Chiarelli on D&H: Kessel 'made it impossible for me to sign him'

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli did an interview on the Dale & Holley show Wednesday afternoon and discussed the prospects for the upcoming season as well as the Phil Kessel trade.

 

"We will miss the style of goals Phil scored, because the speed will back off the [defense]" Chiarelli said, adding that he expects to pick up the scoring slack with efforts from Patrice Bergeron, Milan Lucic, David Krejci and newcomer Derek Morris.

 

"I believe we will make up for the goals with those guys that I mentioned, we just won't score them the same way."

 

Chiarelli reiterated that the trade was prompted by Kessel's actions.

 

"The fact of the matter is that he made it clear that he did not want to stay in Boston, that he wanted out," Chiarelli said. "That makes it hard for me to sign him. In fact, that made it impossible for me to sign him, because it...

Rosenthal on D&H: Will the Indians pursue Farrell as their next manager?

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, in his weekly visit on the Dale & Holley Show, said that "it's going to be interesting to see" whether the Indians make a push to pursue Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell as their next manager. Cleveland fired manager Eric Wedge on Wednesday. Farrell has several ties to Cleveland, having pitched for the Indians and then later becoming the team's director of player development from 2001-06. He also lives in Cleveland in the offseason.
 
But, as Rosenthal first reported and WEEI.com confirmed, Farrell has a contract clause that prevents him from managing until after the 2010 season. The Red Sox could elect to waive the clause, perhaps in exchange for player or financial compensation. With the clause creating a barrier to the pursuit of Farrell, Rosenthal...

Krejci 'looking good' for Thursday's opener

Bruins center David Krejci has been ahead of schedule throughout the preseason, and it appears he'll be ready at the earliest portion of the recovery timetable by playing Opening Night against the Washington Capitals on Oct. 1. The 23-year-old playmaker has been practicing with the team for nearly the entire training camp schedule, and took part in another full practice on Thursday including time on the 5-on-4 and 5-on-3 power play units.
Krejci was also at his old spot centering a line between Blake Wheeler and Michael Ryder during the practice, and B's coach Claude Julien did everything but officially announce his readiness following Wednesday's practice.
"The official [decision] will be made tomorrow, but right now he's looking good," said Julien. "He's feeling better and he's feeling more confident. The official decision, I guess, will come tomorrow, but right now it's looking good.
"He's ahead of schedule and...

Wedge fired by Indians
By: admin

The Cleveland Indians fired manager Eric Wedge five days before the end of a disappointing season in which the 2007 AL Central champs are one game from last place. Wedge, a former Red Sox catcher, guided the Indians to one playoff appearance in seven seasons. That was two years ago, when Cleveland was one win from the World Series before the Red Sox rallied from a 3-1 deficit to win the ALCS on their way to a World Series title. The Indians fell to 81-81 last year and now are 64-92 in what has become a rebuilding year. For the full story, click here.
