Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli talked again today with the media in Los Angeles about the slight difference his staff has between Taylor Hall and Tyler Seguin and how he’s not desperate to trade up with Edmonton.
“I’m not in a position right now, based on how big I feel and how big our group feels the gap is,” he said. “I’m not in a position right now. I don’t know if I ever will be, to go to Edmonton and say, ‘Here’s this, this, this, and this, let us take our guy.’ I think those players are so good at that 1-2 that it’s not worth, to me, to go and give something where I think I could get something somewhere else.”
He later added, and this was the best part: “I’m not jumping over chairs to get that player.”
