How could I not use this photo I mean really

The Bruins announced on Friday morning that they have extended Brad Marchand's contract through the 2016-2017 season. Marchand, whose current contract was set to expire after the 2012-2013 season, will make an average of $4.5M over the following four years. It's a significant increase over the $2.5M annual cap hit from his current contract.

Marchand, a native of Halifax, NS, followed up a Stanley Cup win with a 55 point campaign last year, scoring 28 goals and recording 27 assists in 76 games. He scored one goal and recorded one assist in the Bruins' first round playoff series against the Washington Capitals.

Milan Lucic, Tuukka Rask, Jordan Caron, and Tyler Seguin are the team's remaining players set to become RFAs; Nathan Horton and Andrew Ference are the team's pending UFAs.
