He is a RFA. He is only 24 and only has 3 NHL seasons I believe.

Um...Bochenski needs to play 80 games in the NHL before the end of the year or I think he would be a Group VI UFA since he turns 25 on April 4. If he plays every game before the end of the year, he will have played 81 NHL games, one more than he needs to be a RFA.

Well that is potentially disturbing news. However, you gotta believe that Bo appreciates the chance the Bruins have given him, and he seems to be a likeable guy who fits in great on this club. Can't really see him spurning the B's and signing elsewhere.

I'm just worried his agent will whack him on the leg the last week.

I mentioned this in another thread, Group VI requires you to be 25, with 3 professional seasons and less than 80 NHL games. The lockout year does not count as a professional season towards Group VI free agency, since Group VI is predicated on having less than a certain amount of NHL games, and no NHL games were played. He only has 2 professional seasons that count, so no unrestricted free agency for Bochenski this year. At least, thats how I understand it to be.

Even if he did have enough professional seasons to qualify, he is on pace to play more than 80 games by the end of the year.

Phew! I got a little anxious there. So the lockout counts as a pro season for group 3 guys, but not group 6 guys? I guess that makes sense since group 3's aren't really full time NHLers (due to the lack of games played) so why should an NHL lockout affect them.

Hmm. I would feel better if I could find that said in the CBA. If anyone knows what section, that would be great. I can see why the NHL would want that. If it's true, Bochenski is really getting robbed since he never played a pro game before that season, and his chances of making the NHL would have been pretty slim.

Here's hoping he just plays out the string.

This would explain why Boston will owe Chicago a 4th rounder if Bo plays the rest of the season in the NHL.

It's article 10.

Not to worry about Bochenski becoming a UFA, Dafoomie is right.

The CBA does in fact say the 2004-05 lockout season will not count as a "professional season" towards Group VI unrestricted free agency (pg 304). Therefore, by virtue of the fact that BranBo will only have played two professional seasons, he's ineligible to be a UFA.

The AHL played during the lockout. Did he play somewhere in '04-'05?

Brandon Bochenski will NOT be an RFA.
You can also bet BB and PC will have no problems working out a contract either.

I think we'll see Bochenski get the standard 10% raise + maybe some bonus incentives. Hopefully it's a 2 year deal, but I think it will only be 1 year. So Bochenski will need to have a huge year to get a bigger raise on his next contract.

Did you mean to say he will not be a UFA? He only has 2 pro seasons.

Ranold, I love that the Ronald McDonald head in your avatar matches the blocker, glove and pads on MacDonald.
