Does signing a 29 year old 5'9 guy to a 6 year 6 mill contract a smart move?

Probably, because he'll be a good player until the end of his contract. I think if krug get another good year he can have 6.5-7.5m on the market for 5-7 years.

Sad part is he’s going to get way more.

As for Sweeney being a genius, I wouldn’t go that far. He’s been very good at re-signing his own players, but he’s done horribly in the trade market and UFA market. His big signings are Beleskey, Backes, and John Moore. He found McAvoy and Carlo in the draft, but also skipped over Chabot, Connor, Barzal, Boeser etc TWICE to draft Senyshyn and Zboril. Genius? No. Awesome at re-signing his own players? You bet.

Senyshyn is a bad pick, zboril ain’t everybody projected him
Where he was drafted he just turn to be bad
But in the sameness draft you draft Carlo in the second round so the draft is gambling in a certain way

Bcarlo25 took the words right out of my mouth. Look no further than the 2015 draft. I realize drafting is very difficult when trying to project kids development, but a blindfold and a dart board could have fetched better results than what Sweenius did that draft day.

Normally I’d cut a GM some slack if a guy that was projected high didn’t pan out, buuuuut two seconds later he picked a guy projected in the mid 40s at 15, so he didn’t care about projections. That’s his pick, it was crap. I think he’s done well with some other picks, but man, that was bad.

question - do the bruins have anyone that could replace krejci and bergeron? i'd be a little worried if the top two centers were in their mid 30s and not having anyone that could step up.

Studnicka.

Beyond that, JFK is a pretty good player, he’s taking a couple years in Sweden, but has always said he plans to return to the bruins. Studnicka is the heir apparent to Bergeron in my opinion. He’s a stud.

Something else that should be mentioned is that Sweeney certainly doesn't work alone. He has scouts and assistants and all sorts of eyes and ears. Sure, he makes the final call on decisions, but those decisions are based on intel that his staff has gathered. So while we can easily dump on Sweeney, it's also the staff around him that screwed things up in that draft. Much like all credit can't be given to one guy, nor can all the blame.

those moves were in the early years of him being a gm. Was it bc he was unexperienced with the job....maybe, but ever since the rick nash trade, everything he’s done has been pretty solid, hence the gm of the yr award this season.

Oh god, i forgot about how awful that trade was. Sweeney has definitely been better since that trade, that’s really only a year and a bit though. He’s done some great stuff, but he isn’t perfect, and personally I didn’t think that a GM that had like 14 million or something like that not on the ice for the last game of the Stanley cup didn’t deserve GM of the year.
