He has certainly earned it, congrats to him.
Well earned, so good news!! Definitely enjoy his style of play over the guy before him...
oh the only cup champ is 47 years isn't so bad.
congrats to cassidy, when he said he needed a RW and wanted Panarin he had the right idea
The Bruins coach with the most wins in Bruins history.
Also the only one still active that won the last stanley cup in 47 years... yeah that's the one.
Oh boy... yes well deserved, aren't we lucky to have 2 great coaches in a row...
They are, absolutely. I can still give Claude the credit he deserves for the job he did here while disliking his approach the game though. If given a choice, I always prefer up tempo, offensively aggressive play over strong defensive play, but that's just my preference.
Totally agree with you here.
" The guy before him" comes out as dismissive. Although Julien style of coaching is not everyone's cup of tea, he still deserves some respect for his achievements in the Bruins organization.
sure but Claudes teams had some high powerhouse offensive #'s too. the 08-09 team was an offensive machine
The thing I like about him most is that he made the game more fun to play.
While still making players accountable, he didn't overreact to mistakes when young players were creative, and activated the defense to be part of a five man attack.
Yeah, they're stylistically incomparable and both deeply flawed in certain ways, but I think you don't get as far as the NHL without being an alpha male and sticking to what you know/believe.
Love this, love how Cassidy treats his players.
I guess it does seem dismissive, which wasn't the intention. I didn't mention Claude by name because I didn't want to incite the Claude-ites into breaking my balls over it when the focus is and should be on Cassidy getting a well deserved extension.
But as you can see, that was bound to happen anyways...
Tough to ask for more. He started out hot and the team has only improved from there each year
well earned, had my concerns prior to him jumping on as a NHL coach again but he clearly learned from his mistakes from many years ago, showed loyalty to the B`s in Providence and seems to be a much better communicator now compared to his first stint
Awesome news. Likable guy, great interview. Congrats Butch!
Also missed the playoffs his last 2 years,lost in the first round twice and the second round 3 times,won 10 playoff series in 10 years while boring me to tears.
With Cassidy at the helm, I can finally empathize with those who shat all over Julien's tenure in Boston.
I find myself at constant odds with Cassidy's personnel decisions and find much of his rigidity to be of detriment to the quality of on-ice play.
But the results belie my opinions. I recognize that Cassidy has done a hell of a job in Boston even if I'll never honestly admit it.
Well deserved, works for me.
Good for Coach Butch, well deserved.
Congrats to Bruce !
gonna screw up the cap though. hopefully backes can be moved
