LOS ANGELES -- Bruce Boudreau was hired to coach the Anaheim Ducks on Nov. 30, two days after he had been fired by the Washington Capitals. He wasn't last on the seniority list for long."I think I'm about the fourth-newest coach," he said. "That's scary."Six coaches have been fired this season and one other -- Scott Arniel of 30th-ranked Columbus -- might not last much past the holidays. The first casualty was St. Louis' Davis Payne on Nov. 6; he was followed by Boudreau and Carolina's Paul Maurice on Nov. 28, Anaheim's Randy Carlyle on Nov. 30, Montreal's Jacques Martin on Dec. 17 and Los Angeles' Terry Murray on Dec. 20.
