My jaw dropped a little when I saw the $ amount. I signed him for 4.5 as a Fantasy Draft GM.

Well, I said he wouldn't get $5M+... and I was right!

As a pure RFA deal, I'd say that's fair. Krejci's not worth 5+ until he has UFA status to bargain with.

Or if he tried to leverage an RFA offer sheet. Were he to wait it out a bit through the summer, there's certainly a possibility that someone could give him an offer sheet, which would likely be in the $4.5M-5.5M range, but good on Krecji for not holding out for 'screw you' money.

One question. Will Krejci still be an RFA when this deal expires? Isn't the rule that a player must have played 7 years or be 27-years-old in order to qualify for free agency. If so, that makes this deal even better.

That's the first thing I thought of as well. This sets a major precedence on the price of valuable RFAs - and that's a good thing for a fan of any team.

Great signing.

Great signing.
Between a relatively inexpensive signing of Krejci, and Parise's already low cap hit, I have great faith in Zajac coming back on a quite reasonable deal, barring any Lowe-like shenanigans.

This is proof that Chiarelli is a great GM.

I was floored when I saw the price. I wanted it in the 3.25-3.75 range but was sure the deal was going to be 4+. This DEFINITELY gives Chiarelli the opportunity to make minor moves (i.e. Ward) and resign all the RFAs (Kessel, Hunwick, Bitz) while upgrading the D. If he can bring in Kessel for under 4 he gets a free pass for the rest of the year from me.

This will be one of the best contracts in the league over the next 3 years. Amazing signing.
Not to mention that he played most of the season on a gimpy hip that required surgery right after they were eliminated...

This kid's one of those players that makes everyone around him better... MAN it's a pleasure to watch him play!

Whole lot of good that did him. The B's signed Savard AND Muckler's own Chara (possibly the main reason why they didn't want to let him go early) before Chia even came over . Not to mention they drafted Kessel and traded for Rask. No knock on Chiarelli, but he came over to a nice situation.

Why didn't Melnyk dump Muckler and keep Chiarelli considering he later dumped Muckler for Murray?

another impressive move by Chia - about .75 mill than I thought and .25 less than I hoped for.

Adding Krejci's cap hit (3.75) to Boston's money cap commitments for next year, it puts them at $51.29m with 15 players under contract (excluding the minor league players listed). It could be a tight fit, but the deal is too good to pass up imo.
Wheeler's deal will only be 850k for next year, not 2.8 mil. And Rask, when called up will be 850k as well, not 3.2 mil

While those are their salaries, with rookie bonuses/incentives included, 2.8m and 3.2m are their cap hits.

I think it's 4 years and 25 years old since the lockout. Which would ultimately make him an unrestricted free agent when this contract expires.

Fair deal for both parties, in my mind. Hopefully he can keep a 60+ point pace throughout next season. Otherwise the HF herald might bring out the BUST-STICKS.

While that's true - with the cushion back in place teams are allowed to exceed the salary cap by the amount of the bonuses, with any overage being counted against the following years cap. And the "Type B" bonuses are almost impossible to get, unless you win the Calder, which Wheeler can't and Rask is highly unlikely unless Thomas gets hurt.

All of that being said - the Bruin's wouldn't want to go over because the cap is already falling the following year, so that would be a double whammy.

Krejci is a smart kid. He isn't the toughest nor the fastest, but he's very smart with the puck. His poise at such a young age is incredible. Good signing for Boston. He's the guy that stood out the most for me during the Montreal-Boston series.

I think we're hopeful it will pull Kessel's numbers down a bit. Krejci is the more complete player, the more valuable player to the B's, and the one more GM's call about (according to our inside man/Globe reporter). But the NHL has always paid a little more for goals...

I think a lot of us see a lot of Datsyuk in Krejci. He's not as fast, and he's more physical, but in terms of two-way game, hockey sense, passing... He put up all those points getting 3rd line minutes and 2nd unit PP duty this year. He led the NHL in +/-... like you said, he's a special player. And this was an amazing signing.

Yes, he'll have one year of RFA eligibility left.

I have to admit, Great deal for Bruins.

Luckily it is also good deal for all other GMs that have RFAs to sign. Krejci's contrac offers very effective comparison to be used in negotiations instead of Carter's contract from the last summer.
