Bruins Need A Nucleus

from the Nashua Telegraph,
Park said defenseman Zdeno Chara, signed as a free agent this summer, will help make up for some of the size lost by Thornton, without providing the points. Meanwhile, Park is impressed with new Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli. “I’ve met him, I’ve talked with him,” he said. “He’s a Harvard guy, he’s from Canada, you’ve got to like those two combinations right away. He’s got a big job ahead of him. Time will tell.” The Bruins, who start training camp in a couple of weeks, need one thing above all, Park said. “The problem they have is they have to establish a nucleus,” Park said. “They’ve signed a lot of good players, but they have yet to form a nucleus. So it’s going to be very key for them to start the season well.”
