According to RDS, Marc Savard is on the verge of signing an extension with the Bruins. The deal is rumored to be 39 million over 7 years for an annual cap hit of $5.57 million.
At the completion of this contract Savard will be 40 years old, so I’m not sure what to make of this deal. If the deal is front loaded with lower salaries at the end of the contract then it would be a good deal. Low salaries at the end of a contract will allow the Bruins to buyout the final year or two if necessary.
