    Love it. Pumped to have him around on the 3rd pair for a few more years. Him and Miller were awesome together. More of that please.

    Nothing to complain about here, very solid value for what he brings to the table.

    OK, it's hot now, AZ
    Cap Friendly shows his minors salary also at 1.4M, so it looks like it's a one way. I don't see anywhere in the tweet that says 2-way.

    Griz has played 74 NHL games therefore requires waivers to be sent down. Don't think the Bruins would risk that so it's most likely a one-way deal

    I doubt he would sign a 2-way deal at this point.

    Wow, great news! The deal leaves some money open for other signings and won't hammer the Bs too much if Grizz doesn't follow up last season with another good season or two. I expect him to keep improving, though.

    My concern is... i dont want krug in top pair... and i dont want chara in top pair

    Now is grezlyck going to be a huge value top pair guy or a very expensive 7th dman?

    Maybe krug gets moved and we end up very happy with grezlyck? But i just dont like the mix we have now if we are keeping everyone

    In a vacuum... good signing... but makes me wonder what the next shoe to drop

    I'm gonna be the wet blanket...

    I (and most others) was of the mindset that one of Krug or Grzelcyk was going to be dealt this offseason. My opinion was that the obvious move was the latter option.

    Looks like we're moving Krug now and mark my words... That's gonna hurt.

    I don't want to turn it into THAT thread. This one should be about Grzelcyk and how impressive he was during the season (he was excellent) and how he earned the extension (he absolutely did). He's a good kid and I like him a lot.

    I would not have have signed him.

    i'm assuming he doesn't have any sort of NTC or NMC. signing him doesn't mean they can't trade him. in fact this deal is reasonable enough that it arguably makes him easier to trade.

    Is it a sign that they want to trade him though, or that they want to keep him? To me it's obviously the former.

    And as a team looking to trade for a player, I'd much rather work out the new deal on my own terms than have them dictated to me.

    I don't see the chances of him being dealt this offseason as being much higher than zero.

    Good deal. Makes him a very marketable player if they chose to deal him. Not even bad price for a 7th defenseman, which hopefully some of the younger players push him down to

    Players can't sign an NTC or NMC until they are a group 3 UFA (7 yrs in NHL or age 27).

    This is a great deal. I was thinking 3 yrs at $2m per. It's very similar to what Krug signed before his current contract and it lets the Bruins see what they really have in him.

    FWIW from NHL.COM Sweeny said ,

    "Look, you never know. I'm not actively shopping Torey. People call on a lot of different guys that we have. I have private conversations with each and every general manager, but we value what Torey brings to the table. It's very difficult to replace a 60-point guy. He's grown with our organization. He's grown into a leadership role on and off the ice. He's a big part of our success. I'd say it's unlikely."
    Bruins hope to jump into first round at NHL Draft

    We've heard this one before from many a GM , i.e. Bergevin just before trading P.K.

    Good deal. I'm not sold on the player as much as others and it is because of his size.

    Solid signing. Dude killed his matchups when he was on the ice 5v5. If I remember correctly he was on the ice for 44 goals for and only 18 goals against. Dominated his matchup, it was 3rd line but that’s the assignment he was given and killed it

    Nice signing. I was shocked at his play last season, didn’t care much for his play prior to that. Interested to see how he continues to develop.

    Love this signing, kid was great last year. Brings solid offense and surprisingly good d. Love him on the third pair with Miller, but even ok with him on the 2nd pair with Carlo. It is going to be interesting to see how the line up plays out. Worst case scenario I think we will be fine rolling with Chara-McAvoy, Krug-Carlo, Gryz-Miller, McQuaid one more year.

    I have read both Vaak and Zboril are ok playing the right side. Would love if some how one of those two got some playing time with Chara- was such great experience for McAvoy and Carlo. Then enventualy playing on the top pair with McAvoy. That leaves a big hole on the top pair for the time being though.

    Nice term and number for a player who, for this fan, was a complete surprise in regards to what impact he might with the B`s. Simply thought he`d be a band aid but I was way off which is hardly a shock
