In the world of professional sports, finding the right balance on contract terms can be a real challenge for both teams and players. When they can't see eye to eye on the price tag, it often leads to uneasy situations and less-than-ideal deals.

Despite this common struggle, the Boston Bruins appear to have fewer contract worries compared to some other teams. According to insights from Joe Yerdon at Bleacher Report, Brandon Carlo holds the title for the Bruins' trickiest contract, with a 4-year deal at $4.1 million per year.


It's important to note that labeling a contract as "the worst" isn't solely about its cost or duration. It can also reflect a player's performance during their contract period, among other factors.


Let's be honest here, Brandon Carlo's $4.1 million salary might seem a bit high when you consider he hasn't cracked the 20+ points mark in a single season. His closest was in 2019–20 when he managed 19 points in 67 games. Since then, his offensive output has been on a decline. Despite playing in 181 games, he's only tallied 35 points, consisting of 12 goals and 23 assists.
