Only speculating, but I’m pretty sure Hughes, Boeser, and Pettersson is part of that “country club” atmosphere.

Yes Boeser for sure but I still have hope for Petey and Hughes. Tocchet will weed out who is on board and who is not.

Loved Adam Foote as a player .... but he was fired after less than a year as head coach of the Kelowna Rockets ... even as his son was team captain. That doesn't bode well. 

Y, but coaching kids and pro is a bit different.

No hate for the new group. But success as a player doesn't always translate to coaching. 


This team need major surgery. Bruce had one of the highest winning % as a head coach. He knows how to win.  


The current roster needs major surgery. I don't want to see a bump this season. Just get a high pick. 





A simple check to see how Gretzky did as a coach, shows you are right. coaching and playing are different.

So, BRUCE, THERE IT IS! could be the new celebration chant after a Canucks goal moving forward?


Those that are upset at management, might feel good to send them this message. I feel this chant is a Vancouver thing, and wouldn't be the same with any other fan base in their building.

Who? FA has child abuse charges against him that have yet to be proven (or disproved) in family courts - as such he's 'accused' at this point.   


Tocchet is a convicted criminal by every definition of the phrase.

Accused, sure.  But he's not convicted of anything so he's not a criminal........yet.

I read that too.

And he openly lied about it with no issues when he stated "I haven't signed any contracts" about what, 2 days ago now?


I think Tocchet is going to improve nothing honestly. He's pretty much Green with an angry face.

I read Tocchet was required to give the tv network where he worked 4 weeks notice of leaving. 
If that’s true and he honoured his contract this decision was made prior to Christmas 2022. 

One wouldn’t want to breach a contract with an employer you might have to return to. Also he had to keep all those highly informative fans in Arizona  happy.

Rick Tocchet deleted his Twitter account this morning.

lul he knew was getting hired a month ago and he just deleted it this morning? 


Well may be he didn't want to break the news everyone knew... but still.
