Next Contract On The Mind Of Andrew Ference

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe,

“I’ve put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into this team,” Ference said. “The makeup and the fabric of this room – the environment.”

Ference’s time in Boston, however, may be ending. He is in the final season of a three-year, $6.75 million contract. Ference, Nathan Horton, and Anton Khudobin are scheduled to become unrestricted free agents after this season.

Ference will be 34 March 17. His next deal might be his last crack at a multi-year contract. So it is quite expected that Ference’s next contract is very much on his mind.

“My radar? Yeah. Of course. This is my career,” Ference said when asked if he’s been thinking about a deal. “It has been going all the way back to the moment that we had the ability to extend. As a player, you want to have some grasp of your future.”

I’ll trade Queasey for him in a heartbeat.  Big body, heavy shot, responsible, cheap.  Whites a puck mover, Kronners, Smith, Ericsson, Colaiacovo, Kindl.. That’s why players like Lashoff and Huskins were having success on the team, they fill a need better than some “skilled’ defenders we have coughquinceycough.
