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.

Not everone thinks that Bylsma becomes a top candidate for Van

A Way Back for the Vancouver Canucks!

If you want to get some good returns on the Vancouver Canucks with price per head bookmaking, now must be the time. Just when you think that the only way they can go is up, they manage to dig themselves into an even deeper hole, and the pay per head sportsbook will be offering odds longer than the dwindling queues at the turnstiles. Their loss to the New York Islanders, playing no less that seven rookies, was a punishing twelfth defeat out of fourteen matches. Conceding all seven goals in the third period left even their coach John Tortorella as confused as everyone else as to why they have performed so badly recently. This is a team that are still only six points off the final playoff spot, but have they now got any hope of a way back in?

Canucks brass must resist panic

Canuck rumour I: That the Aquilini family forced Tortorella on Gillis. Verdict: Skeptical. The choice came down to Tortorella or John Stevens, whose name you are going to hear a lot for any openings this summer. I believe there was an agreement to go with the more experienced candidate.

Flyers pursuing Canucks center Ryan Kesler?

Two league sources told the Daily News that the Flyers have tabled a “substantial offer” to try and pry Kesler from the Canucks. They have also asked about acquiring Vancouver defenseman Alexander Edler, who is reportedly on the market, as part of a larger trade – though that combined price is steep.
