In promoting Sweeney, the Bruins opted for familiarity and a subtle change in their way of doing business over a major reshaping of the organization.
The Boston Bruins have their new general manager, and it’s a familiar face to Bruins fans.
The process to hire Peter Chiarelli’s replacement is reportedly moving on to the next step.
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.
