Bruins gearing up for free agency

From the Boston Globe:

Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said Wednesday he's is thinking of moving some high-priced contracts in order to pursue high-profile player.

Among the free agents he's considering is Marian Hossa, a highly skilled goal-scorer who helped the Pittsburgh Penguins reach the Stanley Cup finals this spring.

Read more about the Bruins' off-season plans here.

Rumors have been around for a while that Chiarelli will target Marian Hossa come July 1. There have no reports that contradict these rumors, so it seems like the Bruins will have a big offer ready for the Slovakian winger. I'm sure Chiarelli's experience with Hossa in Ottawa won't hurt (see: Zdeno Chara).

Ballhype: hype it up!
