Are we still supposed to be patient with coach-for-life Claude and the Bruins???— Dan Shaughnessy (@Dan_Shaughnessy) January 22, 2017
Shank, four hours ago:
So, is Shank now fine with the firing, but not cool with the timing? Seems to me the timing doesn't matter much and is likely a function on securing a new coach before you go ahead and fire the current coach. Anyway, if you're looking for a bit more IQ behind the firing (not a high bar to clear with Shank), check out this Deadspin article.
Bruins should never be forgiven for firing Claude on the morning on the Patriots parade. Beyond weak.— Dan Shaughnessy (@Dan_Shaughnessy) February 7, 2017
