Dan Bylsma, Canucks, Sharks, Devils and Canucks talk

One of the big decisions that some teams still have to make is their coaching section. Last weeks firing of Dan Bylsma means that it is likely that he instantly becomes the front runner to coach in Vancouver, Carolina or Florida. Another possibility to coach in Florida is Ron Wilson, who interviewed for the position last week.

Speaking of the Vancouver Canucks, it has been indicated that new GM Jim Benning wants to bring in a scorer via trade or UFA. Some of the names that are set to become available and who fit the billing as a scorer include Vanek and Gaborik. It was speculated several years ago that Gaborik was interested in playing in Vancouver. If the Canucks are able to trade Kesler and a player such as Edler the Canucks could have a brand new second line. Although it has been recently reported that the Canucks want to hang on to Edler, it is well known that the Red Wings are very interested in him and he could fetch a high price in return.

Don’t expect any major moves from the San Jose Sharks

The NHL’s March 5 trade deadline is just 11 days after the Olympic roster freeze ends on Feb. 23.

Don’t expect any major moves from the San Jose Sharks, who are a virtual lock to make it to the postseason, could still make a run at the Pacific Division title with a little luck, and will be getting some key players back for the stretch run.

In a conversation just before the Olympic break when asked about the approaching deadline, general manager Doug Wilson pointed to the numerous Sharks that are ready to return from injury, including Logan Couture and Raffi Torres, who has yet to make his season debut. Adam Burish played his first two games of the season just before the break, so he’ll still be finding his legs when the season resumes on Feb. 27 in Philadelphia, too.

Sharks mailbag: Return of Ray Whitney?

The rumors are already out there that Whitney could be in play, and the 41-year-old would be the dictionary definition of a rental player. A quick check of the stats says that Whitney has six goals and 14 assists for 20 points in 43 games with the Dallas Stars this season, but lately he hasn’t played among the top six. He’s in the second and final year of a two-year, $9 million deal.
