The bidding period on Brandon Saad has ended. However, we just now discovered that Boston's last bid was actually invalid, as the SB offered was just a hair over the 25% maximum allowed.
Since only two teams were vying for this player and we missed it being invalid until the 48-hour period had elapsed, and after talking to the TBL general manager to be fair to both teams involved, Boston will be allowed to sign Brandon Saad to 3-year contract worth $7,800,000 per year with a $5,850,000 signing bonus (YCV of $9.75 mil, vs the $9.8 mil posted above).
In addition, again to be fair to the process, the Bruins will be fined $250,000 for posting an incorrect bid leading to a signing. This fine will not appear on the GM Activity Page nor count against the "TV Deal" payout threshold for fines.
