Donnie & Dhali: Elliotte Friedman on the Donnie & Dhali reveal on Vancouver Canucks head coach Bruce Boudreau‘s future and the Canucks interest in Russian complimentary representative Andrei Kuzmenko.
“I believe Rick he’s returning. I heard, you reported about the Kuzmenko conference on Friday. That he fulfilled by Zoom with the Canucks. I comprehend that Boudreau became part of that conference.
One of the important things that Kuzmenko has actually informed groups is that, you understand, there is a great deal of Russian gamers, they like specific cities. Some cities are much better for Russians than others, however I don’t believe always that holds true with him. I believe he’s searching for a circumstance where he can be effective. Where he’s offered an offense function with a coach who thinks in offending gamers.
Also, since of the method the income cap works, he can just sign a one-year offer. So he’s going to wish to be established in a circumstance where he feels he’s going to have an opportunity for success to get another agreement out of it.
So, I heard Boudreau existed. I heard Boudreau was extremely favorable about him. I believe he painted an image that this would be, Vancouver would be a location where he would remain in that function. And so, it would simply appear, I understand crazier things have actually taken place, this entire Boudreau scenario to me is insane to start with, however I simply discover it truly odd that they would state, ‘oh okay, Boudreau is part of this meeting and now he’s not part of the group.’
The other thing I would simply state about your interest in Kuzmenko, is Patrik Allvin has actually had a lot interest in him for a very long time. So I believe it simply passes simply the coach, however I heard Boudreau made a great impression in regards to what he thought, and what he believed, and how Kuzmenko might fit.”
