Peter Chiarelli Met With The Media Today

from Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe,

There was exhaustion evident in Peter Chiarelli’s face and tone as he addressed reporters in an empty hotel conference room on Friday.

It was the day after the Bruins had essentially knocked themselves out of the playoffs, after dispiriting losses to Washington and Florida in consecutive days left the Bruins needing significant help to continue playing beyond this weekend.

And while the Bruins’ general manager emphasized – over and over again – that he did not want to do a postmortem on the season that should have been for his team, he essentially did just that.

“We put ourselves in this position,” Chiarelli said. “I consider it a failure. And it’s a failure on everybody’s part. But being a failure doesn’t mean there has to be a complete overhaul of everything.

“Guys fail. Teams fail. And they get back on their horse. Again, I consider it a failure, but you don’t always succeed in this business. You don’t always hit the ball out of the park all the time and you’ve got to get back and do your job and we’ve shown we can do that. But right now it’s pretty disappointing.”
