Boston Bruins

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:

Boston Bruins

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.

NYI: New York Islanders prospect William Dufour is a finalist for the CHL David Branch Award, which is given to the most outstanding player across the Canadian Hockey League.

PGH: How badly has dealing high draft picks leading into the NHL Trade Deadline hurt the Pittsburgh Penguins?

PHI: The Philadelphia Flyers can learn some valuable lessons from the Colorado Avalanche, the new Stanley Cup Champions.

WSH: A hearty welcome to the National Hockey Now family for new Washington Hockey Now writer Mackane Vogel.

FLA: Congrats to former Florida Panthers goalie and current Panthers special advisor to the general manager Roberto Luongo who was named as a Hockey Hall of Fame inductee on Monday.

DET: Could Detroit Red Wings general manager Steve Yzerman turn to two former hires he made as GM of the Tampa Bay Lightning as candidates for the Red Wings’ open head coaching job?

COL: I’m on record already for this, and I’ll say it again here, Colorado Avalanche defenseman Cale Makar will end up surpassing Bobby Orr as the greatest defenseman ever. On that note, it was nice to see Orr come out of hibernation and congratulate Makar and the Avalanche Monday.

VGK: Will there be a goalie controversy for the Vegas Golden Knights heading into the 2022-23 regular season?

SJS: If the San Jose Sharks end up getting Evander Kane back in their lineup, will they turn around and trade him to the Edmonton Oilers?

Canada Hockey Now

VAN: Congrats to Vancouver Canucks greats, Daniel and Henrik Sedin, who were named as inductees into the hockey hall of fame on Monday.

MTL: If you’re up for some great NHL Draft talk, TSN draft guru Craig Button joined Marco D’Amico and me on the latest Montreal Hockey Now Podcast.

NHL

Former Montreal Canadiens assistant coach Luke Richardson was officially named head coach of the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday.
The Colorado Avalanche are a prime example of the new era of NHL hockey.

Makar may manage to get more point, but will never be “as great” as Bobby Orr.

Mrbruin4

Jim. You are right on. Orr redefined what it is to play defence. Doubt there will be another None in league right now including Makar. Josi should have win Norris this year. He was was best d man. Just not the flashiest

Orrfan

Only someone who wasn’t around to watch Orr dominate the game could EVER imagine anyone else being as good. Was it Bobby Clarke who mused that his whole career, everyone moved up to the next level as they got better and older. He said it wasn’t fair that there wasn’t a higher level for Orr to graduate to…he was that good.

Rick W Murray

I can’t believe Sweeney’s luck he should have been fired long ago. He should run for politics if he had a half a mind to he’d most likely get in.

JustJim

As you well know, Rick, when you can’t dazzle them with your brilliancr, baffle them with your bullshit!

Orrfan

I HATE WHAT DON SWEENEY HAS DONE TO THIS TEAM

Aramist70

TERRIBLE NEWS ON SWEENEY F*ING HATE HIM AND WHAT HES DONE TO THE BRUINS ????MADE THE TEAM THE SOFTEST AND TINY D!Orr will NEVER be past period !

Chris

This sucks. Sweeney is Neelys lap dog with no clue on how to draft and blames the coach first for the terd team he put together last year. I’m shocked that Bergeron is coming back after wasting his talent with a team that blew…along with pasta and marshy. Sick.

Orrfan

Well. That does it for the Bruins. Been a fan since the days of Bobby Orr. Took a break when I was furious over trading Jumbo Joe. Looks like another break coming up.

Snopro

39yrs till the Bruins won their 6th cup only 6 cups since 1924 🤷‍♂️. This should tell Bruin fans what’s most important to management and it’s not winning it’s all about the $$$. Keep going to the games, Keep filling Jacobs and his boy toys wennie and wennie’s pockets.

DANNY

Makar is a great player, better than Bobby Orr? No, not now, not ever.

dave elliott

Makar a good player but no Bobby Orr I’ve been watching Bruins since the 50’s have lost interest in this team. Go to a college hockey game.
