It really comes down to what is best for him. Will he last in NJ or Colombus as head coach? Is it the ideal destination for considering how talented a coach he is? It's not like he was offered to coach the blackhawks or colorado with their insane pool of elite young stars.
Columbus would be the perfect place, I think. Low Key, no unreasonable expectations out of the gate, would get to shape Brassard and Voracek and could take credit for their games maturing. I think you are underestimating Columbus's prospects... We currently have 10 guys all recently drafted or traded for in the last few years that will be competing for 6 spots on defense in Springfield next season, including CHL D-man of the year Savard and last years first rounder, John Moore. Also, Nikita Filatov has said he will be returning for training camp and Matt Calvert should be a staple in Springfield.

Boucher could be a King in Columbus...

Also, can anyone confirm that Boucher is meeting with the media in Montreal today? It was posted on our local paper's jackets blog a few days ago but no real reason was given why.
