Bruins need players, not new coach

Bruins need players, not new coach

In the morning before many Bruins games last season, it was interesting to listen to opposing coaches talk about the challenge of facing the B’s.Typical was Anaheim’s Bruce Boudreau before the teams’ Dec. 1 game: “When you play the Boston Bruins, you’re in for a really tough game, no matter who’s in the lineup for them.”

Don Sweeney is smart pick to adjust Bruins direction

There may not have been much “Wow!” factor when the Bruins sent out a press release yesterday to announce officially the hiring of Don Sweeney as their next general manager.Ever since Peter Chiarelli was fired from the same position last month, Sweeney was considered a clear favorite for the job.And with Bruins’ fans having known the former defenseman for 25 years, there was no accompanying newness that often comes with such a hire.

Five priorities for Bruins’ new GM

Five priorities for Bruins’ new GM

Bruins fans can only hope that from the moment Peter Chiarelli was fired April 15, the B’s remaining front office staff got busy on the myriad tasks and decisions that will shape the 2015-16 roster.Team president Cam Neely said yesterday that meetings about the B’s many key loose ends commenced even before GM Peter Chiarelli was fired April 15.The fear, of course, is that the Bruins could already be behind on their offseason planning — which would hardly be ideal for a team hoping to bounce back from a subpar season.

Sinden’s role to expand

After decades as the most dominant individual on the Bruins leadership team — as general manager for 28 years and president for 17 — Harry Sinden has faded largely into the background since taking the title of senior advisor to the owner nine years ago.For media members, it was more likely to see him at a Bruins game against the Panthers in Sunrise, Fla. — near his second home — than at the Garden.

NHL Notebook: Vegas looks like good bet

NHL Notebook: Vegas looks like good bet

During NHL All-Star weekend in January, commissioner Gary Bettman was asked about Las Vegas as the possible recipient of an expansion franchise. He said the league had granted permission to the leader of the franchise bid, Bill Foley, to commence a conditional sale of season tickets. It would be an indication, said Bettman, of the hockey interest in Vegas.“This is (Foley’s) request to see if he should continue chasing his dream,” Bettman said.

Bruins likely to sign Zane McIntyre

Bruins goalie prospect Zane McIntyre decided to leave the University of North Dakota a year early and could soon sign with the B’s.McIntyre has not yet begun negotiating with the Bruins, but his agent, Neil Sheehy, said he expects to begin talks today. If the team and the goalie cannot come to an agreement, McIntyre can make use of a collective bargaining agreement loophole and become a free agent, as Kevin Hayes did last summer, eschewing his draft team, the Blackhawks, and signing with the Rangers.
