One team many thought would make big waves this summer was the Boston Bruins. With guys like Rick Nash and Bobby Ryan floating around, the B’s instead stayed quiet.

Joe Haggerty of hears it from Boston GM Peter Chiarelli that you shouldn’t expect anything big from the Bruins the rest of the way.

“I think there’s a good chance that this will be our roster going into camp,” said Chiarelli. “I think there’s a good chance. There’s a lot of the summer left and there’s a lot of stuff that has to happen on a macro basis too. So, I really, if anything right now, there’s -- in my mind -- there’s more uncertainty as far as the global landscape and us in the global landscape. “I guess what I’m saying is, I think anything can happen depending on how things unfold, but there’s a good chance that this will be our roster going into the training camp.”

If you’re a Bruins fan and you’re fretting about things, the news of Nathan Horton being cleared for contact following his late-season concussion is their big “acquisition” of the summer. Getting him back helps balance out their lines and gives them their big goal scorer.
