The Post has learned that coach Tom Renney approached Messier last season about the possibility of working with the coaching staff this season. It also has been learned that Messier interviewed this summer for the vacant coaching position in Edmonton that ultimately went to Pat Quinn (with Renney as his associate).

The Canucks' trade rumour mill is starting to turn again.
I suspect that this is mostly because Canucks fans are so damn bored that they want to hear about ANYTHING, so rumours start flying fast.
The two names that I have heard as possible targets for the Canucks are Nikolai Zherdev (ex NYR) and Andrei Markov (MTL).
So who would you rather see in a Canucks uniform in October?
Here's what I think.

Turns out the NYR have decided to let Nik Zherdev go after a 3.9 Million arbitration award. As a result of New York's revolving door and cold shoulder, Zherdev is a UFA. I think he would look just dandy in a Canucks Uni.

It turns out that there are a few things to talk about with respect to hockey – even without looking at Patrick Kane’s off-ice adventures (or worse, writing article #9954 about Sidney Crosby’s birthday party). The Leafs have made some moves, Nikolai Zherdev has bolted for Russia, Theo Fleury plans a comeback, and the Sabres have signed Mike Grier.

The hockey world is roundly condemning Patrick Kane after reports that he and his cousin had been charged with assaulting a cab driver and depriving him of his fare. Some of that condemnation has occurred on this website.
