  1. Anybody but Newell Brown and Nolan Baumgartner is a win

  3. He didn't "run back to Montreal", like he was some kind of rat. Montreal's affiliate team hired him initially, and he got promoted. He's paid his dues.

  4. Right? He was born in Quebec. "Run back to Montreal" is a funny way of saying returned home..

  5. Don’t care. Need to sign Clarke. He’s the important guy.

  6. Apparently Brad Shaw is the other name associated with the Canucks. It was announced last month that Shaw wouldn’t be returning to Columbus, so he’s available. He’s a 23 year veteran coach, 18 spent in the NHL as either an assistant or associate, and he played around 1000 games as a defenseman, split between the NHL, AHL, and IHL. If hired, Shaw would obviously be the Baumgartner replacement. EDIT: Muller and Shaw also worked on the same coaching staff in St. Louis, from 2014-16, under Hitchcock.

  7. Matthews deserves it. He showed a lot of sportsmanship only scoring one goal against the Habs. A true gentleman.

  8. I also like the idea of Green having someone on the bench who's not a pushover or yes man, and is maybe a bit of competition for him since Muller would make a good interim coach if need be. Not that I want to see any animosity, just new/more experienced voices back there that can push the team to be better.

  9. Travis Green: See where it says here in my contract that I get to hire whomever I want as my assistant coaches? Jim Benning: See where it says here in my contract that I get to fire the head coach.

  10. Burrows runs a similar system to Brown, which clearly doesn't work here; he is also doing well in Montreal and unlikely to want to leave. Muller's got a ton of experience and wouldn't have gotten the opportunity as a head coach if he wasn't a damn good assistant. Brown and Baumgartner were huge problems for us last year; I am hopeful that this shows that management is going to force Green to hire actual coaches to assist him instead of those clowns.

  13. Hard pass. There's nothing about his game that makes him the right fit here. First - let's look at his upside - which is misleading imo. 35 pts this year - seems decent at first glance. However - he had 7 even strength goals, 8 assists - 15 es pts is quite poor. That's with 59.2% offensive zone starts (4th highest on the Coil), with nearly 15 es minutes/game... Just under 50% of that even strength ice time came while playing with McMe1st. His secondary/next most frequent linemates were guys like Puljujaarvi, Draisaitl, Yamamoto... Horrib

  15. Was gonna get into Columbus next, but you’ve saved me the time. Also, those years with the Jackets add an Ian Clark connection. I don’t know their relationship, but past familiarity between the goaltending and defence coaches could be a good thing, if they worked well together. Seems like these two candidates have good familiarity with each other, and with some of the existing coaches (Green, Clark, if extended) which would be bonus, for the new staff to hit the ground running (if these guys are actually hired).

  16. The twins are just too smart to take those roles this early, if indeed they were offered. Especially after seeing what happened with Linden. But even without that reminder, these are guys who want to earn it, learn the business from the ground up, and make sure that if and when they are handed the keys to running a team, it’s a long term gig, and one where they are going to be successful, as in building a Cup contender/winner, and not just being window dressing or a shield for ownership.

  17. Certainly seems we can throw the “penny pinching” narrative out the window, if these are the types of candidates getting interviewed for the new assistants/associates. Muller and Shaw are not what you’d call cheap options for coaching staff hires. Both are well respected, highly experienced NHL coaches, who’ve been associate (head) coaches, and even full head coaches (Muller NHL, Shaw AHL). Not the type of guys who will be taking any “cut rate” deals for their services, or how you’d build a staff on a shoestring budget. Seems like the cost savings measures were a short

  20. I highly doubt that will happen. I have no idea where this notion is coming from. We made the playoffs the season before last. Not only made the playoffs, but won the first round being the heavy underdog. We then engaged with a slugfest and had a tight series, again as a heavy underdog. The next year we had a huge turn over in our crew. We lost our season MVP, and some real heart players. Had a tough start to the season and then start scrapping our way back into the picture. If not for covid obliterating our team, we could have had a very real chance of making the playoffs and then

  21. That always boggles my mind. It makes zero difference in a person's life, yet they get so worked up about. One of my colleagues, a grade 4/5 teacher, is a very religious guy and he has a student exploring gender fluidity this year and he's really struggling with it. As the SOGI rep for my school I try and talk him through things and that's one of the things I say to him. He gets all twisted up because one day the student seems to want to be male, other days female, others non-binary. My conversation with him is always the same.......what difference does it make? Does it impact

  22. you need to take a wider look than just one year. Under most of his career with MTL it was up over 20%. Its a very good idea, imo anyway, to bring in more experience on our bench. I'm thrilled for Burr but he's only been an assistant NHL coach for a few games, its not really possible to compare Burr vs Muller, and not sure how useful that is. I'd like both.

  24. Shaw coached the defence and PK in St. Louis. From 2012-16, the four years when he was associate coach behind Hitchcock, the Blues had the NHL’s 3rd highest winning percentage, 2nd lowest goals against, and the #1 PK%. He also helped develop Dmen like Pietrangelo and Parayko.

  26. When Benning joined the Canucks, where was his expendable elite prime asset (Duchene)? Where was his elite young core of O'Reilly, MacKinnon,Barrie, and Landeskog ? We had one young impact asset in Horvat. (and a barren prospect pool), and one impact player on the team entering his prime years (Tanev). What Benning and Sakic inherited are night and day.

  27. The USA send enough to Israel each year who then use it to buy American arms (seems like a way of using public funds to subsidise the arms industry) that would be able to pay for the costs of universal healthcare. @taxi I don’t think anyone on here is trying to say that the Palestinians are not culpable for their actions. Where as you are the only one which seems to be pushing a view that Israel only acts in defence, and this includes illegal settlements which some how are a fault of the Palestinians

  28. We really should not overlook Heimosalmi. He was far and away the best D at the u18 and Clarke, Ceulemans, Edvinsson weren't even close to challenging him even though they all had better teams around them to help them pad their stats.

  29. It's always surprising to me, the idea that getting attention is so important to some people. No matter what kind of attention that it. The internet casts a microscope on it. Those that will troll and cast ignorant opinions, just so someone, anyone, will 'see them'. I have heard some greetings in other languages translate to mean just that...'I see you'. I understand that, It takes strong person to be able to realise that we are born and die alone in this life. Some believe in a higher being to help them with this existential crisis. These gods have a set of rules

  31. it just comes down to basic respect. You don't call someone by a label they don't want. You may not agree or like it or choose it for yourself but thats not the point, its not about you. But thats where we are at. So many conservatives choose to act like bottom feeders like Nux, and they really seem to get off on it. If his actual world view is anything like what he does on here I feel sorry for him.

  34. Their power play was horrible under Muller and didn’t improve until March when Alex Burrows took over. Perhaps we should consider bringing Burrows back as an Assistant Coach instead.

  36. Imagine Gabriel playing with Petey. Maybe play Nils on RW. Gabriel would love Vancouver. All Swedish players do really. The Sedin twins could convince him to come I’m sure. Maybe that is why they are in management now. To recruit the best available Swedish players in the world and convince them to come to Vancouver. I am sure Colorado will do everything in their power to re-sign him. He is their captain and Colorado drafted him. Colorado is the only team he has ever played for. And Colorado is a Cup contender. So why would he leave all of that to come to Vancouver?

  39. Yeah, that would be nice. I know some of the European federations have tried to push for this, but the NHL is still pretty resistant. Also, re: the age 20 stuff and the AHL, just a bit of a clarification. I went back and checked some of the articles and releases, and it’s a little different than what I said earlier. There were reports that the European federations had been given the same conditions as the CHL/NHL agreement, meaning that European prospects would need to be 20 years old to play in the AHL. But this appears to be a misunderstanding. What seems
