Boudreau jokes about his coaching style: ‘After about four years they don’t like it anymore, and that’s when they saw me’
Vancouver Canucks head coach Bruce Boudreau gave a hilarious self-reflective response during a chat with sportscaster Allie Berube on Wednesday.
Asked by Bérubé about the “new energy” he is able to provide to a team when he is hired for a season, Boudreau gave this answer:
Boudeau: I did the same thing — when I say “the same thing”, I mean my approach is the same as in Washington, as in Anaheim, as in Minnesota, and now here, and it seems to be working. After about four years, they don’t like it anymore, and that’s when they saw me. [Laughs]
Berube: So we’re three, three more years old –
Boudeau: We never know. Three more years might stretch it, I’ll be approaching 70 by then. I might just need to play golf every day.

In 21 games under Boudreau, the Canucks posted a 12–5–4 record. The 67-year-old guided his teams to 579 wins during his 1,005-game career as head coach in the National Hockey League.
