CBC’s Chris Iorfida and Jesse Campigotto debate Boudreau’s future.
Lorida says “Yes”:
… take a look at Washington’s goals-against and penalty-killing rankings in comparison to 2008 to the end of the 2010 season, and you’ll see significant improvements toward a complete game.
Health is so critical to a Stanley Cup run; one is hard-pressed to name a recent team that won a championship with significant injury woes. Most teams have 12 to 15 players who suit up in all playoff games.
Washington looked like a Cup contender in February and March, but were hit with a number of injuries that took their toll.
Campigotto says “No”
I like Boudreau a lot (partly because he might be the most entertaining HBO character since Pauly Walnuts, or at least Leon Black), and I don’t like the NHL’s general trigger-happiness when it comes to firing coaches. But it feels like maybe Boudreau has taken this team as far as he can.
The guy has tried everything.
