As expected, the Bruins and Blake Wheeler made it official today by agreeing to the $2.2 million, one-year award from the arbiter that was announced Thursday.

This was a fair ruling, and the Bruins aren’t in any bigger of a bind cap-wise than they were before the hearing. Considering Wheeler’s numbers and age in relation to comparable players and their production, the Bruins aren’t overpaying or underpaying for a legit top-six forward.

I’ll have more on as the weekend unfolds.
