This is great news for two reasons...
First, it sends a message to the UFA's that his first priority is to bring back the team that won the Cup.
Second, it allows Chairelli to gauge his Salary cap situation for the next three years. If someone like Kelly declines, then he becomes a piece in a move or cap space for this year and next. Same goes for Campbell. Thornton deserves to retire a Bruin and then return to the Shwa! Paille can be replaced by Pouliot's or his spot becomes open for the prospects.
This is Chiarelli getting a strong gauge on his salary cap for next year onward two weeks before the deadline...
Bottom line folks: The Boston Bruins are interested in a player that has a contract beyond this season.
