For better or worse, the Don Sweeney era has officially been extended by the Boston Bruins.

Sweeney has signed a multi-year extension as general manager, the team announced on Monday. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“Having had the pleasure of working closely with Don for over a decade, I have seen firsthand his tireless work ethic when it comes to all aspects of front office management,” Bruins president Cam Neely said in a press release. strives to do everything possible to give the Boston Bruins the best chance of winning every season. I look forward to continuing to work with Don as we strive to bring another championship to this city and our fans.”

Can the Bruins learn from the Stanley Cup-winning Avalanche in team building?

Sweeney took over as general manager of the Bruins in 2015. The Bruins have made the playoffs in six of his seven seasons under his leadership, including reaching Game 7 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Finals. However, that 2019 season was the only time during Sweeney’s tenure that Boston went through the second round.

The Bruins’ draft under Sweeney was one of the worst in the league, as evidenced by the brutal 2015 NHL Entry Draft, when Boston took three straight first-round picks and missed two of them, missing several stars in the process. Free will has also been an area of ​​failure for Sweeney. In Sweeney’s defense, his performance in the trading market was pretty strong.

Overall, the re-signing of Sweeney and fire head coach Bruce Cassidy last month. Cassidy squeezed a lot of production out of Sweeney’s imperfect line-up.
