A major development has surfaced involving a coaching change for the Boston Bruins and head coach Jim Montgomery.

This off-season the Boston Bruins have a lot of gaps to fill, they need center depth, they are going to have to figure out what they are going to do with Jake DeBrusk, and Linus Ullmark, and figure out who they are going to target in free agency.
There is no doubt the Bruins need extra support for David Pastrnak who had 47 goals last year, and he outscored the next closest teammate by 43 points, Pastrnak finished the year with 110 points and Brad Marchand was the next closest with 67 points.
The Bruins clearly had a scoring problem and that showed in the playoffs especially in round 2 against the Florida Panthers where they had a very hard time creating scoring chances.
A lot of people have been questioning if Jim Montgomery is the right man for the job for the Bruins, he has proved that he can coach them to a top spot in the Atlantic Division, but the Bruins have been knocked out pretty quickly in both his years behind the bench. Montgomery prefers the Bruins to take quality shots over quantity and a lot of people have been questioning if this is the right type of approach for the Bruins.
Next year is a big year for Montgomery as he heads into his final year of his deal, and if he can't prove to be able to get the most out of the Bruins him time in Boston might be coming to an end.
As seen on Insidetherink - Is Jim Montgomery the Right Man to Lead the Boston Bruins?
