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.
“Some of the guys that I like to see play physical, for whatever reason maybe haven’t played as physical as they have in the past,”
“For me, anything we can do to eliminate more shootouts is a positive,” Neely said.
Cam Neely discussed the Bruins’ drop in compete level, the pressures the team is feeling and trade deadline expectations.
How do you divvy up the pie?
Realistically, the Bruins have 4 options ahead of the March 2 trade deadline.
Considering Tyler Seguin was in the building with the Dallas Stars, the young center who’s tied for the NHL lead in points was obviously a topic of discussion.
Former Bruins play-by-play announcer Bob Wilson, who president Cam Neely said was synonymous with the team, died this week.
One newcomer who’s played a major role in the turnaround has been 18-year-old David Pastrnak, the talented Czech whom the Bruins drafted in the first round of the 2014 draft.
