My two cents...

While I'm glad we've got Emelin wrapped up for a couple more years, I do question the timing of this extension, the money isn't horrible (though it is on the high side) for a guy with under two seasons NHL experience and coming off a pretty significant injury, I'd have either expected him to sign in the 3-3.5 range or for Bergevin to wait until Emelin had played a few games, to see how he bounces back. That being said Emelin does add an element to our D that we are sorely lacking, and I'm sure had he made it to free agency he'd be looking at 4-4.5 a year, I can just see the Bruins signing him and making us pay for the next 5 years.
