In the latest breaking news in the hockey world, Bruce Boudreau has a new job! After being jobless for a mere two days, Bruce has joined the ranks out on the West Coast. Boudreau has landed a new career out in Anaheim coaching the (Mighty) Ducks and replacing former Capital assistant coach, Randy Carlyle. Moving out to the Western Conference is a shame, because it means the Caps won’t be seeing Bruce again this regular season. The Capitals only play Western Conference teams once a year, and they already played the Ducks, early in November. But, this could be one more incentive for Caps fans to want their team to make it far into the playoffs; to play a Western team, possibly the Ducks. But that’s dreaming a bit too far into the future.
Anyways, I’m pretty excited for Boudreau. He’s got a pretty fantastic location out there in CA. Anaheim is a prime location because you’ve got both hockey and Disneyland. I’m pretty sure you can’t get any better than that. But I’m also proud of the Caps former coach. He came into the Caps with no prior NHL coaching experience prior. And just days after he was fired from his first job at the post, he is immediately grabbed up to coach another NHL team. That’s just great that he’s made such a name for himself.
So will I be rooting for Ducks now? That remains to be seen. But for now, I leave you with this: Ducks Rock!
