The back half of the season has a far easier schedule with far weaker teams.  We are about to go on a massive run and end up with the 14th overall pick.

Again, that's not all bad.  Befards second contract will be 8 years at over $10m and the next 3 drafted will be in the $7m range

 

It's hard to build a winner that way

Perfect hires, exactly the type of personal we need......if these guys were in their prime and playing.

Nice one. 

 

Foote and Gonchar would instantly make us a cup contender.

 

Gonchar could help develop Hughes game quite a bit.

 

I don't know about Tocchet but I do like Gonchar hiring and look forward to seeing what he can do.

There were other options out there - Andrew Brunette not far off Jack Adams worthiness, Trotz who won't come here, Tippett if he wants the job and heck AV even...

 

All are solid defensive coaches, I hope they did their diligence. Sounds like Tocchet is a player's coach which would be nice for this broken disheartened team.

There's 25 games left in the Giants WHL season. Good to have options.

I'm going to keep beating the Abby drum because they are well coached and playing some really great hockey, with big contributions from young Canuck prospects.  It's certainly made me feel better about the future watching podz, hogz, aman, woo, bains, silovs, klim being impact players........podz and hogz especially

No to more dinosaurs like trotz

 

Brunette I would have been on board for.  I'm hoping tocchet is a placeholder for Colliton

Because Quinn was involved in the start of the Giants franchise. And I get to see tomorrow's players. I might need a break from the Canucks for a while.

Well, they didn’t waste anytime at this point. 
Some posters are likening this organization to a sinking ship with an oblivious captain and crew. It’s a fitting analogy imo.

The lyrics and meaning behind this song are really quite relevant and worth a listen. ( Language warning)

So, the Canucks fire a head coach with a winning lifetime coaching record (0.575 )  and replace him with one that has a losing record (0.406)?

To be fair, that losing record was with Arizona. 
 

We should be a better team than the Coyotes with the talents we have.

Like better as in, move some payers out of here?

Agreed we do 'deserve' that, and more.

 

What we seem to get is nothing more than performance theater. Symbolism- they are making it look like they are actually doing something.

I’d say we deserve to see what a real wholesale change to this team looks like and to explore other assessments.

 

we’ve had many many years of a roster constructed by JB. And it failed unfortunately. Let’s see what other viewpoints can bring to the table.

we may end up with a better outcome than what we are getting right now. 
 

It’s all good to be emotional so long as you don’t lose focus of how poor this team really has been for so long.
