Chiarelli: B's still talking to Kaberle
By: DJ Bean

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said in a conference call Friday that he has remained in contact with Tomas Kaberle's camp about potentially bringing the free agent defenseman back to Boston.

"I've had a few discussions today with him, and that's where I'll leave it, but I have had a couple discussions," Chiarelli said. "Again, I'm not ruling out re-signing Tomas."

The B's saw Michael Ryder sign with the Stars on the opening day of free agency, and after the former Bruins winger took a two-year, $7 million deal in Dallas, the B's inked former Canadiens winger Benoit Pouliot to a one-year, $1.1 million deal. The team also announced the signings of third goaltender Anton Khudobin and center Trent Whitfield, both of whom recieved two-year deals and will almost certainly start the season in Providence.

Pouliot was the fourth overall pick in the 2005 draft by Minnesota, but has scored only 35 goals in 183 career games...

NY Times sells part of Red Sox stake

According to various reports, the New York Times Company sold a little more than half its stake in Fenway Sports Group, the holding company of the Red Sox. The sale to three seperate entities for $117 million in cash was disclosed in a regulatory filing on Friday and represents 390 of its 700 shares. The names of the buyers were not disclosed.

The Times, which also owns the Boston Globe, bought a 17.8 percent stake in what was then called New England Sports Ventures in 2002 for $75 million. The company had been trying to sell its shares since 2008 and indicated it would try to sell the remaining shares.

Report: Pouliot to B's on one-year deal
By: DJ Bean

According to RDS, the Bruins have signed free agent left wing Benoit Pouliot to a one-year, $1.1 million deal. The news came shortly afetr the Stars announced they had signed former B's winger Michael Ryder.

Pouliot is one of the more notable recent high first-round picks to not find stardom in the NHL. Chosen fourth overall by the Wild in 2005, he never had a 10-goal-season with the team before being traded to Montreal in 2009. He spent the last two seasons with the Canadiens, but fell out of favor towards the end of his tenure. He was a healthy scratch in the last four games of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals vs. the Bruins. 

In 183 NHL games, Pouliot has scored 35 goals and added 37 assists for 72 career points.

Millar on M&M: Cameron, Sox not a fit
By: DJ Bean

MLB Network baseball analyst Kevin Millar joined Tom Caron and Lou Merloni Friday to discuss the current state of the Red Sox and the end of outfielder Mike Cameron's tenure in Boston. The 38-year-old was designated for assignment on Thursday.

"Tremendous guy. Tremendous professional, and Mike is awesome," Millar said of Cameron. "The bottom line is you just get to an age and things slow down. He went through the hernia surgery, and he just didn't have the bat speed right now coming off the bench. He's been an everyday player his whole career. Maybe this new role was not easy, this minor role. 

"I don't think Boston was a great fit for him when he's not the everyday guy."

Cameron was hitting .149 with three homers and nine RBI in 94 at-bats this season, his second with Boston. 

"It's tough, especially when you get to that age when you're not the same player and you don't have the same bat speed...
