Dave Lewis gets the axe

I had speculated this for a long time now. the Bruins, much like the Flames lacked identity and were inconsistent to no end.

"Since the season has ended I have completed a thorough review of the team and the coaching staff, and I have determined that Dave Lewis and Marc Habscheid are not the proper fit for the Bruins at this time," GM Peter Chiarelli said, before adding: "I have a short list of candidates in mind."

Lewis was spoon fed in Detroit as an assistant coach considering all of Detroit's success.
"I probably took a number of things for granted that I shouldn't, thinking that the players understand," he said then. "Where I came from, it's just sort of natural, which it really isn't natural. It's a learned process, so that's where I have to improve."
Lewis will receive another job somewhere in the organization.
What are the chances of Pat Quinn behind the bench in Beantown?

This should have been done at the end of the Bruins' season. This way they could hired someone and had them prepped for next week's draft.

I disagree. Lewis should have been fired much longer before the end of the season, right when the Bruins team was in disarray. They obviouslt lacked proper leadership.

What the hell did they hire him for?

The Bruins get a new coach like every year.
