There’s no rest for the Stanley Cup champs, or at least for the architect of the NHL title holders. Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli took a break from meetings Monday to update ESPN.com on some of the decisions he has to make.

Chiarelli confirmed what Tomas Kaberle’s veteran agent, Rick Curran, told us earlier in the day: the two sides plan to meet in Minnesota to discuss whether there’s a fit moving forward for the pending unrestricted free agent.

“We want to have further discussions,” Chiarelli told ESPN.com. “We’re still in the planning stages. We haven’t ruled anything out. I told Tomas we’re still throwing it around, planning-wise. He brought something that we needed, so we’ll see where it goes moving forward.”

On Sunday, Kaberle told ESPNBoston.com he would like to return to Boston.

“Obviously we’re going to talk the next few days," Kaberle said. "Hopefully we can sit down or we can talk to my agent and it will be nice to be back here.”

Likewise, pending UFA Michael Ryder is on Chiarelli’s radar.

“Like Kaberle, I said to Mike that we continue to plan right now,” said the Bruins GM. “I told him, ‘You’re a player that came to play every game in the playoffs.’ I told him I’d speak with his agent this week or next.”
