What if veteran Bruce Boudreau was the solution for the Montreal Canadiens' power play, alongside Martin St-Louis?

Boudreau has recently made some interesting comments about the Canadiens.

He notably expressed clear approval for Kent Hughes' decision to extend Martin St-Louis' contract. He had very high praise for the Canadiens' head coach and also shared his thoughts on the organization's plans. Interesting.

Bruce Boudreau is a big fan of the Montreal Canadiens' direction

Here's a snippet.

"Now, they need to take the next step. They'll be under a bit more pressure to start winning as early as next year, and I believe the fans in Montreal deserve to start seeing improvements in results, so it will be very interesting.

I believe that starting next year, they'll want to win more. I think they'll be busy this summer trying to acquire good players. Obviously, Juraj Slafkovsky has made it very clear that he can play, they have good young players, so I think next year Montreal will make its mark and attempt to qualify.

Now, they need to win hockey games." - Bruce Boudreau

There's also the power play, which needs to improve if the Canadiens want to reach the next level.
