The Bruins top priority is to land a top-4 puckmoving defenseman. BB_fan outlined some of Chiarelli's options here. Unloading someone like Schaefer is secondary.

Given the B's are about $1.5M from the cap, to make any deal, they'll need to move salary if they are to bring in anyone anyone of consequence.

I don't see Chiarelli adding more scoring help, not when there's a need for skill, speed and finesse on the backline. As Modo said the B's have Bergeron coming back. Plus, a potentially renewed Ryder combined with improved secondary scoring via continued development from Krejci, Kessel and Lucic should give the B's a more balanced attack.
