It’s safe to say at this point that Glen Gulutzan is going to be the Calgary Flames next head coach. That’s the impression I’m getting from this Ben Kuzma tweet, anyways.
Have been told to “bet on it” that Flames will name #Canucks assistant Glen Gulutzan as new head coach.

It’s been a good, weird run, Glen. First, Gulutzan was running the Canucks power play under John Tortorella. Since that disastrous season, he’s been running the Canucks penalty kill under Willie Desjardins. And what an excellent job he’s done. At least with the penalty kill.
All things must pass, though. And it appears as though the Gulutzan era in Vancouver is at its end. What should the Canucks do to fill that vacancy? That’s the What Would You Do Wednesday question of this week.
Last week I asked: Should the Canucks buy Burrows’ contract out?
I lean towards allowing Burrows to finish out his contract with the expectation that Boeser will get his roster spot in 2017-2018.
