Harry Sinden Back In The Picture In Boston?

from Stephen Harris of the Boston Herald,

After decades as the most dominant individual on the Bruins leadership team — as general manager for 28 years and president for 17 — Harry Sinden has faded largely into the background since taking the title of senior advisor to the owner nine years ago.

For media members, it was more likely to see him at a Bruins game against the Panthers in Sunrise, Fla. — near his second home — than at the Garden.

This was Peter Chiarelli’s team since the day he took over as GM May 26, 2009, and it was commonly assumed Sinden had little or no input on major decisions.

But after the club fired Chiarelli on April 15, the decision-making duties fell to team president Cam Neely and CEO Charlie Jacobs — and, of course, whomever they name as the new GM.

And according to a well-informed NHL source, team owner Jeremy Jacobs, concerned that both son Charlie and Neely lack experience running an NHL franchise, also has asked the 82-year-old Sinden to play a larger role than in recent years.
