Boston Bruins: David Krejci reunion is last thing the team needs right now

Ever since the Boston Bruins canned Bruce Cassidy and convinced Patrice Bergeron to stick around, B’s fans and media have been floating the idea of a David Krejci return to Boston. And although getting the gang back together for one last run would be a nice throwback, it’s the last thing the Bruins should be […] Boston Bruins: David Krejci reunion is last thing the team needs right now - Chowder and Champions - Chowder and Champions - A Boston Sports Site - Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, Bruins and More!

Photo by Bill Wippert/NHLI via Welcome to the fold, Jim! It’s now officially official: Jim Montgomery will be the 29th head coach of the Boston Bruins. In true Bruins fashion, the team dumped the news at 3 PM on the Friday of 4th of July weekend, though it was all but announced last night. In a press release, GM Don Sweeney had this to say: “The Boston Bruins are pleased to introduce Jim Montgomery as the next head coach of the Boston Bruins and welcome Jim, his wife, Emily, and his children, JP, Colin, Ava and Olivia, to the city of Boston. Jim has a winning...

Photo by Jared C. Tilton/ Have your say! Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NHL. Each week we ask questions of the most plugged-in Boston Bruins fans and fans across the country. The Bruins are facing a variety of questions this offseason, a couple of which appear to be sorted: Patrice Bergeron is reportedly returning, and Jim Montgomery will reportedly be the team’s next coach. So...1C back, new coach. Check, check. However, there’s still some work to be done for a team that got bounced in the first round of this spring’s playoffs. I think...

Between Canada Day today and Independence Day on Monday, most of our readership will be observing some kind of holiday, so...enjoy! Yesterday was a pretty hectic day amongst B’s fans, with reports on leading candidates for the Bruins coaching job evolving into “Jim Montgomery is the guy.” We also had Kevin Weekes reigniting David Krejci speculation with an “I’m just saying” kind of Tweet, even though Krejci and his family...

Jim Montgomery appears to be the next B’s Head Coach

Photo by Patrick Gorski/Icon Sportswire via Out of a bunch of potentials, one seems to have jumped ahead of the pack. We here at SCoC were gritting and baring our collective teeth wondering who the next head coach of the Bruins will be, and there have been plenty of names bandied about: David Quinn was a long-running choice for quite some time, there’s been discussion on Jay Leach coming back to the organization, Derek Lalonde took the Red Wings job so he left the table as an option, and now? A newer face has joined the Bruins coaching search and seems to be...

Boston Bruins: Why Patrice Bergeron is greatness beyond the ice

A few things immediately pop into my head when asked, ‘What makes Patrice Bergeron great?’ I could talk about the fact that he has been on my hometown team, the Boston Bruins, for as long as I can remember.

As many of you noted in the comments yesterday, people who know more than me continue to throw different names at the Bruins’ coaching wall, seeing who will stick. Yesterday’s winners were Mike Vellucci, currently an assistant with the Penguins, and Greg Cronin, currently the coach of the Avalanche’s AHL affiliate. The wheel of options continues to turn. Turn, wheel, turn! In more certain doings, the NHL...

Shawn Patrick Ouellette/Portland Press Herald via The Maine Mariners reached the playoffs in their first season as a Bruins’ affiliate, but one can only wonder how their season might’ve looked with everyone available. The last time a Boston Bruins’ affiliate took the ice in ECHL prior to this season, the Atlanta Gladiators, led by Samuel Asselin, were streaking towards the top of the South Division standings as the COVID pandemic shut down sports throughout the world. Boston went the entire 2020-21 season without an ECHL affiliate and ended its partnership with...
