Harry Sinden’s Experience Counts For The Boston Bruins

from Joe McDonald of ESPN,

You'll find Harry Sinden's name in the Boston Bruins media guide under the ownership and executive section.

The former Bruins coach, general manager and team president is listed as "senior advisor to the owner and alternate governor" right below owner Jeremy Jacobs, CEO Charlie Jacobs and president Cam Neely.

Sinden, 82, has been out of the spotlight since he officially retired on Aug. 9, 2006. That same summer, Peter Chiarelli was named general manager.

Under Chiarelli, the Bruins won a Stanley Cup in 2011 and returned to the finals in 2013. During Chiarelli's nine seasons in Boston, Sinden had zero influence on decisions and very little input.

But this new era under first-time GM Don Sweeney has an old-school feel to it. Sinden's name has been mentioned more in the past few months than it was during Chiarelli's entire tenure in Boston.
