BOUDREAU'S TREATMENT BY CANUCKS MAKES A LOT MORE SENSE WHEN YOU REMEMBER HE SCORED HIS 1ST NHL GOAL ON JIM RUTHERFORD

JAN 24, 2023  (0H05)      JON
Lots of folks are angry with the management of the Vancouver Canucks over their mismanagement of now-former head coach Bruce Boudreau.

Boudreau is one of a handful of people in the NHL universally liked by everyone, which only makes matters worse. Canucks president Jim Rutherford is on the front lines of the criticism facing the organization and for good reason.

Many analysts have speculated that Rutherford runs the show rather than GM Patrik Allvin. Now, I don't want to go on record saying that Rutherford's treatment of Boudreau all stems back to a 46-year old grudge.

But I'm also not going on record saying that I don't think that's the case...



The two likely have nothing to do with each other, but it makes you think. A 22-year old Boudreau scoring his first NHL goal on 28-year old Rutherford?

At the very least, it's an interesting factoid. The most?

Jim Grudge-erford dragged Boudreau for the world to see over a nearly half-century old grudge. Again, I'm NOT saying that's the case.

But I'm also saying that it might not not be the case.

(Something, something double-negatives.)
DO YOU THINK RUTHERFORD HELD A GRUDGE ALL THIS TIME, OR DO YOU THINK THE TWO SITUATIONS ARE UNRELATED?
