Boston Bruins elevate Don Sweeney to general manager

BOSTON (AP) 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.

"He's the coach of the Boston Bruins as of today, for sure," Sweeney said Wednesday in a news conference after he was promoted to become the eighth GM in the 81-year history of the Original Six franchise. "I think tremendously of him as a coach and as a person. It's just a matter of lining up things that I believe in."

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.
