08:27 AM ET 06.19 | So much for this being the season of change in some NHL cities. It could be a pretty quiet week for Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli and his front office cohorts. They'll be jumping on a plane and heading to Pittsburgh with five draft picks in hand, and that might be the limit of their activity. Trade talks typically whip up while the brain trust of all 30 teams are gathered in one city for the NHL draft, and Chiarelli admitted that the trade chatter has been flowing freely in recent days. But the Bruins don't currently have many openings on a roster packed with 17 players remaining from the Stanley Cup-winning team, and the Boston GM said he wasn't likely to make any deals this weekend.

It's called not tipping your hand and unlike some other GM's Peter doesn't feel the need to tell the press about his every thought.

It's also called sports writers being bored and making stuff up

If the Bruins aren't going to make any trades, they must feel that Nathan Horton will be 100% healthy.

"Trade winds may pass through Boston"

Might be a combination of a Hurricane with Lightning which may spark some Flames, which will keep the Wings of the Jets grounded. There will be no Flyers for a few days. No danger of Avalanche in Boston though but, they might not see the Stars for a while. There might be a lot of falling Leafs which will make the Panthers growl, the Coyotes howl, the Hawks prowl which will send the Ducks quacking. Even the Senators will protest out of Hab-it because there will be an Oil spill which will polute the waters for the Sharks. That day will be Wild enough to make you wanna pack your Rags, leave the Islanders behind and move to Canackistan. It will be a Devil of a day! Enough to make you want to sing the Blues;-)

It's hard to say. There really hasn't been any news of late coming from the Bruins in regard to Horton's condition.

Boston just needs a 3rd line winger and a 3rd pairing d-man...i say let the AHL kids battle it out for those positions.....Bostons still a pretty deep club..arguably 1 of the deepest in the league.

as it should be.....I agree with this

Good job.

Not that the Bruins need to make any moves, but Parise would fit in very well there.

Obviously Parise would "fit" in very well on any team. The Bruins depth will be answered next season with their superstar goalie taking a FFF year off.

That's what I was thinking as well. Not sure what team Parise wouldn't be a fit for. And if I am Boston I am more concerned with goaltending, just because who knows if their new #1 can hold up for a full season, and their #2 if he is good, whoever he ends up being.
