It’s been a big weekend on the NHL coaching beat. Former Caps coach, former Ducks coach, and always awesome dude, Bruce Boudreau, immediately got a new gig with the Minnesota Wild, where he will be great. The other team courting Boudreau was the Ottawa Senators, who settled for Guy Boucher, former coach of the Lightning and architect of that team’s 2011 sweep of the Capitals.
