Might Bruins deal Tyler Seguin or Brad Marchand?

Peter Chiarelli will inch up to a microphone around noon Wednesday at TD Garden and likely reveal just how tattered and bruised his Bruins were when their season came crashing down at the 11th hour Monday night. Boston’s general manager also will be expected to provide a few hints as to how he’ll go about reworking his roster with the 2013-14 season to start around Oct. 1.

Chiarelli has been on the job on Causeway Street now for seven years. He is thoughtful, patient, and not prone to quick changes in direction. He spent a lot of money last summer — $70.5 million to be precise — to sign forwards Milan Lucic, Brad Marchand, and Tyler Seguin to long-term contract extensions, leaving him with relatively light lifting in the shortened offseason of 2013. His biggest chore will be satisfying franchise goalie Tuukka Rask with a new contract.
