Sources: Bruins, Marchand agree to two year deal
Bruins playoff hero and partying legend Brad Marchand has agreed to a two year, 5 million dollar deal with the club, according to sources. Marchand was a restricted free agent but had been at captain's practices with the club while negotiating as a restricted free agent. The deal pays the 23 year old Marchand 2 million this year and 3 million next which is quite a jump considering he just finished a three year 1.77 million dollar deal that he signed after he was drafted in 2007. Marchand, had 19 points in 25 playoff games to cap off a very solid rookie season and is now a legend in Boston with the pictures of him partying after the team won the Stanley Cup in June.
