Bergeron Set to Sign a 4-5 Year Deal Instead
Patrice Bergeron is expected to sign a 4-5 year deal later this week, not the 3 year deal reported earlier. The 4 year version of the deal is worth around 3.5 million a year, and would end in 2010, the year Patrice would enter UFA status. The 5 year version of the deal would be worth an average of around 4.5 million dollars because it enters one year of Bergeron's UFA status. With this signing, the Bruins would enter around 43 million dollars on the cap, but minus Zhamnov's injury it will go back down to 39, 5 million under.
