The hot topic around town this week is coaching, and who the Canucks will look at to replace the recently dismissed Willie Desjardins. We’ve already run a few profiles on some of the candidates here at CA, and there will be more to come this week. Travis Green is considered the front-runner, but the Canucks have been attached to other names as well, including Dave Lowry, Darryl Sutter, and Ralph Krueger, among others.
So, that brings us to this week’s question. Who would you like to see the Canucks hire as their new head coach?
Last week I asked: With the Canucks out of the picture, who will you be cheering for in the playoffs?
Most exciting series I think will be Sharks vs Oilers. All the experts are picking Edmonton, I pick San Jose and not just because we get their 1st round pick if they go all the way. Sharks have been there many times, and here they are again. I know Oilers are the flavor of the day, but I think experience will prevail. Sharks in six.
Cheering for Ovi to finally get his cup, and i think a Oilers/Capitals final would be amazing to watch, so thats what i am cheering for.
Having said that, Canucks need as many high picks as they can get, and so I’ll cheer SJS all the way to a cup if i have to.
Hard to cheer for anybody not Canuck but looking forward to
(1) Anaheim and Calgary. Since the Fowler injury this series will be a war.
(2) San Jose. A year older and a year slower. No pressure on Edmonton. It`s all fun, fun, fun.
(3) Burrows and Marchand.
Emotionally I really don’t care a hoot about how teams do this season in the playoffs so given that, the only think to hope for is to upgrade a late 4th round pick to the last pick in the 1st round. So, with some reluctance … Go Sharks.
