It appears that Don Sweeney will be back as general manager of the Boston Bruins. What about Jake DeBrusk. …and David Krejci?
That, trade and free agent rumors and the latest Stanley Cup Playoffs news in the BHN Bruins Daily:
Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney confirmed that his current contract is expiring but he believes he will be renewed as the team’s GM for next season.
If that is true, good for Sweeney but he better do what his predecessor did, and he has failed to do as Boston Bruins GM; win the 2023 Stanley Cup!
Could Jake DeBrusk change his mind and rescind his trade request from the Boston Bruins?
Sweeney sent another bat signal out to David Krejci on Wednesday.
