Correlation does not equal causation. I think people are overrating his impact on that team's offense. I do not buy that the reason the Lightning are good offensively is because of Guy Boucher. And so, I do not see him as the savior to our offensive woes. Just look at their forwards...

Stamkos
MSL
Lecavalier
Malone
Conacher
Purcell
Thompson
Pouliot



That seems like a lot more finishing and playmaking potential than:

Richie
Gabby
Nash
Stepan
Callahan
Hagelin
...


I also am not a fan of completely abandoning defense. Obviously a huge part of Tampa's failure there is their god awful goaltending and back end, but I also see no evidence that Boucher can coach that part of the game.
