Much to the dismay of their angry fanbase, the Boston Bruins are officially all in again on Don Sweeney.
Will Cale Makar end up being better than Boston Bruins legend Bobby Orr?
That, more Boston Bruins news, NHL trade rumors and reaction from the now-concluded Stanley Cup Final in the BHN Bruins Daily:
The 2019 GM of the Year, Don Sweeney, has officially signed a contract extension with the Boston Bruins.
Don’t Expect former Boston Bruins center Marc Savard to join the Bruins in any coaching capacity. The current Windsor Spitfires head coach is holding out for the same job in the NHL and the Bruins have not contacted him about their open head coaching job.
The Boston Bruins have announced their preseason schedule and once again there is no game against their arch-rivals, the Montreal Canadiens.
