BRUCE BOUDREAU GETS EMOTIONAL WHEN ASKED ABOUT COACHING IN THE NHL

JAN 20, 2023  (17H28)      JON
The Vancouver Canucks have earned due criticism for the organization's directive with regards to their head coach, Bruce Boudreau. Despite the fact that the Canucks are 50-38-13, Boudreau is on the chopping block and is expected to be officially dismissed any day now.

Instead of ripping off the bandage, the Canucks continue to send Boudreau in front of reporters everyday to answer questions about his pending termination. On Friday, Boudreau was choked up when asked about his situation for the 500th time in the past month:


No question Boudreau is taking the fall for a slew of other shortcomings of this hockey club. For starters, trading a top-10 draft pick for this guy:

Vancouver's management holds the bulk of the accountability for this club's current position, yet Boudreau is the one taking the fall. That's just the way the cookie crumbles in this game.

But to see Bruce Boudreau - who has been involved in the NHL since being drafted in 1975 (TOR) - go through this is brutal. Mostly because this was likely his last kick at the can (although, hopefully it is not). If his career ends on this note, that is a travesty.
