With the NHL’s trade deadline rapidly approaching, everyone in the hockey world has an opinion regarding the under-achieving Boston Bruins.
NHL insider Darren Dreger is the latest to weigh in. According to Dreger, if the life-less B’s fail to make the playoffs, heads and maybe all of them, could roll in the Bruins front office.
The front office could reportedly see a complete overhaul should the team fail to hang on to their postseason position.
If the Bruins don’t qualify for the postseason, then absolutely you could see full front office change in the offseason. We’re talking about the dismissal of Peter Chiarelli or the head coach, Claude Julien. Both these guys know the amount of pressure that they’re feeling right now. They know it because they’re living it.
Dreger adds that the Bruins – currently mired in a four-game slide – are desperately working the phones in an effort to hold off the hard-charging Philadelphia Flyers, who now sit just six points back.”
The next two weeks prior to the trade deadline should make for interesting times around The Garden. Claude Julien just made a head-scratching move in announcing that Tuukka Rask would get the start in net tonight against the Jets. It doesn’t look as though all parties are on the same page.
It was wildly assumed that Malcolm Subban would get the start tonight in Edmonton, showcasing his talents prior to the trade deadline. Instead, the B’s have created a distraction in bringing Subban up from Providence and announcing he would make his first NHL start on the trip.
Are Julien and Chiarelli on the same page ? The Bruins are fighting for their playoff lives and the teams management is worried about who is going to back up Rask ?
Things are not going well on the ice for the Bruins….and now it appears things in upper management are bogging down….
