Thank god I don't have to hear Toc on the NHL on TNT anymore. He's an awful broadcaster. Better coach.

Bruce is getting a paycheck most all people would envy. No, nobody treated him unfairly.

Bruce's reg. season win % is second only to Scotty Bowman lol. It's not the coach. It's ownerships refusal to stop meddling in Team affairs, MNGT's inability to provide a winning roster and the country club atmosphere in Van and the players attitudes towards what it take to have a championship club. Not sure how Tocchet will fix that other than another Travis Green or Torts approach. 36 games left and the club is 7 games below .500. Intentional tank might be on for Bedard here.

Garbage how Bruce was treated by owner/management. Huge kudos to the fans though for all the support and love they showed Bruce there. Toc is not a great coach and with this roster, which is only going to get worse after they trade off some, things aren’t getting better. If I was Toc Id be second guessing going in there with how they are conducting themselves and treated Bruce.

Rutherford's actions during the past week are those of someone who is starting to lose their mental capabilities with age. The old coot has has always been a bit obnoxious and cold. In 50+ years of watching hockey I can't remember ever hearing a GM actually says he's looking to replace his coach before firing him. There was only a handful of times where they openly talked about trading a player who hadn't requested a trade. I feel bad for Boudreau having gone through that but l the only thing he's really owed is an apology for having not dealt with the situation properly (and of course his salary). At least he will be able to look back and know that his players and fans supported him through this.

I like Boudreau but I don’t see him getting another head coaching job. His firing was horribly handled. Tocchet is frequently mentioned for coaching openings but I’m guessing this is his 1st offer since AZ.

The Canucks fired the wrong person, their MAFIA OWNER should of fired Jim Rutherford!! Rutherford who the Penguins disposed of because of dementia should NEVER OF BEEN HIRED! Is it not funny that all the dummies running hockey teams in the NHL, are from Canadian Teams! When is the last time a Canadian team won a cup? Hockey is Canada's National Pastime, but the way the NHL teams run their organizations, it's a real disgrace. I pray that Bruce gets another chance, he is one hell of a coach!

Despicable treatment by Rutherford. No good reason for it.

With Bruce's defensive minded scheme, the Bills could use a Defensive Coordinator!

Yeah, Babcock probably wanted too much to come out of retirement.

Whether they wanted to fire Boudreau - deserved or not - is up to them.

How they went about it was absolute garbage and no one deserves that type of treatment.

The answer to the question is no. The Canucks did Bruce dirty and they embarrassed themselves.
