Chiarelli: Nothing crazy expected in draft
By: DJ Bean

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said Thursday in Minnesota that he does not expect the team to do anything crazy movement-wise with the ninth overall pick in Friday's draft. The team holds a top-10 pick for the second consecutive year thanks to the Phil Kessel trade. After selecting Tyler Seguin a season ago with the second overall pick, Chiarelli said he doesn't envision the team picking that high again. 

"I don’t think there will be any magic for us tomorrow," Chiarelli said. "We’re picking nine, I’d say there’s, maybe after three or four, there’s a real good group of another eight, and there’s a good batch of defenseman, there’s a good batch of wingers and there’s a good batch of centermen. So we’re pretty content where we are and we’ll see where it goes. Oftentimes, players that you have ranked below your group go in and really good players drop and go last."...

NFL players, owners finish meetings in Hull

Here are the statements made by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith made to reporters Thursday afternoon at the end of two days of talks between the players and owners at Nantasket Beach Resort in Hull:

Goodell: “You obviously know we met over the last couple of days. We are under court order as far as what we can discuss so our comments will be brief. But obviously we’re all working hard. The players and owners were here over the last two days. De and I were here for the entire meetings also. And it’s complicated and it’s complex, but we’re working hard and we understand the fans’ frustration. But I think both of us feel strongly that we’re going to continue to work hard at it.”

Smith: “Someone asked me whether I was optimistic. I think we’re both optimistic when we have the right people in the room. We know we’re talking about the right issues...

Rivers: Celtics need to add size, shooting
By: DJ Bean

Celtics coach Doc Rivers joined The Big Show on Thursday to discuss his decision to re-sign with the team and what was missing as the team failed to get past the Heat in the second round of the playoffs. 

Rivers said that size, a replacement for Tony Allen and shooting will be required for the C's to be better next season.

"Not having Shaq [O'Neal] healthy was huge for us. It was a big loss," Rivers said. "The second thing is losing Tony Allen. I loved him. We needed a stopper. We didn't have a guy who you could say at the small positions -- at 1, 2 and 3 -- 'go shut him down.' We lost that that in Tony Allen. The third thing we have to add is, we have to keep adding shooting. I kept saying before the [finals], I picked Dallas. It didn't look good, actually. You could make the case Miami should have won in the first four games. I kept saying, 'If they start making shots like they're capable, of, this series is over, because...
