Report: Bruins Set to Hire New Head Coach

After firing head coach Bruce Cassidy on June 6th, the Bruins organization has been in free fall as they decide the direction they are heading in. Many thought the Bruins were heading for a rebuild, but those plans seem to be on hold with the return of team captain Patrice Bergeron. Since the firing, there has been much speculation as to who the next head coach of the storied franchise would be. Names such as Jay Leach, David Quinn, Jim Montgomery, Mike Vellucci, and others have been reported to be in line to take over.

Over the last few days, it’s been reported that Quinn, Montgomery, and Vellucci were the three front runners as they all received second interviews. It was also reported that Quinn met with Bruins ownership and, at that time, was the only candidate to do so.

The Bruins seem to have finally made their decision for their new bench boss as Jim Montgomery will take over as head coach of the Boston Bruins. His contract will be set around three years at $2 million per season.

Jim Montgomery will have big shoes to will as Bruce Cassidy recorded winning seasons in all six seasons he was head coach of the Bruins. He will also be responsible for developing Boston’s young talent waiting in Providence. General manager Don Sweeney will also play an essential role in the new head coach’s success as he must put together a roster with higher quality talent than he did for Cassidy.

Oilers Game 22: Winnipeg Jets

Not the ideal way to win your third straight game, but they did it. Up until the last seven and a half minutes, when they blew a 4-2 lead, they were playing some pretty decent hockey. I don’t totally blame Stuart Skinner for the last two goals, but it makes the save percentage worse than […]
