In short, he is not someone who’s really going to help the Boston Bruins win games in 2015-16.

Claude Julien will be the Boston Bruins’ head coach for the 2015-16 season, a source told Tony Massarotti.
If Sweeney/Julien becomes a relationship that starts next season, Sweeney is going to have to show the same patience with his coach that he was preaching on Wednesday about having with his players.

James Stewart takes stock of the Red Sox 13 games into the season, and passes along a few Bruins thoughts as well as the team searches for a new general manager.
