It’s been six years since the Bruins made back-to-back-to-back selections in the middle of the first round of the 2015 NHL Draft.
And fresh off a second-round exit, and with the player selected directly after the Bruins’ trio of picks playing a huge part in their elimination, Bruins president Cam Neely has come to terms with the fact that it was largely one big loss for the Bruins.
“I’ve looked back at that a lot, obviously,” Neely admitted Tuesday. “I think the timing of when we hired Don [Sweeney] and then the draft was taking place, [it] would have been good, I think, to have a little bit more time between the hiring and the draft. Not to say that Don wasn’t involved in the amateur meetings, but he wasn’t involved at the time, most of the time thinking that he was making the picks.”
