Uncertainty...
Given the current labor situation between the NHL and the NHLPA, several Bruins players wondered aloud as to their schedules over the coming weeks as they spoke to the media after Friday\'s captain\'s practice in Wilmington.

WILMINGTON, MA — Given the current labor situation between the NHL and the NHLPA, several Bruins players wondered aloud as to their schedules over the coming weeks as they spoke to the media after Friday's captain's practice in Wilmington.

Chara

"We all want to play," said Boston captain Zdeno Chara, who presided over informal skates in Wilmington this week. "We all love hockey; [its] our job.

"At the same time we have to play under certain rules and we’ve got to make sense," added the blueliner. "But as far as us, we will be continuing training and skating, and keeping ourselves in shape."

In a nearby locker stall, Gregory Campbell admitted it was a strange situation.

"It’s something that nobody really wants to have to deal with," said the forward. "We, as players, want to play.

"I guess it is what it is, we have to deal with it, we have to stay together, first and foremost as a team, and as players.

"We’ll deal with the situations and stay optimistic," he said.

That optimism will be tested, however, as the players watch the wire this weekend.

"So there’s a reason to be optimistic, but on the other hand, not much has moved lately so it’s tough," said defenseman Dennis Seidenberg, who said he would stay near Boston in the short run.

"I mean, not much different," said Seidenberg of the player’s current activity. "We skate every day, we work out most of the time, and just get ready in case it happens, because you never know—one day, one side moves closer to the other, and suddenly things get moving.

"So for now, everybody gets ready as if we were starting on the 21st, and then we go from there."
