The Boston Bruins have extended Defenseman, Kevan Millar, to a 4 year extension worth 10 million dollars. This contract extension really doesn’t make any sense to me. This guy is a player that they could of easily let go and saved the money for more of an impact player. I think 4 years, 10 millions for Miller is a high over payment. This past year was probably Miller’s worst year as a Bruin and he was also injured for 11 games. He scored 5 goals, which isn’t bad for a player like him, but in his career he’s only scored 8 total goals. 2.5 million a year for him is too much money for a player that scores as little as that.
Another reason this signing bugs me is that they already have a very similar player in Adam Mcquaid. They are both your typical defensive defenseman that are third pairing and you really need only one of those on your team. The Bruins should be worrying about who they are going to pair for the first paring defenseman. Chara and Seidenberg are getting older and aren’t the same players they used to be. The Bruins are in need of some young new Defenseman and they aren’t going to be able to get them if they keep on paying players like Kevan Miller. It’s still early in the off season but if they don’t add some new players it could be another long and frustrating year for this team.
