I have no doubt he will continue to be a good player for the Bruins, but I'm not sure he'll quite live up to a 3M cap hit which are generally reserved for players with more offensive prowess.
He got the same deal as your boy Joel Ward and Kelly has much more better stats during his career. For a 3rd liner he has 5+ 30pts seasons
