Krug is only a half-million less than Ference, with no NHL experience. I don't feel that Bartkowski is in the Bruins' plans, to be honest. I think Trotman sees the ice in Boston before Bartkowski does.
Nobody thought Ference would get the last contract he's playing now ... Since then, we won a cup. My guess is that Chiarelli re-signs him much like Horton (if he stays healthy) ... At around the same $$ he's making now.
Chiarelli likes the group he's assembled and obviously isn't much of a fan of change. I think moving forward, there aren't going to be a lot of openings unless someone forces their way onto the roster ... At which point, Chiarelli will have to adjust the lineup accordingly. And there will always be guys like Aaron Johnson and Jay Pandolfo around making it even harder for a rook to crack the lineup ... PC likes his veteran insurance policies.
Will certainly be interesting to see how things unfold moving forward, but unless another Bourque comes along or a ******* son of Cam Neely appears
, doubt anyone will be handed a spot.
I agree Horton will be resigned but with a little raise maybe, great wrist shot.
Ference not so sure Aaron Johnson is cheap salary cap issues could crop up soon Rask wants some big bucks.
