Bruins Daily: Sweeney Update; NHL Trade Rumors; Stanley Cup Final

NHL Draft

Despite the fact he’s currently working the phones on the NHL trade market and leading the search for a new head coach, Don Sweeney does not have a new contract with the Boston Bruins yet.

That, Stanley Cup Playoffs news and more in your BHN Bruins Daily:

Boston Bruins

What’s the latest on a contract extension for Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney?

National Hockey Now

PGH: A spell of bad draft picks is not only costing wins for the Pittsburgh Penguins but they’re also costing the Penguins money.

PHI: Philadelphia Flyers fans have mixed views on the John Tortorella hiring.

WSH: What restricted and unrestricted free agents will Washington Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan sign? Will he hit the NHL trade market?

FLA: Reports are surfacing that the Florida Panthers are reportedly adding Finland national coach Jukka Jalonen to their potential coaching search.

DET: As reported here leading into the NHL trade deadline and again recently, the Detroit Red Wings are interested in Montreal Canadiens defenseman Jeff Petry. Does he make sense for the Wings though?

COL: Looks like Colorado Hockey Now scribes Adrian Dater and Terry Frei, two writers I respect immensely, had very different takes on the Stanley Cup Final after Game 2 and now after Game 3. I gotta agree with Frei on this one though, there was no way the Avalanche was going to sweep the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions, Tampa Bay Lightning. The Lightning made sure of that Monday in a 6-2 blowout win.

SJS: Former San Jose Sharks head coach Pete DeBoer is reportedly set to become the new head coach of the Dallas Stars.

Canada Hockey Now

MTL: There have been plenty of NHL Trade rumors surrounding the Montreal Canadiens potentially acquiring the second overall pick from the New Jersey Devils. However, it could cost them a package that would include goalie Cayden Primeau.

VAN: Could former Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban sign with the Vancouver Canucks this offseason?

NHL

Montreal Canadiens fans favorite Lightning player, Nikita Kucherov, left Monday’s Game 3 victory over the Colorado Avalanche in the third period with an apparent injury and did not return.

The code of silence continues in the Hockey Canada sexual assault scandal. Why do so many in our business – players, coaches, management, ownership, media and fans – turn a blind eye to such cases before, while and after they happen?

HAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

If Subban is available, Sweeney will try to get him, if he will sign a two way, 1 year, team friendly (cheap) contract.

Unless they get Subban for the league minimum forget it. His skill level has eroded to the point of whether I’d even take a chance on PK . This obviously isn’t the same player he was 10 years ago, or even five years ago. I think you’d be looking at another Jagr in the reg season, but once the playoffs roll around there’s nothing left. Pass …they need another sold d. Sweeney has to come through I don’t think he can the guy is practically useless.

MicBruins

Time for Sweeny and McNeely to depart that is the first thing the Bruins need to do!!
Get up off your couch Jacob’s family and look at the total picture before any talk of trades etc.., look where the Bruins are right this day before we sit in the basement twittling our thumbs.
Man up and do what you should do in order for the Bruins survive!!!??

Alex

Sweeney pass the buck with Bruce To save his job and Cam will pass the buck on Sweeney to save his job and The Jacob’s family only thinking of money and don’t care The Jacob’s should clean house
