Bruins agree to multi-year deals with Kelly & Campbell

Despite Tim Thomas not returning next season, the Bruins are moving forward to  guarantee that most of their 2011 Stanley Cup winning core will be back, and for several years.

As reported by TSN, on Monday the Boston Bruins have agreed to terms with forwards Chris Kelly and Gregory Campbell on multi-year contract extensions.  Peter Chiarelli has made it a priority to keep as much of the championship core intact as possible.

These signings mean the Bruins will have 16 players from the 2011 Championship team back next season, with eight of them secured through 2014-15.

Do I have your attention now? Good.  Because that seems to be exactly what Todd Philips and the infamous Wolf Pack are saying as they start filming the third, and reportedly final, installment in The Hangover franchise later this month.
