Yesterday, the Boston Bruins surprised the hockey world when they fired Bruce Cassidy. The Bruins coach who is respected by his peers and fans will surely become a desirable magnet for other clubs – A bit like Barry Trotz.
Training opened the door to change a few weeks ago, but since that didn’t happen, we all considered the pilot would keep his position.
But he left in the end.
The fact that, a few weeks ago, he had the right to fire one of his assistants, appears to show that the decision to fire Cassidy was made recently.
This one is really interesting and tells you that the decision to fire Boston Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy was a recent development: Cassidy agreed to let long-time assistant coach Kevin Dean into the final weeks before firing himself 🐻🏒🏆 https://t.co/0DY55QwH6b

According to what’s being circulated (and we can believe it or not), Cassidy wasn’t necessarily the most underrated in the Bruins’ locker room. It was reported that some players were not against changing the guard behind the bench.
In my experience in the National Hockey League, there is a long list of coaches who have been popular with the media and fans but not popular with the players.

Could this have a link with Patrice Bergeron? It’s easy to make connections (for those who want to be in the game of course) because the squad leader doesn’t yet know if he’ll be back in the game next year.
Asked about it by journalist Stéphane Cadoret (JdeQ), the Quebec national said he was surprised by his coach’s dismissal and that he wanted to stamp out rumors that the order came from his side.
This morning I spoke with Patrice Bergeron about the dismissal of Bruce Cassidy. Details here: https://t.co/tpwzAMlJUH

The captain was clear: he did not know that Cassidy would lose his job, he feels sorry for him … Above all, it is a mistake to think that this will affect his decision to return or not.
He left no doubt: He didn’t tell the Bruins he’d be back unless Cassidy wasn’t there.
It’s completely unfounded, so I wouldn’t put any energy into it.
It’s a waste of time and it’s a really silly speculation. – Patrice Bergeron
I tend to believe it. Obviously we could be wrong, but I don’t think it’s the kind of ex-agent of Kent Hughes to go in there with such assurances to management.
The identity of the next coach in Boston won’t change Bergeron’s still-considering decision.
– Let’s watch Joshua Roy. He can really play.
Update/comments from J.-F. Hole:
“It’s a big step. It’s physical hockey now and we know SPR has a lot of experience, not a lot of youngsters. But I think that [Roy] He has proven that he can play at a high level. »https://t.co/3Mj5AhYSMG

Quebec as a boost to Springfield.
Trifluvien Zachary Bolduc joined the Springfield Thunderbirds after being eliminated with the Remparts. This is his first practice in the professional ranks with the exception of the Blues training camp. It is not impossible to see him in this series. pic.twitter.com/9q5XlHFMdY

For a Canadian, for Marie-Philip Pauline, it’s all great news and bonding.
But the best female player in the world at the height of her sports career has to find a side job, and that would bother us too.
They deserve better. https://t.co/i3dAAR1qL8

Good news for Quebec.
– Really annoying.
Disturbing boxing scene. Simisu Puthelezi hit in the void, after being hit in the brain.
Although the referee quickly stopped the fight, the boxer is still in a coma at the latest news. https://t.co/X9uX5WysQG
