At any rate, it’s worth asking what will come of the likes of Don Sweeney, Cam Neely and Bruce Cassidy if this all goes to hell and the Bruins fall out of the playoffs for a third straight year.  The million-dollar question would surround Neely, whom the Jacobs obviously love. If he's moved out of his role as president -- either by being fired or being reassigned -- it would mean all bets are off for the other two. So let’s assume he
