Great to see Clark is back....and NB is not!  Was listening on the drive home from work ... let out a little "woo" for good measure!

I gave out a big woo when I found this out

There are currently 4 head coaching vacancies right now.

- Seattle

- Columbus

- Rangers

- Arizona

 

I'd be curious what happens to Gallant. Because the only team that has interviewed him is New York.

Foreverblueshirts.com said the interview went well. But New York has 3-4 other candidates to interview. 

But that was back on May 15th. 

 

Doesn't look like anyone is tripping over themselves to hire Gallant. 

There's also Buffalo.  Gallant was a the Worlds so teams have probably postponed interviews.

Gallant is interesting to me. He did so well with Vegas and Florida. It's interesting to me that he hasn't been able to get another head coaching job since Vegas. 

 

He would've been one of the coaches I would have been interested in bringing here if the Canucks had not brought back Green.

I like gallant.  Wanted him pre green.  I would take him over green.  I'd find a spot in the org for him until greens gone if I could.

 

The guys a helluva coach and all he does is take teams and elevate them.

 

Problem is coaches like him are like players like robataille.  Super rare and super underrated.

 

But unlike a player you can retain a gallant in your organization until a coaching position comes available.

 

Hell is do the same with the hunters in London if I could for scouting and organizational matters.  All they do is find talent and build winners.

 

In my perfect world we poach gallant and give him a permanent home here in some fashion and Baumgartner is a hotdog slinger in CBJ

I don't get the gallant obsession. he's had 3 head coaching opportunities in 20 years and hasn't lasted longer than 2.5 years in any of them. hell, even the assistant gigs in there he doesn't last more than 2 years. 

 

I think there's something wrong with him behind the scenes. 

 

but even then, what makes.you think he can be retained until there's an opportunity? wouldn't he rather go elsewhere for an opportunity now?

great news about the Clark signing

 

i like the Shaw signing, he tickets the experienced, systems guy boxes the Canucks desperately needed on D after last year. Also like that on top of what he brings, Travis Green picked him (rather than management) so there won't be a strange dynamic of having someone breathing over his shoulder

 

Gustafson and Green also coached together in Portland. Dunno much about him. I don't dislike Brown but it was definitely time for a change

Nolan Baumgartner will continue to work with defencemen and run the penalty kill but Shaw won’t be far away for some sage advice while helping direct forwards and the power play.

^ this is from the Province, but I hope Shaw gets a bigger say in defensive systems

We should let EP run the PP. True, his coaching resume isn't extensive, but I'm sure the Vaxjo Lakers could be his reference.

Apparently it was a relatively simple and easy to execute system too ........."Pass it to me, and I'll score"

I hope that isn't true. Shaw, who has coached Seth Jones, Werenski, Pietrangelo, Parayko etc should be in charge of our D that includes Hughes, Rathbone and OJ. Also curious what he might be able to bring out of Schmidt, Shaw should 100% be the D coach going forward. Make BUM a special assistant that rovers around behind the bench but does not a 1 specific role. Better yet send him to Abbotsford and give Cull a chance to run the F's here. Sounds like Cull was well liked in Utica and might be more of a better fit to be a fresh face to help fix our PP?

Mods, could he be relegated to Eklund status on the board?

lol Drance -  Brown will be a big get for somebody? lol, Fool 

While I am not a fan of Brown and it was time for him to go, I dont see how this is trolling or unrealistic commentary by Drance. 

 

I mean, Brown has been continuously employed as an NHL assistant coach on various teams since 1996. So saying someone will hire him isnt really an unrealistic idea.

I like that Baum is being moved further down the line. The defense suffered under his influence. Having a seasoned coach come in as Greenery’s :lol: sole second in command is a great idea. His approach worked wonders for St Louis and Columbus. I can see his involvement along with Travis’ have an effect on who Benning goes after. 

It sounds like Baumgartner is still in charge of the defense and the PK, King will be in charge of the forwards and PP, and Shaw will be more of a big picture planning resource for Green.

 

I hope he is more than that. Baumgartner and King do not inspire confidence in me tbh.
