Although there has been discussion that teams should wait until a new CBA is set before signing any of their players long term, the Bruins were not going to take any chances with Seguin.
Seguin is a former second overall pick and has proved he is worth the money. The deal will pay him an average of 5.75 million each season.
Last year Seguin, playing only in his second season in the NHL, was able to put up 67 points. That point total was good enough to lead the Bruins in that category.
Seguin is going to be a star in the league, if not already. He has shown his play will only continue to improve as he continues to grow.
Simply put, he is a world class talent.
He is a top line contributor and could easily be compared to some other top players in the league one day, including Steven Stamkos, Taylor Hall and John Tavares.
The deal is a great one for the Bruins and also pays Seguin his market price. Hall just recently signed with the Oilers to an extension that will pay him six million per year.
You can not blame the Bruins for wanting to make sure they will have their young superstar locked up for many years to come.
