Claude Julien confirmed as Bruins head coach.
The Boston Bruins announced this morning in a press conference that they have hired Claude Julien as their new head coach. This is Julien's third different coaching job in three consecutive seasons.
Julien began his NHL coaching career with the Montreal Canadiens, then last season he was behind the bench with the New-Jersey Devils. Let's hope that he will stay for more than a full season in Boston to leave him at least enough time to undo his suitcase... There is no doubt that he can successfully lead a team to the playoffs and beyond.
Claude Julien becomes the 17th head coach in the last 30 years in Boston. The general managers in Boston over the last 3 decades have pulled the trigger very fast on their coaches.
I wish him good luck with his new team.
