Tough market for Bruins

While Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli will look to help his team win back-to-back Stanley Cups, his job might be slightly more difficult at this year's deadline with the trade market not shaping up as the club had hoped, reports.

Last season, Chiarelli added key pieces when he brought in the likes of forwards Chris Kelly and Rich Peverley and defenseman Tomas Kaberle, but this season a couple of players that could have fit well with the Bruins, such as Antoine Vermette and Tuomo Ruutu, are no longer available.

The Bruins are looking to add some help up front with Peverley and Nathan Horton sidelined for an extended period of time with injuries, but there simply aren't lots of players who answer what Chiarelli is looking for.

The GM has been investigating the possibility to trade for Phoenix Coyotes forward Ray Whitney, however, the veteran is rumored to be staying in Arizona.

Although these obstacles will not prevent Chiarelli from working the phones, his desire to keep his club intact and not wanting to deal any of his highly-regarded prospects might.
