It doesn’t matter who the bruins hire no one is going to help this team go any further in the playoffs.Too Many if’s

1) Bergy, krecji and Pastrnak have to be signed?
2) they still need another scorer
3) Swayman’s going to have to have a banner year
4) Everyone is going to have to be reasonably healthy heading into the playoffs
5)They have to restock their talent pool, the lowest in the league
6) Everyone has to play better

a lot of for if’s I don’t think they can do it
