Bruce Boudreau A Winner & A Loser

DC Sports Nexus ---- Monday, November 28, 2011

Bruce Boudreau started his coaching career in 1990 when he was a player-coach for the Fort Wayne Komets of the IHL. 20 years and 19 seasons later, Boudreau was fired from his job with the Washington Capitals. All Bruce has done in his career is win...kind of...

FIRED

Lots of these stats aren't really fair. So many teams make the playoffs that looking merely at Playoff losses doesnt' tell the whole story. However that is a lot of Lost in Round 1, and only 2 Championships. Maybe it was better to get the firing over with before another playoff "Lost In Round 1"
