Better cap hit than I expected, but short term. Long term (6 to 8 that bought UFA years) would have been a problem for the current cap (and signing Carlo too). The contract when expired leaves McAvoy as still an RFA, but escalates in the last year so that qualifying him would would cost $7.3M. Good for both sides.Next up Carlo, and there should be space for him.
And Carlo.All set.Honestly going to be tough for younger players to break into this defensive core, even with Miller and Moore hurt still.L/RChara, McAvoyKrug, CarloGrzelcyk, ?Clifton-R 24yo(19 NHL games last year), Kampfer-R 30yo(35 gmaes) have the best shot. Vaakanainen-L 20yo (2 games), Lauzon-L 22yo (16 games).I think the Bruins will look to move Kampfer. 2 years at 800K would make him an attractive depth or 3rd pairing for a lot of teams that lack either.
