Since the Bruins promoted Don Sweeney to general manager, lots of folks have weighed in with to-do lists. Some have been good and some have been dumbfounding.
DJ Bean
05/21/2015 - 12:01am

Peter Chiarelli and Claude Julien would have been at the podium on Monday as Bruins general manager and head coach, respectively, no matter what.

TAMPA, Fla. -- The Bruins not going deep in the playoffs during the Zdeno Chara Window is a shame.
