Reports are surfacing that David Pastrnak signing n extension with the Boston Bruins is far from a sure thing and that he could hit the NHL trade market soon.
The Boston Bruins are using the lazy narrative of ‘We needed a new voice’ to justify the firing of head coach Bruce Cassidy
That, NHL Trade rumors and more in your BHN Bruins Daily:
As if the offseason hasn’t already been crazy enough for the Boston Bruins, now there’s word that David Pastrnak won’t sign an extension with the team if Don Sweeney is still the general manager. This is leading to wild NHL trade rumors.
There was plenty of fallout Tuesday after Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney addressed the media a day after firing Bruce Cassidy.
Don Sweeney AND Patrice Bergeron denied rumors that the Boston Bruins captain made firing Cassidy a condition for him to come back next season.
Why would Sweeney allow Cassidy to fire Boston Bruins assistant coach Kevin Dean and then fire Cassidy a week later?
Sweeney and the Boston Bruins are using the lazy ‘we needed a new voice’ mantra to justify the firing of Bruce Cassidy, when it’s pretty clear they’re scapegoating Cassidy for the failures of Sweeney and Cam Neely.
