I want to be the first to say called it. I compared it to Tkachuk this summer. Great deal!

That QO is gonna be tough, but for now it's a good deal

Edit: under the new QO rule it's not actually that tough really...

Great deal there. If only the Bruins didn't mess up the 2015 draft.

Why was it so long, we all knew that Matthew Tkachuk and Point were the comparable for a bridge deal

Meanwhile Griffin Reinhart isn't even playing this year after pulling pud for a Chinese hockey team.

The new QO rule, is the lower number of the following, 100% of base salary in the last year of the deal or 120% of the caphit so $8,4 millions

A 3 year term for a Barzal bridge is an excellent deal. That 3rd year could be incredibly valuable to the Isles when the cap goes up again.

Good deal for both. Barzy has to be happy with $7 mil before he even get his big pay day, Isles are happy to still have him as an RFA. I do have a feeling the Isles might regret not being able to lock him up longterm at the end of this deal. They will be looking at a 7x11 and they still have a lot of guys on the books in 3 years and other players they need to sign.

Pretty sweet deal for Barzal. He's obviously their best offensive player and he's a great skater, but he's not good in his own zone.

The real stinkers from the Snow era are going to finally vanish after Barzal's 3rd year. That's what the Isles are waiting for.

if BOS didn't mess up they wouldn't be able to afford him, chabot and debrusk/connor. Let alone the whole future of the bruins from that draft day alters if you want to get really technical with it. All the trades, signings, drafted players, outcome of games, etc... all get affected.

Oh man, the days of Matt Duchene 8x8 are so over. At least they should be.
