Kukla's Korner Hockey

All Bruce Boudreau

from Emily Kaplan of ESPN,

Here are the coach's thoughts on the new goalie equipment rules, how to reach today's young players, his relationship with new Wild GM Paul Fenton and more.

ESPN: Everyone is talking about the new restrictions on goalie pads and goalies complaining about them. As a coach, what's your perspective?

Boudreau: You know what, it hasn't happened on our team. I haven't really heard ... I've heard about it, rumblings about it. Our two goalies have not made any hint about getting hurt more or anything else. [Devan] Dubnyk has been absolutely fantastic, so whatever he's wearing, I don't want him to take it off. I think sometimes they might be getting a little bit more hurt, but I don't think the league would put them in something that would potentially hurt them. Sometimes I think they're just trying to get back the older, bigger equipment.

ESPN: What do you do when you're not coaching or thinking about hockey? Are you watching anything? Reading?

Boudreau: I will watch WWF matches from the '80s and '90s. I have YouTube. During the winter, I can't wait to just watch hockey at night. I watch every game, every night. I know it's stupid, and I think my wife doesn't like it too much sometimes, but it is what it is right now.
