Chiarelli moving in bulk

As reported in the Bruins blog, Peter Chiarelli continued to ship out parts of what he clearly believes is a currently dysfunctional organization and a team in the midst of a pretty significant overhaul. First Dave Lewis and now GM Jeff Gorton and Daniel Dore, who is widely considered to be a top-notch scout. Apparently Chiarelli isn't among that Dore fan club.

I'm not against the moves Chiarelli is making right now - something obviously needs to be done, correction, has needed to be done for quite some time. I'm not sure getting rid of all management personell, many of whom I'm sure were well respected, is the way to solve all the Bruins problems. The problem, in my opinion, is on the ice - and yes I know there's talent there but not enough of it. I certainly support the coaching change and in time, we'll all have a better idea of what kind of environment Chiarelli is trying to create.

Back to the players, University of Michigan product defenseman Matt Hunwick was signed by the Bs and hopes to make the team for the upcoming season. Hunwick put up pretty solid numbers for a defenseman over 126 games in four years - 24 goals and 73 assists for 97 points. Lots of defensemen on board in Boston...if only we had a goalie.
