No movement on Wideman

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli, on the other side of the continent on a fishing trip this week, is handling negotiations with Dennis Wideman. So the Bruins aren’t expecting any agreement to take place — if they can settle before arbitration — until Chiarelli returns Sunday.

“His cellphone doesn’t work,” assistant GM Jim Benning said with a laugh. “So he’ll probably look into that further when he gets back.”
