Insider reveals Boudreau is overwhelmed

There's been loads of chatter around the Canucks as of late, but one who we're not hearing a lot from is head coach Bruce Boudreau.

Eliotte Friedman spent a lot of time on his most recent 32 Thoughts podcast talking about the Vancouver Canucks' next play.

He discussed the many informations that recently got out regarding the way he handled the Brock Boeser situation. Everyone was well aware that Saturday's Hockey Fights Cancer game was of the utmost importance for the right-winger.

Though, it was later revealed that the way he learned he wasn't going to be playing p*ssed him off even more:

Friedman revealed in his podcast that Boudreau was known to be a players' coach and that he was normally on top of things and knew what was important for his players

From Friedman's standpoint, the fact that Boudreau didn't know shows how much stress he's under as of late and that he may be losing it through it all.

Bruce Boudreau is currently on the last year of his contract. It would be understandable for him to be stressed since his career might be in play. But some are wondering, shouldn't a coach be able to handle these types of things?
