CSNNE.COM: Joe Haggarty reports Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli was in Pittsburgh on Wednesday watching the Penguins take on the Philadelphia Flyers, and spent the entire second intermission chatting with Flyers GM Paul Holmgren. The Flyers are believed in the market for a defenseman, while the Bruins would like to add depth on the wing. Haggarty wondered if Chiarelli had Flyers winger Ruslan Fedotenko or Penguins forward Tyler Kennedy in mind, or if Holmgren might be considering a bigger deal.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: The Bruins have the cap space (around $8 million) to add another player or two, but the Flyers (even with Chris Pronger on LTIR) are uncomfortably close to the cap ceiling, meaning Holmgren would have to either make a salary-for-salary deal, or shed more salary than he’s taking back. Should be worth keeping an eye on these two clubs in the coming weeks.
