‘Gut Punches’ of the Business w/ New VGK Head Coach Bruce Cassidy


What a whirlwind month for Bruce Cassidy: A hard-fought 7 game series vs. Carolina, to losing his job as Bruins Head coach, to being re-hired across the country! Bruce discussed the “gut punch” of his firing in Boston, lessons from a hard conversation with Bruins GM Don Sweeney, and new beginnings with old friends in Vegas.

PLENTY is covered in Headlines this week. The guys chime in on a fast Avs start in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, the expected Lightning bounce-back, and how size has prevailed on defence. Off-season chatter includes cap maneuvers in the Weber/Dadonov deal, if Montreal goes Slafkovský or Wright, and why first overall might not be the only noise the Canadiens make on Draft Day. Plus, John Tortorella’s coaching style, and his tough task of turning around the Philadelphia Flyers. 

Coolbet Kris likes the Tampa Bay Lightning with the odds shifting against their 3-peat, he discussed the upcoming Canadian Grand Prix weekend, and how one bettor hit an unlikely jackpot with Adam Hadwin at the US Open.

Ask R&D puts the guys on the spot as a Bruins fan asks who they’d put in their Top-5 defensemen of all-time, and a Panthers fan wants to know who will be behind the bench next season. Ray’s son asks him about a ‘flood’ of emotion at Father’s Day dinner, and (of course) Bryan Mudryk has something to say.
