ESPN Boston's Joe McDonald reported on October 4 that "there's a no-trade clause for the first 2 1/2 years, then it's a partial no-trade clause for the remainder of the contract."
McDonald was able to get a hold of Seidenberg moments after the Bruins' 3-1 season-opening home victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning to get his take on the matter.
Seidenberg said,"It makes me really happy, and on top of it we won the game."
"I have a lot of fun playing here. The coaches have trust in me and that's the most important thing. I mean, if I go somehwere else for a lot of money and things don't work out that way, it's always -- I think the on-ice situation is the most important part.
"We have a good team here and in the future I think we're going to be good for a lot of years."
For his part, Chiarelli says Seidenberg is a great fit for the Bruins.
"He plays our style. Heavy game. Heavy game that we like. He's been a warrior for us. There's a lot of things he has that are compatible with the way we want to play.
"He's 32, but we feel he's in very good condition, takes care of himself. Frankly, he wanted to stay here. Easier to get done for that reason."
On top of his 34 goals and 188 career points, he also has 242 penalty minutes and a plus-14 rating.
