Personally, I think I'd wait until after the season. He clearly loves it here so I think he'd give Boston every opportunity to sign him. And by waiting, you get to see if he can make it through a full (half) season and playoffs. I think the half season helps them too, in terms of his value not getting too outrageous.

OT: Why is Peverley the guy "all signs" point to?

Top 5 forwards are locked up. Horton would the 6th.

Kelly has a full NTC, 3 more years after this one. The 4th line doesn't make enough to warrant whole sale changes there...and I would imagine you would leave the defense alone...

Peverley makes 3.75 mil and more easily moveable. Bruins have 7 mil, (or 11 if you LTIR Savard) on the cap number set thus far for 13-14...and still need to re-up Rask and Ference..2 forwards (Horton would make it one forward), a backup goalie and a 13th F and 7th Dman. Not much there.
