Are Bruce Boudreau and Paul Maurice any worse as coaches today than at this time last season or the season before?
So why were both dismissed Monday by the Washington Capitals and Carolina Hurricanes respectively?
The players had turned a deaf ear, something that happens to all coaches in all sports. And it’s something they all know is coming. It just becomes a matter of racing against time to get out on your own or face the axe. At the end of his first tenure with the New Jersey Devils, Jacques Lemaire realized this and resigned before it was necessary to fire him. Ditto in Minnesota. So coaches know when the message isn’t getting across.
