overpayment for sure. but if it was 5-5.5 we would have all said it was great so its not that much of an overpayment.

I really liked the Marchand and Seguins signings, this one is too high imo.

The only solace is that everyone thought Lucic's last contract of 4 million was an overpayment and he proved people wrong so I hope he does it again but it does seem a bit high to me.

Lucic at $6M per...

I feel so bad for the poor owners in this lockout.

Lucic is a unique player and no doubt he adds value to any team. I believe he has a shorter shelf life than a lot of more mobile skill guys in the game, and it's just a product of his style. His agent would be negotiating with this in mind, knowing Lucic will not be cashing in on his UFA years the same way some of the skill guys will be. I think it's smart by the B's because I wouldn't want to start commiting long term and paying a premium for UFA years for a guy who plays the game like Lucic does.

Why? A 24 year old 4 time 30 goal scorer and PPG player last year isn't worth 5.5 a year?

Lucic, can bring all those elements to a game plus intimidate the opposition. Lucic forechecking you is on the mind of many defenseman playing the puck. I cant think of too many forwards that can do that in this league. And btw lucic scored 5 less points than kane last year so really think long and hard about the value of this unique player.
Here's the thing... you know Kane is going to put up points. Even in an off year last year where he had his lowest point total in his career he had 66 points. Lucic at the same age has had 27, 42, 20, 62 and 60... his career high is lower than Kane's career low and their the same ages.. you don't know Lucic is going to score 60 every year... you do with Kane. That is the difference.

Boston has had one hell of an off-season. Is Lucic overpayed? Absolutely. That's okay though. They keep a very dynamic player and have enough strong deals that it doesn't matter. Losing him over 6m vs. 5m would have been terrible.

Good stuff this off-season Boston. Amazing.

Why is Jeremy Jacobs extending his players when it seems he's in full support of a lockout?

I'd take him on the Hawks for that price easily. He's the kind of player that wins you championships.

Well to be fair Sather gave him that contract. Honestly, people shouldn't laugh when a guy gets overpayed because it causes salary inflation league-wide. Laugh now, cry later.

Overpayment in the end methinks but it works out anyway IF the scores +60 points and keep playing physichal.
You are comparing his contract to contracts signed 2-3 years ago.

Remember, inflation exists in the NHL.

Take Savard's contract off the books and we are sitting at $53.3 million committed to next season. Yes, Horton and Ference are UFA and they have no goaltenders under contract next year (Rask is RFA and will sign) but I think it is pretty manageable.

Chiarelli is going to let this team make another run. If it does not work out he can make hockey trades (Pevs and Chris Kelly would be good trade bait to clear cap room and give the team flexibility).

He is showing these players on the this roster trust and commitment. If they return the favour he keeps it together for as long as he can. If they fail he makes moves to fix it.

This contract does not lock them into anything in my opinion.

Why not? Should he just let them all twist in the wind?

Yeah.. Cause Lucic game is all about pts and Lupul can make a case his game is like his...

If he hit free agency would he have signed for more than 6 million per?

Absolutely. 100%

So how is it overpayment? 29 GMs would want to sign him. Three teams wanted Semin and he got 7 million. What would 30 GMs competing do?

It is funny...

Almost as funny as trading Ryan McDonagh for the rights to pay Scott Gomez $7,357,143 a year for ANOTHER two years. Two more years of that contract.

Almost as funny as finishing 28th overall in 2011-2012.

Get the worst contract in the league off your books and finish out of the conference basement. At that point, you may laugh at another teams contracts.

Slight overpayment. I wouldn't want him on my team at $6 million but he defines everything about Bruins hockey.

Exactly. There is only one other player in the NHL (I think it's Perry) that had at least 25g, 60pts and 100pim the last 2 years. Add the physical intimidation, the fighting skills and the fact that he's only 24y and 29 GM would be all over him with offers higher if he ever reached FA.
