CSNNE.com’s Joe Haggerty reports General Managers Paul Holmgren and Peter Chiarelli chatted for the entire second-period intermission of Tuesday’s games between the Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins. Could a deal could be brewing between the Philadelphia Flyers and Boston Bruins?

“It’s the second time that Chiarelli has spent time personally watching the Flyers players as he also was in the press box for Philadelphia’s January 22nd game against the New Jersey Devils. It’s no secret that Philly has stumbled out of the gate and needs major defensemen help with the injuries they’ve sustained along their blue line, and that Boston has good NHL depth with seven capable guys on the Boston roster along with at least four able-bodied blueliners (Torey KrugMatt Bartkowski, David Warsofsky and Zach Trotman) ready to help an NHL club from the AHL level.”

And, as Haggerty points out, the Boston squad is said to be interested in adding a scoring winger and forward depth.
