More on Kessel Signing

The Bruins announced they signed their 1st round pick Phil Kessel to a 3 year deal. He will earn $850,000 every year, and it also includes a $85,000 dollar signing bonus that will count against the cap this year. He can also earn bonus performance money like Alexander Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby did. If he is sent down to the AHL which he can since it is a 2 way deal, he will earn the maximum $62,500. This signing probably means a) he will play LW with Savard and
Murray this year or b) he will be sent down to Providence and look for the Bruins to try and trade for or sign a LW for Savard.
