B's Re-sign Defenseman Matt Hunwick to a 2 year/$2.9 million dollar deal

Quote:
BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has signed defenseman Matt Hunwick to a multi-year contract extension. Per club policy, terms of the deal will not be disclosed.

Hunwick registered six goals, 21 assists and a plus/minus rating of +15 in 53 games during his rookie season in 2008-09. His 27 points placed him third amongst Bruins defensemen and he scored his first NHL goal on November 17, 2008 against the Maple Leafs. Hunwick played forward in six games last year and posted 1-1-2 totals while skating up front.

Did he take a discount because he doesn't have a spleen?

The Bruins are actually taking Phil Kessel's bladder out in hopes that it will save them a few bucks.

NHL.com just dropped his weight.

Good for Boston though, they needed to re-sign this guy. Hopefully for them he doesn't eat too much of their cap.

I actually have a serious question here, is not having a spleen going to create long term problems?

Only Peter Forsberg can answer that question.

The outcome of this surgery varies. It depends on what disease or injuries you have. People who do not have other severe injuries or medical problems usually recover after this surgery.

After your spleen is removed, you will be more likely to get infections. Talk with your doctor about getting needed vaccinations. Children especially may need to take antibiotic drugs to prevent infections. Most adults do not usually need antibiotics long-term.



seems like he'll be alright

Two years, 1.2 cap hit (per season). My speculative guess.

It would be a great deal for Bruins, in my opinion... I'm expecting a lot more.

eh. I estimate his hit to be around 1.5 mill/year
manly because he showed a lot of promise but then was sidelined. he also didn't play the entire season, which hurts his overall value.

NHLPA hasn't been too accurate lately, just putting last years #s for players.

That's not fair, isn't he already out a testicle?

Matt Hunwick and the Bruins avoided arbitration with a two-year deal that will pay the defenseman $1.35 million next season and $1.55 million in 2010-11. The two sides were set to go to arbitration on Friday.
$1.45 million cap hit.

good contract,

I was thinking Vancouver should have given him a 3 yr 6mil offer sheet (before he file for arbitration of coarse)

If this had been a Showcase Showdown based on the rules of The Price is Right, BananaPhone would have been declared the winning bidder by Battlin' Bob Barker.

I think this has been answered but the spleen basically stores extra blood in case of an emergency. As far as I know, you can live a perfectly normal lifespan without one.

I think we will still be an RFA at the end of this, like Krejci.

He's 24-years-old now, so he will be 26 when the deal expires and he won't have 7 years of pro experience.
