    Sweeney's Draft History Pt. 4: Little to Show From 2018-2020

    Locked on Boston Bruins host Ian McLaren continues a look back at Don Sweeney's draft history by focusing on 2018, 2019, and 2020.
    The Bruins lcked forst-round picks in 2 of those drafts, and might only see 2 players crack the NHL lineup from these 3 years - John Beecher and Mason Lohrei. Anything else would be a bonus.
    Plus, we may get some clarity on the head coaching situation as early as today.

    Why the Bruins Are Sticking With Sweeney

    Why the Bruins Are Sticking With Sweeney

    Boston Bruins President Cam Neely announced the team has signed General Manager Don Sweeney to a multi-year contract extension.
    Many fans are asking why, and Bruins CEO Charlie Jacobs explained it by saying "Under (Don's) management, the Boston Bruins have been one of the winningest franchises in the league and a perennial playoff contender year in and year out."
    Host Ian McLaren discusses the decision to stick with Sweeney, why fans are mad about it, and why this summer will be huge in terms of turning public sentiment.
    Bottom line: Fans don't want a team that's content getting into the playoffs.

    Is David Quinn the next head coach of the Boston Bruins?

    Is David Quinn the next head coach of the Boston Bruins?

    The Boston Bruins appear close to naming a new head coach as David Quinn reportedly met with ownership over the weekend.
    Host Ian McLaren looks at why he's the leading candidate in the eyes of soon-to-be-extended general manager Don Sweeney, and what went wrong during Quinn's tenure as head coach of the New York Rangers.
    It won't be a popular hire, but his coaching philosophy paired with a relationship with Charlie McAvoy and Matt Grzelcyk could be good for the Bruins, provided he's learned from missteps in the Big Apple.
    Plus, the Colorado Avalanche won the Stanley Cup, but don't expect the Tampa Bay Lightning to fade into the night.

    Bergeron's Back! Bruins' Captain Reportedly Signing 1-Year Deal

    Bergeron's Back! Bruins' Captain Reportedly Signing 1-Year Deal

    Boston Bruins captain and Selke Trophy winner Patrice Bergeron is expected to sign a one-year deal to remain with the club for at least the 2022-23 season.
    Despite the first-round loss, the Bruins had a strong start to 2022, and it looks like they're going to run it back, albeit with a new bench boss.
    Bergeron's status was a huge question mark for the Bruins this summer, and we can expect a Don Sweeney extension, a head coach hire, and some lineup refinement to follow.
    Plus, the Stanley Cup could be awarded tonight!

    Sweeney's Draft History Pt. 3.: Bruins' Next Great Goalie Nabbed in 2017

    Sweeney's Draft History Pt. 3.: Bruins' Next Great Goalie Nabbed in 2017

    Continuing a look back at Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney's NHL Entry Draft history.
    In 2017, he selected Urho Vaakanainen directly ahead of a trio of future top 6 centers. Sweeney did, however, flip the young defenseman this year in a package for Hampus Lindholm.
    The jury is still out on 2nd round pick Jack Studnicka, who's a restricted free agent without a clear role on the team.
    The big win was in the 4th round and the selection of potential franchise goalie Jeremy Swayman.
    The rest of the draft was a bit of a write off.
    Plus, controversy in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final, Andrew Brunette given a raw deal in Florida, and Pierre-Luc Dubois should be a target if available.
