Peter Chiarelli Puts Marty Turco’s Chances of Clearing Waivers at ’50/50′ (Video)


With Tuukka Rask sidelined for four to six weeks, the Bruins signed veteran goaltender Marty Turco to a one-year contract on Monday.

However, Turco's arrival in Boston isn't a sure thing just yet, as the three-time All-Star still has to clear waivers before joining the club. It might not pose a problem given the limited interest in the 36-year-old, but general manager Peter Chiarelli knows that it's at least a possibility that Turco could be claimed by another team before the noon deadline on Wednesday.

Chiarelli put the chances of Turco clearing waivers at 50/50. If and when Turco does join the club, though, Chiarelli expects him to spell Tim Thomas the rest of the way, giving the Bruins starter a chance to rest up before what Boston hopes is another deep playoff run.

Check out the video above to hear more from Chiarelli on Turco, and to hear Gord Kluzak's analysis of the signing.
