After a mostly uneventful trade-deadline day, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli again addressed the status of contract talks with recently acquired defenseman Tomas Kaberle today.
A Tweet from a prominent national hockey writer earlier today claimed the Bruins planned to talk to Kaberle’s representation before the end of this season about an extension. But Chiarelli today reiterated what he said upon acquiring Kaberle, a potential unrestricted free agent this summer, that those talks will wait until the season is over.
“We both agreed to wait until the season is over,” Chiarelli told the assembled media in Ottawa. “Which was in a very positive light, so I’m very optimistic.”
