Any other questions?

 

Sure, just to attempt to understand your logic.

 

Now you're saying that Johnson helped a Coyotes playoff push on the basis of 2 games? Smith helps them to 10 points in April, but those 3 points in games that Johnson played were the key?

 

On the basis of those 2 games, you think Johnson earned a 4-year deal? That about right?

Bergeron's contract is $6.5m a year for 8 years & Giroux's is $8.2m a year for 8 years. I'd rather have Bergeron's contract. He is only a year & a half older than Giroux, has won a stanley cup, reached a second final, won gold in the olympics and world championships. The guy is a freakin' gamer! He is Boston's Zetter.


You gotta be the QB to win the MVP baby! You can't be the punter.

One of my favorite non-Wings player. I think he's in that category of players you build your team around because of his great two-way play. He's pretty much Boston's Zetterberg like freshy said. I think this is a great deal for the Bruins.

Smith DIDN'T help them by losing to Detroit in the heat of a playoff battle, against one of the team's trying to steal their spot. And he's signed to a hefty deal. 

I think Johnson's progression with Connecticut is key, too. He's gotten better at each level of competition. He was also the best goalie in their system.  But yes, those two games DEFINITELY helped his status, in my opinion.  And he faced 100+ shots against NHL competition and did very well.  It was a good tryout and I think he passed the test.

I think Johnson's better than Gustavsson.

Giroux gave them no hometown-discount ( I wouldn't either), but Bergy basically gave Boston around 500k - 1kk that's a lot of cash on an annual basis, they pretty much got him for 8 million less if not more, the guy is pure class.

I am sure the Canadiens aren't too happy with that.

Here's a great article from The Score , regarding his physical maladies during the SC Final.

Ever wonder why it's the "Stanley Cup Final", yet it's the "NBA Final"?

I'm channelling George Carlin here.

Good player. Seems a bit high, but I guess that's what you gotta do to keep someone like that.

I thought he would have gotten more tbh.

Either way good deal for both sides.

As good as their top 6 is, they still don't have an elite center.  I would say they have a top 10 top 6, but not the best.
