Boom!

I don't even care what the hit is.

Now if Chia would just stop sitting on his hands and make an off-season trade/ deal this team would be fine:sarcasm:

8 more Bergy years:yo:

Every veteran star center pretty much has concussion history.

Don't worry, be happy!

Plus, there's LTIR (god forbid we ever need to address it).

Fantastic. Decent cap hit for one of the best players in the NHL, and a guy who exemplifies what it means to be a Bruin. :handclap:

Afam* 07-12-2013 10:28 AM

money wise, im not too worried about it, but why the 8 year contract though . chia is handing out 8 year contracts like its candy.

Latrappe 07-12-2013 10:28 AM

Ultimate team player. Flawless work ethic. Passion for the game and great ambassador for the organisation. Glad that he will finish his career as a Bruin.

TP 07-12-2013 10:29 AM

I plan on getting a Bergy jersey and I will have the C sewn on instead of an A. Eventually, I will be right. I will just have to deal with weird looks for a few years.

BigBadBruin8 07-12-2013 10:30 AM

Giggitty.


Somewhere Caballo Blanco gently weeps...

No. Bergeron will retire as Bruin. That's the purpose of this contract...

Hometown discount!

Exactly.

Pay him the whole cap? No problem. Lifelong Bruin.

8thRoundPick 07-12-2013 10:30 AM

I know we needed to sign Rask, but this was the important one for me. He deserves every penny of that $1.5M raise, and to have him locked up max term, just beautiful.

Me thinks I`ll just trust Chia and his troops....too much worry/concern over things we have absolutely no control over, and for what is, in the grand scheme of things both a game, and not our money

Why not just be happy that we aren`t watching a parade of players in contract squabbles or having to listen to them walk and after it`s said it was over a half million???

You "appear" to be a young fan, you may not recall a day not so long ago where the above was the norm

Greek_physique 07-12-2013 10:32 AM

Again people are going to complain about the 8 year deal? :(

I want this guy here for LIFE!

Hometown discount.

BruinsFan0877 07-12-2013 10:32 AM

Bergeron! Bergeron!

Pretty excited to see this guy in black and gold for the next 9 years.

Never had any doubts but nice to see it confirmed.

Class act.
