Bruins to buy out Dennis Seidenberg

From TSN’s Bob McKenzie:

The cap hits for the Bruins for the next four years:
2016-2017: $1,166,666.00
2017-2018: $2,166,666.00
2018-2019: $1,166,666.00
2019-2020: $1,166,666.00

Aaron Ward reports:

Seidenberg’s full no-movement clause made him, well, immoveable. His poor play and injury problems last season made him undesirable. There likely wasn’t any chance of him being claimed by Las Vegas in the expansion draft, or any trade partners for him when his NMC would be come a limited NTC on January 1. The cap hit is painful, especially in the second year of the buyout, but it appears that the B’s management saw a buyout as the only way to move forward.

That said, he was a crucial part of the Bruins’ Cup run in 2011 and he was a veteran leader for the team. Many, many thanks to Der Hammer for his time with the B’s and for bringing the Cup home to Boston.
