Boughner hired as Blue Jackets assistant coach

http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=326661

Boughner was head coach and president of the Windsor teams that won the last two Memorial Cups and says he probably would have been happy in that situation for another 10 years. However, the former NHL defenceman simply couldn't pass up the chance to make the jump after being contacted by the Blue Jackets.

"There's still something deep down inside that says one day you want to get back to the NHL," Boughner said Monday in an interview. "This is a great opportunity for me."

He'll work under new head coach Scott Arniel and fills out a staff that also includes assistants Brad Berry and Dan Hinote.

Kassian's development will now be someone elses hands (if he stays in juniors). Curious what impact, if any, this will have on the Sabres' plans for him.

The Jackets have two out of three of my "Ruff replacement" dream team.

Who's the 3rd (assuming that Arniel and Boughner are your other two)?

TORONTO -– The irony did not escape Bob Boughner.

The former NHL tough guy -- 1,382 penalty minutes in 632 regular-season games, including 111 fights -- was on a panel at the World Hockey Summit Tuesday at the Air Canada Centre talking about skill development.
Quote:
With the Jackets, Boughner will be handling the forwards and -- ahem -- the power play.

Boughner had some interesting ideas on the panel about how some minor hockey coaches are mismanaging their most important asset: ice time.
Quote:
Players should warm up before they go on the ice, Boughner said. Drills should be taught and understood and given a simple name, so when the coach calls them out, players know what to do quickly. Conditioning should also be done to a large extent off-ice, leaving ice time for skill development.

Conditioning can also be made part of skill development, as well, said Boughner. He pointed out that 78% of the game is played in small areas and learning how to play in those areas is an acquired skill. The Spitfires would have 1-on-1 and 2-on-2 battle drills at the end of practice. Boughner said some of the players wore heart monitors during practice and results revealed the conditioning benefits of those types of drills were on a par with lining up players on the boards or the lines and just having them skate.

That meant those battle drills were pretty much getting twice the bang for each minute of ice time; players’ skills were being honed and their conditioning improved.

This is relevant to my interests. Been to a few Blue Jackets games this year. The fans are considerably less rabid. I was very upset about something during the Sabres/Blue Jackets in Columbus, and I got some very dirty looks for my yelling.

Does anyone see that actually happening? I'm referring more to Ruff in the front office as I see Dineen having a shot at being Lindy's replacement. And if Ruff did move to the front office what position would he hold, and what happens to Darcy?

Not to mention that every time I see a Blue Jackets clip I miss having Danny Gare as part of the media staff.

Boog-ner

I'd love to see what Dineen could do in the NHL one day. It bears watching how well the Blue Jackets are coached this year, two good guys.
