He looks like he just spotted a cooked turkey behind the camera.

I think it's the camera lens/effect. Everyone in that picture looks overweight while Buff goes from overweight looking to obese.

Wow Byfuglien looks even bigger then last year. Just imagine a year of lockout and how he would show up to camp next year!

Byfuglien should be ban from the rinks on account that he might damage the ice. If that's not fat, it's sumo size. Maybe convert him into a goalie?

UFA at 27, good for him. I'm going to guess Subban wants and will probably get that kinda term too.

Pretty much expected contract.. The owners are surely throwing around lots of cash while threatening to lock players out and trying to lower salaries. I guess Lucy will soon re-sign for 5 years now with a 5M -5.5M caphit probably.

Hmm, maybe I have my Habs fan shades on, but I don't think the Bruins have done so well with this and the Marchand contract. They've made long commitments without saving all that much money, without buying many UFA years. I guess if Seguin goes Stamkos next season, then it'll look like a good deal, but I think that's a longshot.

They've did good with Seguin, bad with Mardechand.(Sorry for the real bad pun.)

If you give Seguin a 2-3 years contract you'll have to pay him 6-8 millions. By doig this they save big buck for 2-4 years.

I guess it depends how good you think Seguin is. Putting up that many points at 19 years old is very, very impressive, but he is in a pretty unique situation. Bergeron and Krejci are still the heavy lifters down the middle, and of course Chara drives the whole team. I think it's tricky to evaluate just how good Seguin is, and how good he will end up.

Anyway, my beef with the deal is the length. If you believe Seguin is a centerpiece (at $5.75/per, that's a "yes"), I don't think you want him going UFA after his 26 year old season. I don't see the point of signing him to a 6 year contract right now, unless you're convinced he establishes his value at 7mil/per by the end of this season.

I think he's franchise good.

At this price Colorado had PLP.

Sorry, you lost me? I thought you might have meant PAP, but he's only costing 4mil/yr, and he was a UFA...

Ok so if Seguin isn't doing the heavy lifting and is still potting over 65 points...what does it say when he gets to do the heavy lifting with the top talent on the team with the team focusing on his strengths when creating the gameplan.......

Seguin is a stud and he's one i take any day on the habs even at the price of scott gomez (by that i mean 7+mil)

Chara plays 25min/g, so even the second tier forwards on the team get to play with "the top talent." Seguin is getting more favorable zone starts and a lighter quality of competition than Bergeron.

Again, I'm not saying that I wouldn't take Seguin on my team! I absolutely would love Seguin on the Habs, contract included. I just think there are a couple of options that would've been smarter bets for the Bruins. They could have gone safe, waiting until after the season for the extension, then going with a series of short deals commensurate with his performance. Or, if they are convinced like you that he is a franchise player and wanted to get a long extension in before the next CBA, they could have bought more UFA years, like we did with Pacioretty or to a lesser extent like the Oilers did with Hall. As it is, both Seguin and Marchand are signed to deals that are expensive enough that they qualify as gambles by the Bruins, yet not long enough to be offer significant enough rewards for the team if the players outperform the contracts, IMO.
