The Boston Bruins have signed forward Marc Savard to a 7-year contract extension, with an annual salary cap hit of $4.2 million. Brochu's take: Not a bad cap hit for a centre that can get you 80-90 points a season. This should help alleviate the Bruins' cap woes, but they need some more firepower in their lineup.
The Philadelphia Flyers have signed defenseman Oskars Bartulis to a three-year, $1.8 million contract extension.
The Anaheim Ducks have placed forward Erik Christenson on waivers.
The San Jose Sharks have claimed defenseman Jay Leach off waivers from the Montreal Canadiens.
