Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli was a brief guest of TradeCentre with James Duthie on TSN this afternoon, some 90 minutes before the arrival of the trade deadline.
When asked if he was done dealing, Chiarelli said:
“We’re tinkering a little bit on some minor, minor depth [deals],” said the GM, who made his major splash a week and a half ago with his acquisitions of Tomas Kaberle and Rich Peverley.
So that might be some good news for the Providence Bruins and their fans, but as far as the NHL product, it sounds like what you see now is what you’ll get when the team takes the ice in Ottawa tomorrow night.
As far as whether that would change if some of Boston’s toughest competitors made major improvements between now and the deadline, Chiarelli said:
“We’re not going to react because we’re satisfied with the moves we’ve made so far.”
