Finally, some news!

It’s been a few days since anything of consiquence has happened in the Bruins world. But today the Bruins announced that Adam McQuaid, or Darth Quaider for you who aren’t fans of brevity (The Dude abides…) to a 3 year contract extension through the 2014-15′ season. McQuaid built up a cult following through solid defensive play, and the ability to personify what the Bruins were about as they marched to the cup.

McQuaid looks to build off his first full NHL season by bettering the 3-12-15 line he put up through 67 games. The Quaider also spent 96 minutes in the box (many of the 5 minute fighting variety) and lead all NHL rookies with a plus 30, also 5th in the league.

The Bruins also signed Craig Cunningham to an entry level contract, and signed Zach McKelvie to a 1 year deal.

    1.5 mil per? I like Quaider, but I don’t know if he’ll be a top 4 D. Solid defenisve D, but 1.5 mil. A little rich, IMO.

    What does that say about negotiations w/ LBOH? If I’m Marchand and they just paid our no. 5 D 1.5 mil, I’m thinking I deserve at least 3-3.5 mil per…

      There is no saga. There is nothing but plenty of time to figure everything out, and there is no need to trade him.
