The Boston Bruins haven't drifted away from their signature style of hockey.
Harry Sinden loves it.
While he hasn't always been sure that the "Bruins way" would stay alive after he stepped away in 2006.
He's of course stayed around in an "advisory role" but doesn't have any say in player decisions.
Sinden though is very happy with what the current front office group of Cam Neely and Don Sweeney have done along with head coach Bruce Cassidy.
“They came in here with a few problems. Don Sweeney’s first draft he had never seen of the players play. He’d spent all his time in Providence and had nothing to do with the three draft picks we had in the first round. He had never really seen them play at all and had to live with [the picks] who they are.
“We came out of it okay and we’ve done better since. I just think that what the team and players have established as an example for the way you have to behave and the way you have to play has never gone away. The fans have not gone away and you guys [in the media] certainly won’t let it go away. They bought into it big-time. It has a lot to do with Cam, with Donnie and with Bruce. There are so many years that I’d fear we would lose the Be-A-Bruin type of thing, which is maybe just something that’s in my mind. We had a couple of good players we got in drafts, but I never thought of them as Bruins and we couldn’t. But as long as we keep that alive we’re going to be challenging for the Stanley Cup forever.”
What do you think of Sinden's comments?
