Realistically, does anyone see this core winning a cup at all?

-just talked to co-workers about Torts. A co-worker heard rumours that Aquilini made the decision to hire Tortorella. Gillis actually wanted to hire the Kings assistant coach John Stevens.

Co-worker also said that Torts is on a flight from Denver to Vancouver right now.

Fonzi is coming!

As reported on Twitter: Brad Ziemer ‏@BradZiemer 59s
Am told Tortorella just spotted boarding United Flight 323 from Denver to Vancouver. Can't imagine he's coming for another interview


YVR's website confirms the flight arrival:

Friday, June 21, 2013
13:12 United Airlines UA323 Denver (DEN) On Time E78

Haha... Imagine this:

Gillis: Hey Glen, wanna trade coaches?
Sather: Sure let's do it! Fire yours first, and then I'll fire mine so it doesn't look as obvious.
Gillis: You have yourself a deal.

#Canucks core players have been involved in coaching process. From what I have heard, Sedins, in particular, were pushing for Tortorella.

Well the Sedins aren't going to get in anyone's face, that's for sure. Torts has the ability to challenge guys in the room, something that the *ahem* leaders of the team seemingly don't do.

A legitimate concern is if Kesler couldn't get along with AV, how the hell is he going to get along with Tortorella... but at the same time Kes likes to prove people wrong so Torts might be able to get a lot out of him.. time may tell.

inb4 Torts convinces Gillis to flip the switch on the goal tending situation

Torts likes playing a physical game with lots of shot blocking, especially on D so I hope Gillis can make some moves.....

kind of irrelevant now but

COYOTES, HEAD COACH TIPPETT AGREE TO CONTRACT EXTENSION

PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Coyotes have agreed to a long-term extension with coach Dave Tippett.

TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie reports that the extension is for five years.

Tippett had reportedly wanted to wait to see what happens with the uncertain ownership situation before making a decision to stay with the Coyotes.

The Coyotes have gone 156-96-42 and made the playoffs three times in Tippett's four seasons with the team, despite the fact that the franchise was owned by the NHL and had strict financial restrictions during that time.

In 2011-12, the Coyotes went 42-27-13, won the franchise's first division title and advanced to the Western Conference finals for the first time in team history.

Earlier this year, the team reached a long-term deal to extend the contract of general manager Don Maloney.

Tippett was out of town Friday, and the team scheduled a news conference on Monday for him to talk about the new contract.

In a statement released by the Coyotes, the 51-year-old coach said he's "thrilled to stay with the Coyotes."

"Don has done a very good job of assembling a great staff and group of players here and I like the direction we are headed," Tippett said. "We've started to build a strong foundation and we are both looking forward to continuing to build a winning team here in the Valley and taking the next step as a first-class organization."

Tippett has long talked about the need to settle the ownership issue.

The NHL bought the team in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in 2009 with the stated intention of finding a buyer to keep the franchise in Arizona. After four seasons, there still is no new owner.

But the league has agreed to sell to Renaissance Sports and Entertainment, a group headed by Canadian investors, contingent on a new lease agreement with the city of Glendale, which owns Jobing.com Arena, where the team plays. The Glendale city council was meeting in executive session Friday to discuss a lease proposal.

Maloney said re-signing Tippett was critical to the team's future.

"Elite coaching is required to win on a consistent basis and Dave is one of the best at his job in today's game," Maloney said. "His work ethic, attention to detail, communicative skills and patience make him an ideal fit with our group as we built a franchise capable of winning the Stanley Cup."

With the franchise in disarray after a summer in bankruptcy court, Tippett was hired just nine days before the start of the 2009-10 season. Still, the team went on to finish 50-25-7, breaking the franchise record for wins and points (107), a performance that earned Tippett the Jack Adams Trophy as NHL coach of the year.

Tippett was head coach of the Dallas Stars from 2002 to 2009, compiling a 271-156-65 record and leading the team to two Pacific Division titles. The Stars made the playoffs in five of his six seasons with Dallas. He was also an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Kings for three seasons.

In 10 seasons as an NHL head coach, Tippett has a record of 427-252-107. His team made the playoffs in eight of those 10 seasons.

The Coyotes failed to make the playoffs in this lockout-shortened season.

Tippett, born in Moosomin, Saskatchewan, played 11 years in the NHL for Hartford, Washington, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

-will reserve judgement on Tortorella as a Canucks coach until I see what Fonzie will do in his first season.

Give the guy a chance to prove what he can do for the Canucks.

When Gillis said in his year end press conference that he would do a "reset" on this team, he sure did press the reset button.
