Neither good nor bad.

It's a signing.

True, Beauchemin is better and was signed to an amazing contract

I mean its gonna be hard to beat that for any d-man

Still I like Boychuk's deal

Above average defensively with average to below average offensive abilities (based on HARD+ and HARO+) and those numbers look even better with zone start adjustment and they got him sub-3.5 million when the average for his slot is roughly 3.85... well done Chiarelli.

I mean, **** you, but well done. Stop taking the players I want.

He will be making only slightly more money than Ericsson from Detroit ...

A team too afraid to mess with chemistry and it's going to come back and bite them at some point I feel. Boychuk although not bad is a number 4 dman.

It'll bite them this deadline when they don't address glaring team needs like replacing Corvo and Pouliot and waste a year in the cup window.

That's my opinion.

This signing isn't bad though. Seems people are used to how it used to be and forgetting where the cap and market value of players are today.


Or they're stuck on NHL 12 where you can lowball the piss out of your players

and Boychuk getting 3 @ $3.36m with no NTC, while playing 20 minutes a night for the defending Stanley Cup Champions, being 5th among NHL defenders with >30 GP in on-ice Corsi, and posting the 19th-best relative Corsi, is "overpaid by about a million"?

Just so we're clear.
This!!

With every signing, there always a bunch of ppl that just say that the player is overpaid thinking the cap is at 45-50M.

On a 64M cap, Boychuck only takes up about 5.25% of that cap. Very good deal!

I see we have another thread full of people saying "overpayment", when someone is paid in line with the market.

While I totally agree with the notion that winning teams sometimes overpay for their own guys, this contract isn't a case of that. Boychuk plays top 4 minutes, he's right handed shot, and he's only 28.

Campbell, Paille, and Kelly are the guys I more worry about falling into this category. Good soldiers, know their role, and seemingly popular teammates...but the price has to be right for them to come back. Boychuk got less than he would have gotten elsewhere, so this was an easy decision for Chiarelli. Those other guys, along with how to handle the Thomas-Rask situation, are going to be the tougher decisions leading into next season.

Fine value. $3M per was probably more legit, but the Bruins gave him a little more due to the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" factor.

In today's NHL you can't take contracts signed a year ago to compare and I think people are going back 2 years.

Why?

Players only get 55% of NHL revenue... the league has cost certainty.

You think the players should get less then 55% of league revenue?

Eh. Considering what he could've bitten as a UFA, it's not bad.

Horrible underpayment. Should have got 5 years $30 million according to my calculations.

Alright, I'll bite (it's been almost an hour, so why not me?).

Let's see the calculations.

I like this deal a lot for Boston. I have a feeling if Boychuk left he wouldn't be as effective as if he just stayed.
