Boudreau was also an offensive players coach when he started, and it worked. Then they overreacted and he tried to turn into a hard-nosed defensive coach, which didn't have a ton of success. That's where the problems came from.

Also not sure how you can't be a fan of his track record. Ovi exploded to being the best player in the league under him, Nicklas Backstrom also developed great under him, Brooks Laich became a very good second line player, Mike Green became one of the best offensive defensemen the league has seen in years, Fleischmann was developing well and then they traded him, Carlson developed quite well too. There is no reason to not be pleased with his track record, I'd say it's as good, if not better, than Carlyle's.
