Guy Boucher Ready For Another Coaching Job In The NHL

from Craig Custance of ESPN,

Things have gone well for Boucher in Switzerland, and now Boucher has emerged as the best available candidate for NHL teams looking to make an in-season change at head coach. There are certainly other notable and worthy candidates, like John Tortorella, Ron Wilson and Randy Carlyle, but nobody who offers the mix of youth, intelligence and now international experience that the 44-year-old Boucher provides.

Reached by phone in Switzerland on Monday, Boucher said coaching for Bern has been an incredible opportunity and learning experience for him.

“You see things differently. I look at what Paul Maurice had done going to Europe and coming back. Bob Hartley just won coach of the year and he did the same thing. You ask all those guys and they’ll tell you their experience overseas helped you become better coaches,” Boucher said.
