Bruins GM Don Sweeney and head coach Claude Julien will hold their annual season-ending press conference tomorrow morning in Boston, the club announced today.
The much-anticipated announcement — without even knowing what will be said tomorrow — was news in and of itself. If Julien is being trotted out to talk to the media, and if he’s doing it alongside Sweeney, it may be a sign he’ll be back behind the Bruins’ bench next season.
Or, it may not. We’ll have to wait and see. Last year, Sweeney took his time before deciding to bring Julien back.
Certainly, teams like the Ottawa Senators and the Vancouver Canucks will be watching closely, whatever’s decided. If Julien is fired, he’s not expected to remain unemployed for long, even after the B’s failed to make the playoffs for the second straight season.
Of note, Bruins owner Charlie Jacobs, along with team president Cam Neely, are scheduled to meet with reporters next Wednesday.
