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.

Report: Bruins Re-sign Defenseman Dennis Seidenberg to Four-Year Contract Extension

The Boston Bruins have reportedly signed defenseman Dennis Seidenberg to a four-year contract extension. TSN’s Darren Dreger reported on Thursday that the deal is worth a total of $16 million and also has a no-trade clause. ESPN Boston’s Joe McDonald confirmed the report.

Stability Reigns: Bruins Extend Dennis Seidenberg

Elsa / Getty Images By Mitch Cole (@DirtyWaterBuzz) For Dennis Seidenberg, finding a long term deal wasn’t easy for most of his career. After debuting with the Flyers in the 2002-2003 season, Seidenberg never played more than three years with an NHL team. Two midseason trades saw the German defender eventually land as a free agent looking for a contract when training camp opened...

Jarome Iginla becomes a Bruin in a minute

It was a fairly clean hit set up by an extremely poor pass by Milan Lucic that left Jarome Iginla out to dry in open-ice. Instead of taking the hit, Iginla turned to the man who hit him, said a couple of words, and dropped the gloves. Suddenly, one of the most hated players in the Bruins’ fan-base on account of his “choice” at last years trade deadline endeared himself to Bruins...

It's Stanley Cup or bust for the Boston Bruins

  The season begins for the Boston Bruins tonight, as they face-off against the Tampa Bay Lightning. For the B’s, the expectations are at an all time high, as the front office have put together a team that seems to be the deepest in the NHL.   “Were trying to build a winner and those are where our expectations are!” was stated by GM Peter Chiarelli. The Bruins had to go through...

Shorthanded Goals by Patrice Bergeron, Chris Kelly Power Bruins Past Lightning in Opener (Video)

The Bruins spent a lot of time in the penalty box Thursday night, but they were bailed out by some stellar penalty killing. Two of Boston’s goals in a 3-1 victory over Tampa Bay were of the shorthanded variety — Chris Kelly‘s coming on a penalty shot — and the Lightning were unsuccessful on all five of their power-play opportunities. Patrice Bergeron added the second shorthanded...

Chris Kelly rediscovers scoring touch

Hockey is a game of inches full of heartbreak and heroes. Chris Kelly has been on both sides of the equation. Last season was tough on the Bruins center. After scoring a career-high 20 goals in 2011-12 Kelly finished with three in the strike-shortened 2012-13 season. He added two goals in the Stanley Cup finals but it’s the one he missed against the Blackhawks in Game 4 that remains...

Ty Anderson: Extension a win-win for Seidenberg, Bruins

In the summer of 2009, defensemen Dennis Seidenberg’s first dip into the unpredictable waters of unrestricted free agency didn’t necessarily go his way. Not at all, in fact. A standout on the Carolina Hurricanes’ improbable run to the 2009 Eastern Conference Finals -- stunning Boston in seven games in round two -- the German-born blue-liner hit the open market...

Zdeno Chara Fantasy Hockey Picks 2013 2014

Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins is the #9 defense points-only hockey pool pick. He is a Slovakian born player who is 36 years old. He is a beast on the backend. ‘Big Z’ has the hardest shot in the league that is low and accurate, putting fear into his opponents. He is also effective with his breakout passes and his team is a strong contender. A downside to drafting is he is old and may

Snippets from Media Day

The Bruins just finished up with Media Day here at TD Garden and there were a few newsy tidbits to come out of the season. David Krejci who suffered back spasms on Friday in Saskatoon skated for the first time since the injury. He said he'll be a game-time decision but that his back has improved. As he said "Every single day I woke up it felt much better. I'm expecting...

Bruins Penalty Kill Leads Way in Season-Opening Victory Over Lightning (Video)

The Boston Bruins started the 2013-14 season with a 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night in front of the hometown fans at TD Garden. The key to the B’s win was a remarkable performance on the penalty kill.

Forward Carl Soderberg was the only Bruins player missing from Friday's practice at the TD Garden a day after defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-1 in their season-opener. Soderberg is recovering from an ankle injury and was replaced by Jordan Caron in the lineup on Thursday night.

F**k Baseball, It's Hockey Season. BRUINS WIN!

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm hockey is back. The Bruins are back (pre-season doesn't count, those games are meaningless and barely anyone actually tries).  Seems like the Bruins lines are still a little out of synch for the most part, but it's only the first game of a long season. The penalty kill was still amazing. Two shorthanded goals for the B's.  No point really focusing...

Jarome Iginla Drops Gloves in First Bruins Game, Scraps With Radko Gudas (Video)

Jarome Iginla waited a mere 19 minutes before dropping the gloves for his first fight in black and gold. Just before the midway point of the second period in Boston’s season opener Thursday night, Iginla was leveled near the boards by Tampa Bay defenseman Radko Gudas. The hit was clean, but the new Bruin was not pleased with it, and he chose to use some fisticuffs to settle the...
