On Wednesday’s edition of Zolak & Bertrand, Marc Bertrand had one takeaway from the Bruins hiring U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to conduct an independent review of their player-vetting process.

  • Beetle has come to one conclusion

    Marc Bertrand: This was a case of the Bruins thinking they could sneak it past everybody and get a good player as a result. That’s what this was. I don’t need to hire a former U.S. attorney general to figure that out. So a lot of people say, hire me. I’ll do the job for half the price. Here’s the only reason why I believe, it would make sense for them going out of their way in paying all this money and this can’t be cheap. This is now costing them their own dollars to do this. Are they looking to fire people with cause and get out of contracts and do they need the legal firepower to do it? That was the first thing I thought of when I saw this. You want to fire guys with cause and not pay out the rest of their deals? We want to wipe everybody out. We want to wipe the slate clean. This was embarrassing. We’re not doing this anymore. Everyone’s going to pay a price. Scouts, GM, President, everybody. We’re going to have the report and the investigation to back it up without paying people once we can them. They’re going to publicly air everything that they did wrong? There’s got to be people over there that are scared now, right?
