Yes and no. He absolutely lost the room, but much of the reason for Boudreau's stylistic changes in the first place was pressure from people above him.

On top of that, McPhee utterly failed at adding any meaningful pieces to the roster during Boudreau's entire coaching stint. A past-his-prime Fedorov is the closest thing to an impact player across three playoff runs, and McPhee pretty much loled at the idea of making his team better defensively.

I'm not sure Boudreau's status was entirely lost as much as the unsustainably low shooting percentage got into the heads of the players.

That's just my speculation, though

My stance as well. Watching the game with my Philly fan roommate and he's always super annoying during games. Starting a power hour because he calms down when he's drunk.

Good for Jagr and the Devils. He seems to be enjoying himself and they could sure use his veteran leadership.

Crazy thing is, if he hadn't left for the KHL, he'd almost certainly be #2 in scoring all time by now.

Voukon, Nabokov,Bryz....All good options

Shot of beer every minute for an hour. He can't talk if he's always drinking . Three game 7's tonight too, first round of playoffs is my favorite time of the year.

If true.

That dude should just go back to being an assistant somewhere. Just not Buffalo.

Torts really should be in a small market

He isn't type of guy who should be big media market/Fan hotbeds

Van/NYC media he was constantly at war with

Torts should join a semi-pro league where they'll encourage him to fight the opposing coach

Not shocked about Tortorella. Awful fit from the start.

My sentiments exactly. His hiring felt awkward and forced. I'll be interested to see who they hire and what they do with the roster (if anything at all).

They should have hired Lindy. They missed out!

If he gets hard up for cash, he could just do a cage match with Brooksie pay per view or something.
