Safe to say, if the Canucks don’t fire John Tortorella, we’ll be surprised.

    If the Senators fire Paul MacLean, I would imagine he would be right at the top of the list of candidates to replace John Tortorella.

    John Stevens and Peter Laviolette would also be strong candidates.

    David McNab, Paul Fenton, or Jim Benning would be my GM choice.

      Would the Paul MacLean lookalike move west and become a Canucks fan?

      you know who should be fired, whoever the f*ing idiot was that decided to keep Redden instead of Chara. yeah, I know Muckler was fired. He should be fired again if it were only possible. yeah, i don’t think maclean goes from winner to loser in one season. they should just tell him he’s got one season and in the meantime trade spezza to Anaheim and get their own First rounder back plus one solid top 2 dman and a dman ready to come up prospect, someone who goes into the lineup as a 5-6 dman and who has upside to get to 3-4.

    2011 seems like a lifetime ago:

    not likely …

    he’s to busy organizing his train set … cataloguing his forty two thousand action figure collection … wistfully stroking his growing

    collection of barbie dolls

    great video by way of commentary …

    i agree … if there’s no escape clause for canucks, this while understanding an experienced coach and his agent was negotiating with daddy warbucks gillis, tortorella will be laughing all the way to the bank

    now quit using caps, the habit hurts the ears and the eyes

    You know who else is on the hotseat??? RON DELORME and the scouting staff of the Canucks who have drafted shiite for god knows how long. who knows what last years draft will deliver, but even the one pick these guys thought was solid Cody Hodgson is a bust as a center and is moving to the wing.

    Schneids was a product of the goalie development and Luongo’s influence.

    Player development might need to be looked at as well considering canucks aren’t renowned for developing players (ala Detroit)…

    Kirk Muller is doneski. No one should be surprised if you hear it as early as Monday. No one.

    (Unless Ron Francis is named GM on Monday, then Muller will probably be relieved on Tuesday. One would think. I’m just dreaming how this all will go down.)
