In response to Not-A-Shot's comment:
I just remembered this.
Last night on the radio, Bob Beers mentioned in passing that unconfirmed reports have the B's in negotiation with Bergeron for an eight year deal. He emphasized how unconfirmed it was, calling it rumblings and whatever else. It's not like Beers is going to say something on the air that is completely false.
Bergeron for eight years? He'd be 37 when the deal ended. Sort of fitting, I suppose. That's a hell of a long time to commit to any player, but I think we know what this one brings. Unlike the snipers that fall from grace quickly, Bergeron's talents can translate into the skills of an older player as well.
Eight years, huh? I'm in.
Make it happen.
I am in with a permanent Bergy and better yet an extension for Rask will be a bonus. If this is true then no Horton, and i am Ok with that. Marchand and Bergy can make all rookies look good, looking forward to future of the Bruins. Maybe i can see if this soderberg kid is a real deal next season if he is put on the bergy marchand line next season.
Hopefully Seguin will be the 1st line RW. Time will tell, now i just want bruins to win this years cup.
wait what? no this doesn't have anything to do with Horton. Horton is a UFA this year, bergeron, next year. There is literally 0 correlation between the two contracts. Lastly, Soderberg can't play RW. He's practically blind in one eye, so don't expect him to be with bergy and marchand.
