As Chara grabbed a basketball and spinning a few layups, general manager Peter Chiarelli surveyed the scene with fear. “I'm sitting there going, F---, Zee, don't twist your ankle,” he says. Then someone approached Chiarelli. It was Chris Mullin, a few years away from his Hall of Fame induction, working as ...
Huge contracts signed by general manager Peter Chiarelli for McDavid, Leon Draisatl and Milan Lucic won't make it easier to put a good team in front of him either.

Showing former general manager Peter Chiarelli the door didn't hurt though. With all due respect, he built the Bruins' 2011 championship team that fell just short of repeating in 2013.

Last offseason, I ranked every general manager. People thought Peter Chiarelli, at 17, was ranked too low. Perhaps now people will think he was ranked too high. Yes, Chiarelli won a Stanley Cup. But let's face it, that was a lockout ago. It's hard to argue Chiarelli has been anything but bad for the Oilers.
The pitchforks and torches are out. It's easy to question the abilities of Edmonton Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli.

The idea that this club is showcasing an injured defenceman who's on a sweetheart contract for the next five years should get the hairs on the back of your neck to stand up. It's also not the craziest thing I've heard since Peter Chiarelli has become this club's general manager. Chiarelli's taken so many L's ...
General manager Peter Chiarelli has used the word repeatedly in his various media appearances since January. A little higher up the food chain, CEO Bob Nicholson has echoed those comments in interviews he's given. The year might be done as far as the playoffs are concerned, but for players and ...
There's a lot of talk about the roster, but also the futures of general manager Peter Chiarelli and head coach Todd McLellan.

For just under 10 minutes, Edmonton Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli held court with the media about his team's performance, its plans for the looming NHL trade deadline and what to expect over the final quarter of the 2017-18 season. He took pains not to reveal too much. Mostly he succeeded.
The Boston Bruins have had some bad luck over the past few years, trading away key pieces. But what if Peter Chiarelli, GM from 2006-2015, was never in that position?

Oilers Chief Executive Officer and Vice Chair Bob Nicholson had his press conference and told the media that he was giving Peter Chiarelli one more ...

Nonetheless, these trades give the Oilers some cap-space and assets to put a better team on the ice next year.

Edmonton Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli is no stranger to making big trades, but he has no plans to add another one to his resume next month.

“And aside from the obvious, how can (Oilers general manager Peter) Chiarelli not consider just about anything? He has to. So he has to be willing to listen. But the problem for any struggling manager is that you don't have rivals who are lining up to help you. They're all trying to pick your pockets. So I'm ...
For Edmonton Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli, the dual jobs of building a Stanley Cup contender and replenishing a sunken farm system have taken a bad turn. The NHL team's chances of making the playoffs are in real trouble and the prospects are mostly in the “too soon to know” category.
The Oilers lost again on Tuesday, this time getting blown out in a 5-0 rout at the hands of the basement-dwelling Buffalo Sabres. It's the third time in 10 games that Edmonton has been embarrassed by that exact score; if they do it once more between now and the rest of the season they'll match their own ...
Except there's another problem for the Oilers and general manager Peter Chiarelli, who recently said he was “feeling the heat” of his team's struggles: This year represents the end of their best window.
