During SCup @Real_ESPNLeBrun reported the Bruins working on 8 year ext for Bergeron. Sounds like it's getting real close.

That would be great for Boston. Bergeron is the epitome of hockey warrior.

Bergeron deserves every penny he gets. The guy deserves every bit of praise that's bestowed upon him.

I'm absolutely pumped that they're giving him every year they possibly can in the CBA.

Anything under 7 million is a steal.

Knowing Bergeron he'd probably sign it with blood.

Fantastic player, deserves the contract.

Great news for BOS.

Is there ANYONE who dislikes this guy? One of my favorite in the league easily.

I'm expecting he takes a discount and signs for 6 million a year.

I hope not. The guy screams hockey, plays every aspect of the game at a very high level.

Risky investing those many years in a player with so many injuries.

If there is a guy the Bruins can count on to give them every discount possible, Bergeron is the guy. 8 years 44 million. 5.5 cap hit. He knows he wants to compete and giving his management the best opportunity possible by signing for less cap hit than what he's worth.
Just structure the deal so the first few years at the 35% over cap hit possible or whatever the rules are.

If anyone is willing to take a massive discount it's Bergy.

As a Bruin fan Love his game a total class act.

It is also so nice to see fans of other team see what a great team player he is.

Bergeron is simply everything you could ask a player to be. Is there players with better skills yes, This is why he was a 2nd round pick, but he plays to the best of his ability every game

I have a feeling he signs for a big discount (i.e. $5-5.5M range). Since the Letang deal is the other big one talked about right now, I'll say that Bergeron is worth a lot more than Letang. I generally dislike all Bruins, but Bergeron is great.

Smartest move the B's could make. One of the best two way players in the world, a clutch player and a warrior. They should be making sure he retires a Bruin.

8 years/50 million is my guess.

6.25 cap hit.

Bergeron is a great player, good for the Bruins. Any chance this is a sign and trade to Winnipeg
