Yesterday with about an hour until puck drop the Bruins and defenseman Dennis Seidenberg were busy handling business off of the ice. The team announced that Seidenberg agreed to a four year contract extension that will pay him $4 million dollars per year. Honestly, it's a huge hometown discount given that he's making $3.25M this season and could have potentially gotten a lot more on the open market.
After this season, Seidenberg will be the second highest paid defenseman on the team behind Zdeno Chara. If there was something I had to nitpick about this contract, it's giving a player in his early 30's a full No Movement Clause as he heads into the downslope of his career.
