“I think they made some strides last year,” Boucher told Angelo Cataldi and the 94WIP Morning Show. “Obviously it was a tough start last year at the beginning and now [Craig] Berube’s got a chance to have this team ready from day one which is good. I think [Steve] Mason had a very strong season last year. I think he proved himself as a bonafide number one goaltender in the NHL again. Certainly I think their better days are down the road a bit. We’re talking about prospects down on the Phantoms on the defensive side. So, certainly I think there’s some good days ahead, but in the NHL today I mean like if you get playing well at the right time of the year and you get confidence, you just never know. I think the parity is there. Certainly your top four, five teams are going to be your favorites, but after that you just don’t know.”
