It's a poor consolation prize for losing Boudreau.

I don't really see Boudreau as a prize, honestly.

I don't there has been a better regular season coach in the modern day era

Washington rosters were completely flawed, I'll give him some pass on that. He did turn around a dismal Ducks team twice...but one of those the dive was him at the helm.

Either way, probably a top 5 coach in this league and until something changes he's a prize

Edit:
I should be saying better regular season coach STATISTICALLY.

No way shape or from should he be compared to Bowman, Burns, Lemaires, etc

Oveckin
Backstrom
Green
Carlson

Getzlaf
Perry
Fowler
Vatanen

Every roster is flawed. He's had a wealth of talent some coaches dream of.

Well Carlson was a rookie I believe his last year coaching, but point still stands (with Washington at least).

Ovechkin, Semin, and Backstrom
One stud line and that's it.
No goaltending, no depth, no defense

Same in Anaheim.

And less in Minny.

Oh I thought the Ducks had great depth.
I think last year and year before they went 7 with eventual cup champions. Just wasn't their time
