Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Kevin Paul Dupont at the Hockey Journal,
Now it’s time to judge Peter Chiarelli’s Bruins. Just over four years since taking over the failed hockey product on Causeway Street, Chiarelli—who turns 46 next month—just returned home from California with the latest boatload of future promise inherent in the NHL’s annual draft.
Depending on how you count, it was Chiarelli’s fourth of fifth draft since being named Boston’s GM. Technically, he had yet to assume the corner office for the June 2006 draft, which is the same draft that had the Bruins selecting Phil Kessel (No. 5 overall), Milan Lucic (No. 50) and making the Andrew Raycroft-for-Tuukka Rask swap with the Leafs.
If you don’t believe Chiarelli’s fingerprints were all over those June ‘06 moves, then don’t waste any of your time watching the wildly-popular CSI shows ... it’s just not your cup of prima facie evidence.
