Not too bad, he pulls down big minutes. I would like to see him on the PP though

Yikes. 3.36 is a little high imo, but he's a solid d-man.

That seems high to me.

Gotta hand it to PC though...he avoids big contract squabbles. I've accused him of overpaying in the past and he's proved me wrong, so hopefully this is another example.

Now let's get rid of Corvo and get the playoffs started!

Number is a bit high but I like the idea of having Boychuk around for the next 3 years.

3.36 per is a little bit too much in my opinion, but it's not my money, so enjoy Johnny.

After the hissy fit I pulled when the Ference extension went down, and the amount of crow I'm still eating for that, I'll just say congrats Johnny and look forward to 3 more years in the black & gold.

Exactly. I don't think we can be this upset about Boychuk's raise. Chia proved us all wrong once with Ference. It's seems high to me, but if it helps to solidfy the defense for the next few years, I'm happy.

Y'ouch. Hopefully no NTC or NMC. Regardless though, he's a good soldier. I'd want to get paid too.

Good to see Johnny B locked up for a few years. As for the $$ I'll just trust PC to know what he's doing and not worry myself about it.

So uh...what the hell do people expect Boychuk would have gotten as a UFA? Do you actually think with 30 teams bidding he would have gotten LESS than this?

Seems like a fair deal, especially in a world with Tim Gleason pulling down 4 starting next year. Boychuk has flaws but he's a legitimate top 4 guy on a championship caliber team. There's something to be said for that.

Congrats to Boychuk.

He was underpaid before and he earned a Cup ring. Glad to keep as many of the guys from last year's team as long as possible. Would have lost him for nothing at year end.

The term isn't too long and it's not like they would have been able to replace him in the offseason any cheaper. The market for defensemen is ultra-tight.

I don't know what the D market will be in the summer but better to lock up JB now than over pay in the summer

The AAV is high, to be sure. But how much would Chiarelli have to pay on the open market for another player of equivalent skill? Look at how much Wideman is getting. Halfway decent D-Men are no cheap, unfortunately.

And if you want a cheap replacement, you end up getting guys like Corvo (yes, I know it was a trade, but that is the caliber of player I'm talking about).

The salary cap is going to go up and Savard's number is still on the books, so this hit is still somewhat absorptive in the big picture.
