It appears the Boston Bruins have found their next coach.
Both TSN and Rogers Sportsnet have reported that former New Jersey Devils and Montreal Canadiens coach Claude Julien has been hired as the successor to ousted Bruins coach Dave Lewis.
The reports cite unnamed sources confirming the hiring with an official announcement expected Tuesday.

Bruins to hire Julien
We'll see how he does with Boston, but I don't see him making any big difference.
I'd say he's an okay coach - not that bad and not that good.

Looks like Chiarelli may have made a pre-emptive strike by nabbing Julien, who would have been a nice fit in Ottawa - also his home-town area as is the case with Murray. Now I hear Ottawa might be looking at Dale Hunter. Hmmmm.
