    Boston Sports Journal has officially named Joe McDonald as their fulltime hockey writer. It is a paywall site but I know a few of you have signed up.

    Cassidy is hoping Khudobin can start 22-27 times.

    On Chara

    Joe makes this promise

    I like Cassidy. He seems like a no ******** kind of guy and his interviews have been a breath of fresh air. Excited for BSJ to get off the ground with some Bruins coverage.

    This has felt like the longest offseason.

    I'll admit, I'm still salty over Clode.

    Definitely not Cassidy's fault, and I don't dislike the guy or anything.

    I feel super torn.
    I rooted for the Bills when Bledsoe was their QB against the Patriots.

    Yeah, this will get awkward.

    Becoming a fan of Cassidy.

    I still think Claude wasn't the problem.

    But I really like how Cassidy pushes back in the Chara piece. He comes across as an intelligent, analytical coach.

    massive CJ fan, he had me frustrated at times and I didn`t like all his stubbornness when it came to personnel decisions. I think CJ struggled to adapt to the belief or have faith that if he were to implement a more upbeat/assertive style that the team he had could play that way and truthfully, as Cassidy was named coach, I didn`t believe the team could play that way, didn`t think they had the horses to do it but they surprised me.

    One area that I disagree with some fans here (not you) is when they mention how refreshing Cassidy is when talking in front of the camera, if he feels a player needs to improve in a certain area, he`s not afraid to let the media know yet when CJ did this, he was throwing his player (s) under a bus, or killing their confidence. I read an article where Cassidy was speaking specifically on Spooner (sorry I`ll look for it), said almost word for word the exact areas he wanted to see him improve upon or be more committed to which were almost the same as CJ`s and fans here loved it, ate it up, when CJ said it...............broken interwebz

    As much as I liked Claude for what he did for the team and his leadership, I liked the offensive style of hockey the team played under Cassidy. I think it's a better fit going forward, especially with the young offensive players on the rise in our system.
