Who Will Replace Julien as the Full-Time Head Coach of the Bruins?

Well, you had a good run but I suppose it had to end. After nine and a half years of service, Claude Julien was fired as head coach of the Boston Bruins and rumors are beginning to swirl as to who will replace the Stanley Cup-winning coach.
It is clear that Bruins‘ direction was not pleased with the direction the team was heading in, with only 58 points after 55 games, but what is not very clear is exactly what they anticipated. Almost everybody predicted the B’s would be a group to the outside looking in and it appeared all but certain that Julien will be relieved of his post in the finish of the season. The impatience of this new NHL, but reared its ugly head once again and one of the greatest coaches in the league is currently looking for work — which I am sure he will see in short order. The timing couldn’t have been better for the Bruins since it was unlikely they’d face much backlash from the general public and the press together with the Patriots observing their most recent Super Bowl win with a parade in downtown Boston at the exact same time the Bruins declared the shooting.
BetOnline has put lines on who will end up the upcoming full-time trainer of the Original Six team from Massachusetts and there are some familiar names near the top of the listing. With former Panthers seat boss Gerard Gallant coming in at +200 and the very recently fired Ken Hitchcock being available in +400.
Assistant coach Bruce Cassidy will take over head coaching duties in the meantime and he is the current favorite to take over the full-time job with +160 chances. Before he had been promoted to the big club at the beginning of the 2016-17 year, Cassidy served as the head coach of the Bruins‘ AHL affiliate in Providence for five years. It is very likely the Bruins‘ management has been grooming the Ottawa, Ontario native for the big job so that it makes a lot of sense that he’s the favorite.
With groups like the Penguins, Blues, Panthers and possibly the Islanders all using this method with their current full-time head coach hirings, I really could observe the Bruins doing exactly the same thing. I’m not sure what it requires to maintain a job as a head coach in the NHL anymore however if Claude Julien doesn’t have it, nobody will.
Here is the entire list of potential full-time head coaches to the Bruins offered at BetOnline:
