Bruce Boudreau has been coaching for a long time. He has been in the league since 2007 and has been with teams like the Washington Capitals, Anaheim Ducks, and Minnesota Wild. While he never saw that great of success in the playoffs, he did manage to get his teams to the playoffs.
The Chicago Blackhawks have not been to the playoffs since the 2016-17 season. I think it is safe to say our biggest goal is making the playoffs. While I do want to see this team win a Stanley Cup, I think our biggest goal needs to be just making the playoffs.
Bruce Boudreau has gotten his team to the playoffs a lot during his coaching career. During his 13 full years as a coach, he only missed the playoffs three times. Every other year he managed to help lead his team to the postseason.
Boudreau has a 567-302-115 record behind the bench, while I do not view him as the Blackhawks number one pick as a coach for next year, I do believe he is a step up on Jeremy Colliton.
