Different coach but same result. So can Nashville lure Noel to an assistant gig?
Unfortunately for CBJ, I think Boucher recognizes that it's an 'unlikely to succeed' situation. And why risk coaching for CBJ for two years, get canned because you don't have the talent that the rest of the division has, and then you are back to square one trying to work your way back to a coaching job.

I think he was wise. There will be more desirable coaching jobs opening up over the next year or two. His window of opportunity isn't likely to close over the next year. And he can let someone take the risk with Columbus. Someone who might not have had a lot of other NHL level opportunities in the near term.

I don't think it's a bad move by Columbus, though I don't think it's anything to be excited about. Their issues are with talent. Until it matures and develops, they'll be a bad team.
