Bruins are cautious shoppers

Although the Bruins are leading the league in goals for and goals against per game, Boston GM Peter Chiarelli is still looking to add depth to his current roster ahead of the trade deadline.

According to ESPN's Pierre LeBrun, Chiarelli is shopping around, but is being more careful this time around.

"Obviously we have a lot of cap room, so there's a lot of flexibility," Chiarelli told "I would like to add depth-wise on the forward front and depth-wise on the defenseman front. But I don't want to subtract anything."

Last season, Chiarelli made several significant changes, adding forwards Rich Peverley and Chris Kelly and defenseman Tomas Kaberle before the deadline en route to a Stanley Cup championship.

"The difference between last year and this year is that I'm a little more certain about the chemistry at this point," said the Bruins GM. "So I have to be a little more careful about adding. I don't want to subtract in order to add. If I can add, I want to be careful about chemistry."

Chiarelli refused to name potential targets, but many believe he could be looking at Carolina Hurricanes forward Tuomo Ruutu and/or blueliner Tim Gleason. Both are set to become unrestricted free agents this summer.
