Sharks fan here. This is great for you guys. When Boudreau was fired, I immediately started telling my hockey friends that he would end up in Anaheim because he's a great coach and you need a fresh voice in your locker room.
Whoa, didn't see that happening that soon! Not completely familiar with Boudreau's coaching style as I didn't watch Washington that much (and when I did, it was usually to watch Ovechkin.) Interesting news either way.
Wow! I just got the update notification on my phone from espn scorecenter! Wow after a great ducks win this is a total surprise! I sure hope that all these Bobby Ryan trade talk is dead!
I can't wait to see what Bruce will do to our team!!!!
Pens fan here coming in and congratulating you for hiring BB. I think he got a REALLY raw deal in Washington due to the young leaders of that team being underachievers and not putting hockey first over their personal life/nightlife.
I hope BB brings back his run and gun system with your big guns. It was fun to watch and something I hated our team playing against
I always liked how candid Boudreau was with everything. Glad you guys got him before Toronto or someone else in the East did. Don't believe the ******** people say about him not being able to coach, etc. You don't take a team in the dumps to getting 200 wins the way he did as fast as he did without being able to coach. McPhee didn't do him many favors in Washington with getting the right personnel in making a playoff run and didn't want to deal any of the young talent.
He became the scapegoat in Washington because it's easier to blame the coach than blame high priced players.
