Im honestly shocked people are going to dislike the contract but they had to.

Try some punctuation and a few additional words for clarity...

I'm honestly shocked.

People are going to dislike the contract, but the Flames had to do it.

Looks like Bergeron is re-signing with the Bs on a 2.5mil bargain deal.

He gets an extra 2.5mil if he plays 10+games this year. 

Good.

Even though he is a dastardly Bruin and I must hate him, I do appreciate what he brings to that team and the league.

Bergeron AND Krejci. Looks like the Bruins will have one more run in them after all. Taylor Hall probably really happy. So unless things go terribly wrong there forget about knocking them from the playoffs this year. 

They still have injury concerns with a bunch of their stars to start the year. They could be playing catch-up most of the season, and losing Cassidy will have some effects good or bad.

Marvin, that is addressed right in the tweet!

Yeah, my bad.  "Maybe."  Drain Bamage.

I don't know if I would go that far.

Yeah, well you're why Arthur is carving sandwiches instead of pursuing women.

Within the division this season:

Bergeron and Krejci are being paid less combined than Thompson and Mittelstadt this season. (Bold prediction: by the end of the season, that will be proven to be correct in terms of scoring output.) None of those 4 centers are on an ELC.

1st line? Bergeron and Thompson are being paid less combined than Charlie Coyle.

Top 2? Bergeron/Krejci and Thompson/Cozens combined are being paid less than any of Larkin, (and only outgain Copp by $170k), Barkov, Suzuki, Point, Stamkos, Matthews, or Tavares.

To be fair, they also do have some bonuses attached. I believe Boston has about 4.9 in eligible bonuses that are pretty attainable. They are currently over the cap, though LTIR will fix that. However, they won’t have cap left for bonuses, which is allowable (up to 7.5% of the cap), and the amount you go over is taken from next years cap space.

Yeah, they're all in on 1 last run and then a modest (or so they hope) tank the following year.
