Sweeney apologized for the timing of the announcement and his press conference, which occurred just after the New England Patriots’ championship parade started in Boston.

On his first day as general manager of the Boston Bruins, Don Sweeney met with Claude Julien and declined to give his Stanley Cup-winning coach more than a tepid endorsement. Julien led the Bruins to the NHL title in 2011 and back to the Stanley Cup finals two years later. Last year, the team finished with the most points in the league but lost in the second round of the playoffs to the rival Montreal Canadiens; this year, the Bruins missed out on a playoff spot on the final day of the regular season.
