From L.A. Lariviere of TVA Sports:

Boucher has been coaching in Switzerland since being fired by the Lightning in 2013. Originally hired with a reputation as an innovator (remember all the hubbub over his “1-3-1" system?), he led Tampa Bay to within one game of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final.

Boucher may not be the leading candidate for any current or future NHL vacancies, but depending where Mike Babcock, Todd McLellan, Ken Hitchcock and others end up, you never know, he could get himself in the running somewhere.
