That makes it far too easy to give credit for Boudreau for the good, but to ignore the bad. If that was, in fact, the case, I'd give even less credit to Boudreau for the good, because if he had such little control over the players, the good isn't necessarily because of him.

I obviously don't know the whole truth, but I just see more question marks surrounding Boudreau's success with youth than Carlyle's. Time will tell how things go for Boudreau away from that environment.
