Bruce Boudreau Canucks' Coach

BRUCE BOUDREAU TO STAY ON AS CANUCKS' HEAD COACH

MAY 13, 2022  (15H22)      JON
Rumors had been circulating of variance in position between the Canucks & Bruce Boudreau during contract discussions. After an incredibly strong showing under Boudreau & over an 82 game pace, the Canucks would have made the playoffs with plenty of comfort space. Too little too late, but still a case remains for Boudreau to stick around. The hiccup was reportedly a result of Boudreau seeking an extension I.e. job security but management did not. Boudreau did have the option for one more year on his current deal, but with uncertainties in the economy it is perfectly understandable for one to desire security.

That said, the two came to an agreement to exercise that extra year worth $2.5M & Boudreau will return as the Canucks' Head coach:


Under Boudreau, the Canucks were 32-15-10, a 106 point pace. So they definitely made the right choice, as he seems to know how to make the juice worth the squeeze in Vancouver. They have an interesting team there, the Canucks. Even with the anchor that is Oliver Ekman Larsson, whose 29 points @ $7M has to be one of the worst values in the NHL ($241,379/point):


It's being actively reported that the Canucks are trying to move that albatross of a contract, and if successful that would take some serious stress off the books.

However, I wouldn't count on it, but the rest of their team looks solid, especially when Thatcher Demko is on his game. With two superstars in Quinn Hughes & Elias Petterson, JT Miller who will probably be traded for a massive haul (or best case, signed), and a stud goaltender they have all the makings of a competitive team. Just lots of holes around them that GM Patrik Allvin needs to fill.

Although they could mature their game, Quinn Hughes & Elias Petterson are indeed superstars based off of production:


With Bruce Boudreau coaching for his job, the Canucks could be a serious dark horse next season. If Allvin plucks the right strings & maneuvers wisely they could be a top-10 team next season. Feel free to quote me on that.
WILL THE CANUCKS MAKE THE PLAYOFFS NEXT SEASON?
