The Vancouver Canucks are unlikely to make the playoffs as their 18-23-3 record has them 12 points out of a playoff spot and eight points from the cellar of the Pacific Division.
For a team that was expected to be involved in the playoff conversation, the Canucks’ performance has been as surprising as it’s been dismal. Big changes are likely coming. And one of those changes appears to be happening in slow motion with head coach Bruce Boudreau.
Boudreau’s future firing has seemingly already been decided by the team, but they are keeping him in limbo as their bench boss for the time being. Boudreau spoke about that strange process in an emotional press conference with the media on Friday.
