Immigration issues keep Kelly out vs. Isles
By: DJ Bean

 Bruins forward Chris Kelly, acquired Tuesday night in a trade with the Senators, will not be available to play Thursday night against the Islanders due to immigration issues. Kelly, a Canadian citizen previously employed in Canada, will remain in Ottawa, where he will join the team Friday. 

 

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli issued the following statement Thursday afternoon:

 

"At this time we have not received the proper immigration approval necessary for Chris to play in tonight's game against the New York Islanders. This is the normal operating procedure for a non-immigrant to legally work in the United States. Chris will meet the team in Ottawa tomorrow and will be available to play in tomorrow's game against the Senators."

Gonzalez: Pujols won't affect contract talks

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez met with the media at the team's minor league training facility to discuss the state of his surgically repaired shoulder and his excitement about his new team. He also talked about his own contract status -- Gonzalez is playing on a $6.3 million option this season, and would be eligible for free agency after the 2011 season if he did not sign a long-term deal with the Sox.

 

"We don’t have any set deadlines [for negotiating]," Gonzalez said. "Hopefully we can get it done sooner rather than later, but from my end, I want to show them I’m healthy and that I’m playing 100 percent out there."

 

A source told WEEI.com in December that the two sides had seen eye-to-eye on the parameters of a contract extension that would keep Gonzalez in Boston for seven years. The first baseman said that his talks with the Sox would not be impacted by...

Ortiz: Focused on World Series, not contract

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Entering the final year of his current contract, David Ortiz reported to Red Sox camp on Thursday and said he's focused on bringing another World Series to Boston, not a new contract. 

 

"I'm just going to focus on playing baseball right now," Ortiz said during a 20-minute session with reporters. "Whatever happens, happens later on, but right now my goal is to have a great start and make sure we win another World Series this year. I'm very excited. I can't wait for the season to start.

 

"I haven't thought about it yet. I haven't thought about it. It's another year, a lot of expectations, happy to be here and excited about what's coming up. There's a lot of new players coming to the club. It's my first day here and have a lot of questions asked already from those guys. I'm happy to let those guys know how things go around here and make sure our fans get another good year...

Theo: Sox 'haven't done anything yet'

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Red Sox GM Theo Epstein held court with the media in Fort Myers following the third day of team workouts. Thursday marks the official reporting date for position players, and all players except for J.D. Drew and Marco Scutaro took part.

 

Epstein was pleased to hear that the players are articulating high expectations, but he noted candidly that the Sox "haven’t done anything yet. … We have to prove we’re not a third-place team."

 

Epstein said that he did not envision David Ortiz’ contract status (he is playing under a $12.5 million option this year) being a distraction, noting that the uncertainty that awaits him following this year is no different than what he played under in 2010.

 

A source told FoxSports.com that the Red Sox "are set to sign" Adrian Gonzalez to a seven-year, $164 million contract extension, but will...

Report: Kaberle trade 'close' for Bruins

According to a report from TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, the Bruins are close to a trade that would send four-time All-Star defenseman Tomas Kaberle to Boston.

 

 

Dreger reports that the trade is not likely to happen on Thursday, but sources tell him that the deal is close and does not hinge on Kaberle signing an extension with the Bruins. Cap flexibility is also a factor, and a secondary trade might be needed by the Bruins in order to create cap space.
