Bruins Daily: Neely, Bruins Cut Ties With Miller; NHL Rumors

Published

Boston Bruins

Bye-bye Mitchell Miller; the Boston Bruins hardly knew ya. …thankfully.

The Boston Bruins didn’t take long to begin the process of making up for arguably one of their worst decisions of the salary cap era, if not longer, and definitely during the Don Sweeney as GM era. That and much more in the latest Boston Hockey Now Bruins Daily:

Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins reversed course and, IMHO, and I will write more later today and throughout the week, made the right decision on Sunday night in releasing defenseman Mitchell Miller after coming under heavy scrutiny when they signed him this past Friday.

In case you’ve been a way or in a cave all weekend, the Boston Bruins had left the hockey world, and even their biggest ally, commissioner Gary Bettman, bewildered as to why they would sign a convicted racist and bully that a.) never stopped being racist and bullying and b.) lied about being remorseful?

On Sunday night, they at least admitted their mistake.

In other and still depressing Boston Bruins news, former Bruins forward Peter McNab passed away from cancer Sunday. I had the pleasure of interviewing Peter on air twice and he was just the perfect ambassador of the game. RIP.
