Golden Knights hiring Bruce Cassidy draws Twitter reaction

The news of the Golden Knights hiring Bruce Cassidy, most recently of the Boston Bruins, was generally well-received.

He did finish second to Barry Trotz in the Review-Journal’s poll of who fans prefer, but Cassidy will have a chance to win over those who didn’t vote him No. 1.

It’s been awfully quiet so let’s get talking.
Who do you think should be the @GoldenKnights’ next coach?

I like the hire. Will lean on his veteran players for the system & leadership, he may (slightly) soften on the young guys, but the PP SHOULD be better!

Don’t worry he is a really good coach. The fact that Bruins fans are so upset about this should tell you everything you need know

Just to be fired in 2 seasons

It took less than 10 days for Bruce Cassidy to find his next NHL head coaching gig as the Vegas Golden Knights hired him on Tuesday to be their new head coach. Feels like a pretty perfect fit for Cassidy with a veteran group w/Cup aspirations

Bruce Cassidy to the Golden Knights is the only acceptable deal for me and I’m glad it happened

As a former New England resident and still Boston fan I’m happy that Cassidy is coming. Knights are close and Cassidy will help

The Golden Knights were already really good, but Bruce Cassidy is going to bring them back to Stanley Cup contention. I’m certain of that.

Hope everyone enjoyed the one season the golden knights aren’t in the playoffs because Cassidy with that team is terrifying
