Boudreau did a lot of good things. But it's like he himself believes he has a tragic flaw: Stubbornness.

It's like the universe writes itself out and he is powerless to change it. Sloan over Alzner. Flash over anyone (Flash was total **** in the playoffs). Neuvy over Varly. For all his good qualities, I don't believe Boudreau will ever win it because of the way he comes at the game. He turns his mind off too often.

I'm wait and see with Hunter. Give him a good team (not this year's bunch) and see what he can do.
