Future comparisons will be made between Chiarelli’s work with the Oilers and Neely’s work with the Bruins.
The Edmonton Oilers made sweeping front-office changes Friday after another disappointing season.
It’s been one week since Peter Chiarelli was fired by the Boston Bruins, but he may not be unemployed for long.
If Bruins president Cam Neely had his druthers, head coach Claude Julien would have been gone long ago according to a report.
No matter who replaces Chiarelli, Neely and Jacobs are going to be the ones to credit with success or blame for failures in the years ahead.
With regard to head coach Claude Julien, team president Cam Neely said that the next general manager will decide the coach’s fate.
Taking a year off from competing is just not going to be acceptable. But that shouldn’t tarnish the memory of what Chiarelli accomplished.
After a disappointing campaign that resulted in the Boston Bruins missing the postseason, the team fired general manager Peter Chiarelli on Wednesday.
The Bruins played this season as though they were entitled. The players all but confirmed their inability to exercise a killer instinct on Monday.
