Kuzma: Will Trotz trot in if Torts trots out?

Kuzma: Will Trotz trot in if Torts trots out?

Everybody has a good Barry Trotz story. There’s the one about how the former Nashville Predators coach showed up unannounced at a summer hockey school in the Okanagan and helped a wide-eyed little kid learn to skate backwards.

Botchford: Torts’s twisting in the wind his own doing

Botchford: Torts’s twisting in the wind his own doing

Unfortunately for John Tortorella, his team is long gone this season, but the scrutiny of his coaching is not. When it comes to Brad Richards, it’s hard to resist. Humiliated last year as a fourth-liner, and infamously a healthy scratch for two critical postseason games, Richards has rebounded rather nicely away from Tortorella and under a new head coach.

Willes: Linden meets with Neely, but it’s all part of putting the big puzzle together

Willes: Linden meets with Neely, but it’s all part of putting the big puzzle together

Trevor Linden met with Boston Bruins president Cam Neely on Thursday which means, naturally, he sought permission to talk to Bruins assistant general manager Jim Benning about the vacant GM’s job in Vancouver. But he didn’t. Or maybe he did but he didn’t make the request through official diplomatic channels. It’s hard to know. What is known, however, is two weeks into his new gig as the all-knowing, all-seeing overlord of the Canucks, Linden faces any number of challenges.

Kuzma: Could the Canucks have a coaching candidate in their own backyard?

Kuzma: Could the Canucks have a coaching candidate in their own backyard?

Troy Ward doesn’t know what to expect in the stands, but knows what to expect on home ice Friday. The Abbotsford Heat coach understands taxpayer apathy in carrying the financial burden for the floundering Fraser Valley franchise as he prepares for an AHL Western Conference quarter-final series opener against the Grand Rapids Griffins. He also knows winning eight of 10 games to end the regular season should create some sort of a buzz.

Botchford: Torres not nuts, but Canucks were for letting him go

Raffi Torres isn’t entirely nuts. It just seems that way when he tilts his head back and wrenches his unblinking eyelids so wide you can see the whites from two football fields away.

Willes: As time ticks down on Torts, the heat turns up on Linden

Willes: As time ticks down on Torts, the heat turns up on Linden

It’s been two weeks since the puff of smoke rose over The Rog, announcing Trevor Linden’s appointment as the Vancouver Canucks’ president, and since that time there’s been no shortage of informed conjecture on the future direction of the NHL team. That, in turn, has been good for the media. As for the faithful, not so much. The Canucks are in the process of taking their organization down to the studs and rebuilding with — among other things — a new president, a new general manager and a new head coach, and if the enormity of that undertaking wasn’t fully comprehended two weeks...

Jim Benning is the perfect fit for Vancouver Canucks GM, says Mark Recchi

Jim Benning is the perfect fit for Vancouver Canucks GM, says Mark Recchi

Mark Recchi knows this much about the Vancouver Canucks: He hated playing against the confident and cocky club in the 2011 Stanley Cup final to such a degree that he even called them arrogant a year after the highly-strung seven-game series. However, the Kamloops native wonders where that swagger has gone. Far removed from that championship run and in a state of franchise flux, Recchi has some advice for Trevor Linden, the new Canucks’ president of hockey operations, to fix the floundering: Hire Jim Benning to replace the fired Mike Gillis.

Gallagher: Don't expect to see the Canucks turn big and bad anytime soon

As you watch the Chicago Blackhawks struggle against the St. Louis Blues in perhaps the most exciting of the first-round playoff matchups, you have to wonder whether there isn’t an allegorical lesson on display for the Vancouver Canucks. In the Hawks we see a very gifted, skilled team entering a series with a generally very physical, bellicose St. Louis team. They seem determined to show the Blues that they too can be just as physical as they are, and if the boys from St. Louis don’t believe it, they can just watch.
