New Bruins GM Don Sweeney's top priority is determining whether coach Claude Julien will be sticking around.
Pull the plug on Julien. Give Chiarelli some ponies for an Edmonton horse. These are among the items Felger has on Sweeney's to-do list.
Bruins president Cam Neely's selection of Don Sweeney as the new GM puts the pressure squarely on the Hall of Famer to return the team to glory.
3yAs if Bruins fans didnt need any more evidence that their team simply didnt have it mentally or emotionally, the Caps 3-1 loss to the New York Rangers in Game 1 hammered it home.
3yThe Bruins clearly suffered without the likes of Nathan Horton and Adam McQuaid in the postseason. Those two should both be ready to contribute again next season if all goes well.
3yIf it looked as though the Bruins just weren't into it as much as they were last season, it's because they weren't. Well, not everybody, but at least for Brad Marchand and Milan Lucic.
3yBruins trade deadline addition Brian Rolston saw his play pick up here in Black and Gold, and although he's a free agent now, would welcome an offer back from the Bruins.
3yBruins GM Peter Chiarelli saw his third and fourth lines pounded around by the Caps bottom-sixers and will look to make a move addressing that area.
3yThere were a number of Bruins players banged up in the playoffs, but perhaps none more than Patrice Bergeron. Even so, he battled on.
3yTwo members of the Bruins fourth line, Gregory Campbell and Daniel Paille, are free agents going into the offseason. Fellow fourth-liner Shawn Thornton hopes to see them back.
