Brad Marchand: Four-Year Extension With Bruins
Update: The Bruins have signed Marchand to a four-year contract extension through the 2016-17 season, the Bruins' official site reports. The report notes that his deal will be worth an average of $4.5 million a year.

Recommendation: Marchand, who recorded 28/27/55 totals, along with 87 penalty minutes in 76 games this past season, has a well-earned reputation as a pesky agitator, but beyond that he brings speed, energy and solid puck skills to the table and a modest bump in his scoring numbers this season could be in the cards, as he continues to gain experience.
