Bergeron signs – 3 years $15 million

Patrice Bergeron has signed a contract extension with the Bruins, which is worth a reported 3 years and $15million.  Bergeron has looked great this entire preseason and will have to pick up the offensive slack with Marc Savard sidelined with a concussion.  With Bergeron now locked up the Bruins have an excess of centers locked up for years to come.  Savard is signed through 2017, Bergeron is now signed through 2014, and Krejci is signed through 2012.  Krejci remains a restricted free agent after his deal is completed.  Next season and the years following, Tyler Seguin and Joe Colborne may find themselves playing wing unless one of the centers ahead of them are moved.

    Not a bad deal. Does this suggest that the B’s are essentaily establishing a 3year window hear to win it all? Cause now they have Krejci for 2 years Seguin for 3, lucic for 3, and now Bergy for 3. I still see chara getting a 5-7 year deal though.

    Love it…absolutely love it….could be longer but at slight raise is ok for me. Beleive me when I say that this will be Bergies best year ever.
    What do people think of a Horton-Bergeron-Recchi line?
    Just wondering?!

    • Bruins says:

      I like Horton with DK, but he could be a good fit with Bergeron too.

      Like I’ve been saying for a while now I’d like to see a Lucic-Bergeron-Caron line in the future.

  3. Bruins says:

    For what Bergeron provides this team I think that cap hit is a bargain, especially on a short deal like that. Let’s face it, he was the best Bruin on the ice in about 90% of the games last season. He could have cleaned up on the open market.

      • Andy says:

        You’re right, the cat doesn’t make any sense…and it DOESN’T have to!! Classic!

        Who put that together?

        I would’ve put someting in about Seguin – kind of a “come here, kid. Meet your new partners”, with a pic of Ryder & Wheeler (even though he’s on Bergy’s line for now).

        Fucking TOMORROW, boys! Can’t believe it’s here already!

      • Jefe77 says:

        Its Patrice “Purrgeron”….funny shit

      • Bruins says:

        Seguin is in it. He’s the little kid that Julien’s talking to at 1:35.

    • Hendrik says:

      I always said Bergeron looks like Al Pacino. That rifle looks great with “Michael Corleone” 😀

    Too bad they didn’t have McGrattan on that too….would have been a nice cherry on top!
    Is this years slogan “Unfinished Business”?

  6. CCMGoalie says:

    Pretty solid idea for the 2010-2011 Slogan, I think. I’m loving having our top 3 centers locked in for the next three years. That allows so much more time for Seguin to develop whether it be out on a wing or centering in small stints. I’m thinking this season our offense (barring major injuries) will be pretty lethal, Lucic, Krejci, Horton is going to be a deadly combo and our Defense pretty solid all around. OUr goaltending is going to be reminiscent of Moog-Lemelin with Thomas pushing Rask for the starting job. I still think Rask will take most of the work probably starting 50+ games and Thomas picking up the rest. I’m thinking a Jennings trophy run is in the works here.

  13. Gcole says:

    I was just thinking… Imagine a game va Philly Montreal or whoever and the game gets dirty, and the bruins can send out a line like
    Mcgratton. Thornton. Lucic. With zdeno and boychuk/Stuart out. NO ONE CAN FUCK WITH THAT
