Claude Julien and the Bruins won the Stanley Cup two seasons ago, but aside from that - and that's a big but - he's been either one- or two-and-done in the playoffs.

That begs the question: If the Bruins go one-and-done in the postseason this year, will Claude Julien be on the hot seat?

Marc Bertrand of 98.5 The Sports Hub says that Julien won't be on thin ice because he has the trust of Bruins suits.

"I don't think he will be on thin ice. Should he be on thin ice? I think that should be a serious consideration, because I think this Bruins roster is pretty damn good. So I think it should be at least discussed," Bertrand said.

Felger agrees with Bertrand, and says Julien has at least a couple more safe seasons, but Gary Tanguay says that the Stanley Cup is mostly thanks to Tim Thomas, and if Claude Julien can't get his guys motivated to play, he might not be the right guy.
