At the first intermission of the Bruins’€™ rookie game against the Lightning, general manager Peter Chiarelli discussed the team’€™s NHL roster and where things stand going forward.

The biggest takeaways were that David Pastrnak could begin training camp on the right wing of David Krejci‘€™s line, that he will not sign all of his free-agents-to-be and that he will trade a defenseman at some point. Chiarelli offered no update on the status of Torey Krug and Reilly Smith, both of whom remain unsigned with days left until camp.

With Johnny Boychuk and Carl Soderberg the biggest names entering the final years of their contracts and the Bruins having $49,897,857 against the cap committed to 10 players (not counting Marc Savard) for 2015-16, money figures to be tight going forward. The last time the Bruins had multiple players to sign and a potential cap crunch ahead, Chiarelli opted to sign all three players (Tyler Seguin, Milan Lucic and Brad Marchands, all of whom were a year away from restricted free agency) with the idea that if he had to trade one down the road, he would.

Chiarelli said he won’€™t go the sign-everyone route this time. The team recently signed David Krejci to a six-year, $43.5 million extension.

“I can’€™t sign everybody, and I’€™d love to sign everybody, but we can’€™t for the numbers that they want,” Chiarelli said. “Before, when I said we’€™d like to lock up guys. We still would, and we can with our cap. We make a decision on Krej, and that’€™s a big number. Some things you have to let play out, and we have to be a little versatile ourselves when it comes to team-building and we’€™re forced to do that this year.
