Tomas Kaberle is off to Carolina, so the Bruins picked up Joe Corvo to fill in on the blue line.

Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer spoke with D.A. about the Bruins’ new defenseman. What type of player is Corvo at this point in his career?

“Well he’s a well conditioned athlete, that’s one thing about Joe. He’s 34-years-old, but age is not really showing up on him right now. He’s built like a linebacker. I know it might be frustrating to some of the fans there he won’t play like a linebacker. He’s not a real physical guy; he’s more of a finese guy. He’s a great puck mover,” Alexander said of the Bruins’ new acquisition.

The power play was something the Bruins struggled with all season long. How is Corvo on the man-advantage?

“I think he’s pretty effective and one thing Joe Corvo can do is he can bring the puck up and get the power play started that way. He handles the puck very well, good passer, like I said he has a good shot. Not a big scorer, but he’ll put the puck in the net and create some rebounds,” Alexander said.

They also discussed Carolina signing Tomas Kaberle and what they expect from him down there. Will the smaller market, and smaller spotlight, help Kaberle?

They also discussed an incident that happened in Corvo’s minor league days where he got in a fight with a woman in a bar in Boston and was suspended for three games. Could Alexander shed anymore light on this incident for D.A.?

Listen and find out what he had to say.
