Boston Bruins As we all know, the Bruins fired head coach Bruce Cassidy earlier this week for a blunder. The Boston

brass has taken a lot of heat this week and will continue to do so until they find a new head coach. Nate Leaman is the

front-runner for the job. Currently, Leaman is the head coach of Providence College, where he has been since 2011.

He has a 220-133-52 record since taking over the Friats, including a National Championship in 2015. Though Leaman

has it made in Rhode Island, I'm sure he'll want to move up to the big leagues at some point. I suppose there's no better

time than now. Marc Savard is another name on this list that Bruins fans should be familiar with. Savard was a

member of the Bruins from 2006 to 2011 until retiring due to concussion difficulties. He was a fan favourite at TD Garden

and is now the head coach of the Ontario Hockey League's Windsor  Spitfires. Bringing Savard back to Boston as head coach would complete

his story and provide a familiar face in the locker room. Jay Leach and David Quinn, according to the Athletic's Fluto Shinsawa

are the top two likely candidates to replace Cassidy who aren't on the list. Leach is presently an assistant coach
