Bruins re-sign a pair
The Boston Bruins officially announced the re-signing of forwards Chris Kelly and Gregory Campbell for deals worth $3 million and $1.6 million respectively.
These are both good deals for the Bruins as both Kelly and Campbell, reliable yet unspectacular players, would have drawn interest and possibly more money from other teams in free agency.
Bruns general manager Peter Chiarelli is very pleased to re-sign a pair of very valuable role players.
"These two guys to want to come back, and Kells is another guy as a centerman that had he gone to the market he would've got much more money than this," Chiarelli said. "It's kind of a feel-good story in these two players and I'm happy to get them done at this time. They're two really important pieces to our team."
Bruins fans should also be happy to see Kelly and Campbell back in Boston next season, they may not be stars but they have proved time and time again that they are key contributors to teams with Stanley Cup aspirations.
Kevin Garnett has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for failing to make himself available to the press after Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals last Firday, a 101-88 Celtics loss.
Waters sits out
Patriots guard Brian Waters was missing from the team's mini camp this week for what head coach Bill Belichick called an excused absence. Waters, absence, however, should be a concern to Patriots fans as the All Pro guard has tossed around the idea of retirement according to reports.
Waters was one of the most consistent players on the Patriots offensive line and he will be tough to replace if he chooses to retire.
