The expectation is that things will be quiet on the trade front for the Bruins for at least a couple more months. The big news will be press releases such as Friday afternoon's when the Black and Gold trumpeted the re-signing of Jordan Caron, Justin Florek and Zach Trotman among other to short-term contracts. Those are all necessary transactions and useful players, but a two-way deal for Craig Cunningham or Tommy Cross doesn’t exactly capture the imagination of an uneasy Bruins Nation. The ultimate re-signing of Torey Krug and Reilly Smith will be bigger news for the Black and Gold, but any big moves to significantly improve the team won’t be happening until September. “I’m always working. There’s stuff going on, it’s just not fast," general manager Peter Chiarelli said. "There are parameters and deals talked about, and it’s just kind of pushing it along slowly. There’s not urgency. It may happen that [a trade] happens on the eve of training camp or two days before, because the player has to get to that camp from where he is. But it’s slow, it’s slow.” Sure, it could still be a big move involving Winnipeg Jets winger Evander Kane if GM Kevin Cheveldayoff eventually gets off the pot and decides to make a genuine big deal to stir up a stagnant group. That could be helped if Kane becomes a problem in training camp right off the bat and does something a little more forceful than favoritng a tweet about getting traded to the Flyers. That would be costly for the Bruins, though, in terms of salary-cap space and assets, such as Brad Marchand, that could be going in the other direction for a big-bodied, fast-skating player who has proven he can score 30 goals in the NHL.
