Wideman deal close

According to the Boston Globe, the Bruins are close to signing Dennis Wideman to a deal.  It is believed that the money is pretty much agreed on, but the difference lies in the length of the deal.  The deal will likely be between 2.8 and 3.5 million annually.

that's a lot of money for Wideman..but since this market is messed up you might as well time him down to a multi year deal

no kidding. that's why I'm saying to lock him in for 3-4 years

Paying $3 million a year for a guy that played over 25 minutes a game, with time on the power play and pk isn't all that bad. I dont't think that's overpaying. See: Bryan McCabe for that.

He's almost making as much money as Jeff Finger with the leafs...I think his first name is Jeff...LOL!

Da wreck said it best. He falls in the category of young and puck moving with a good point shot, which brings his value to at least 2.5 in this market.

He may not be a shining star yet, but he'll be here for a while, if the Bruins are smart.

Nice deal for the Bruins. They should lock him up for 5 years between 3-4 million. Will be a steal in the future. Even 3 million is good for Wideman. he was a major player for us last year, and the only player that could be trusted for offense.

Are Defence is crap we throw all are money at Ryder last time I looked he doesntplay defence and to top it off this guy doesnt even back check. maybe we didnt score a lot but did you ever think thats because we cant get the puck out of our own end. We should have thrown all are money at Campbell. Now Im hoping we can at lease land Schneider so we can get one crisp pass coming out of are end so we can use are fast fowards. FALLSE ONTARIO

really...we have terrible defense...what team were you watching fallse? im pretty sure we reformed the defense last year and had a pretty decent core...but you probably got the bruins confused with the laffs up in toronto...easy to see being from toronto and not having the bruins on tv...think before you speak

i was under the impression the bruins had one of the lowest goals against in the league? yes? no? doesn't sound like a horrible defence to me. we also had one of the lowest goals for. yes? no? sounds like we are struggling offensively... maybe our offence is the problem, not our defence... keeping wideman is pretty huge. he was one of our top defenceman. and imo with ryder being coached by julien again, his defensive game is going to step up huge. look at how kessel has improved in the department

Dude HD center ice just because it was better then last year doesnt mean are defence is it also comes down to coaching HELLO what a deference. BERGIE 37 do you have a clue COUNT how many Canadiens are on the bruins and Almost all your Star players are from CANADA. I have to hear Smack from Leaf Fans all year and now on a bruins site from another LEAF FAN THAT ONLY WISH BERGERON 37 WAS ON HIS TEAM FALLSE ONTARIO KNOW WHERE CLOSE TO TORONTO FOR ANY OTHER HELMET HEADS OUT THERE.

this blog has gotten so unreliable and ridiculous it's silly.

Anybody who says that this team is deep has no idea what hockey is. The only thing that this team is deep in is:

-mediocre players, and
-debt with ridiculous salaries.

That being said, Michael Ryder has a snipe shot and will have a decent year. Any clown who believes Murray has anything left is an idiot. Blake Wheeler will have a big impact on the team this year.

They will probably lock up the 8th seed again. People who actually believe they will be contenders this year should probably just go end their life.

haha thanks for you comment anonymous. your positivity is appreciated. you should probably go fuck yourself. the bruins may not have the depth of, say, detroit, but that doesn't mean this team doesn't have depth. you're a sack of shit. this team is extremely young and as the years go on, the team will get stronger and stronger. at this point we may not have a chance at winning a cup but a couple years down the road we will. go back to watching baseball cuntbag.

Blogger Jefe77 said...

Uhhh, I have to agree with Bruinsfan23, we ARE deep, and have drafted well. Lashoff will pan out, and what frame of reference do you have on young players like him?

You reek of someone who has merely researched names, and a few stats.

Check your facts, or are you just another numbnut leafs or habs fan trying to create havoc?

Oh, right, lets pick up Schneider. Can we go ahead and pay for his med bills up front? Can we hospitalize him for the first half of the season, then activate him and his wheelchair?

Let me guess! You play EA NHL 2008, and your pretty good!!!

Thank god we have fruitnecks like YOU running the Bruins.

No rumors but the schedules were released today. B's have a brutal season opening road trip that starts in Colorado hits Minnesota, Ottawa, Buffalo, a Montreal home opener, and the B's open up at home against Pitt..

Developement camp sounds promising. It is going to be fun to watch these young guys mature into NHL Hockey Players.

Still wondering what is up with Wideman. When are they going to sign him? What's the hold up? What is going to happen to Murray?

When is there going to be another post MATT this one is going nowhere
