The Minnesota Wild hired Boudreau shortly after he was fired by Anaheim. The 61 year old coach has the highest winning percentage among active coaches in the NHL, and has won an incredible 8 division titles in the last 9 seasons with the Capitals and Ducks. His playoff record is where he has fallen off, winning just five series in those 9 seasons and going 1-7 in Game 7s. All seven losses were on home ice.
Boudreau has been involved with hockey for over 40 years, and he's sure to go out with a bang in Minnesota. The Wild have hit a wall in recent years, and it's possible that a veteran coach like Boudreau could take them to the next level. Success in the regular season is what has eluded the Wild of late, and if they can get a higher seed they might just be able to contend for a Cup.
