No, Bruce Cassidy was not rehired by the Boston Bruins nor the cowardly duo of Sweeney and Neely. He was however hired by the Vegas Golden Knights.

Today, I learned that it is Tuesday, not Monday. So, make that seven days and 22 hours. Thank you for dealing with me being a moron.

With his hiring, Bruce Cassidy gave a boilerplate statement.
“I am excited to join an organization that shares my commitment to winning and can’t wait to get to work with the talent that has been assembled in Vegas,” said Golden Knights Head Coach Bruce Cassidy. “It’s been impressive to watch the city embrace the Golden Knights from afar, and my family and I look forward to becoming a part of that.”
Meanwhile, there’s no news on who will replace Cassidy. Personally, I hope it’s Gritty.
