New Oilers CEO Bob Nicholson said the Bruins and Oilers are still in discussions about whether there will be draft pick compensation for Chiarelli.

“I’ve talked to the Bruins and Cam Neely and we’re in discussions on that topic there,” Nicholson said. “Something will be announced at a later date.”

According to a report on, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said that teams can pursue draft pick compensation even for fired coaches, general managers, or presidents of hockey operations who remain under contract, as Chiarelli was. Teams can also decline to pursue the compensation, given that this is a way to get a fired executive or coach off their books.

It appears that the Bruins have chosen the former course of action regarding Chiarelli.


Boston is pretty set at Center but I guess we could find room for that McDavid kid.

Why don't the Bruins return Tuukka Rask back to the Maple Leafs since they've hire John Ferguson Jr.
