Doesn't sound like Corvo will be back
By James Murphy
BOSTON -- Defenseman Joe Corvo was acquired by the Bruins last summer in the hopes that he could use his puck-moving skills and shot from the point to bolster the power play and add more offense from the back end. But things didn’t go as planned, as the defenseman struggled mightily with just one power play goal, four goals overall and 25 points in 75 regular season games and no points in five playoff games.
Corvo, 34, is a unrestricted free agent on July 1 and as the Bruins headed home for the summer Friday, Corvo didn’t sound like he planned on returning to Boston next season.
“I have no idea. I’m a free agent and I’ll see what’s out there,” Corvo answered when asked if he thought he’d be back with the Bruins in September. “I don’t know. That’s up to them but still I don’t know. I don’t want to think about that or anything really right now.”
Corvo was asked what he thought went wrong for him this season and did not have an answer.
“I don’t know. I didn’t play well and it was hard,” Corvo said. “But I enjoyed playing with these guys and it was a great year in that respect.”
