St. Louis Blues have good time now, some teams go up and down and Vancouver Canucks are sinking deeper. If KHL, Extraliga in Czech republic is all about play offs, we know right now that the Canucks will have nice summer. I mean long summer because they are certainly far away from hope to be a part of the play offs. Tensions are rising and speculation about job of coach John Tortorella who came from NY Rangers last season.
The Canucks hardly missed play off berth in last season, compared to on- off team like the Rangers, but it is different story now. The GM of Vancouver Canucks refused to comment on current situation and John Tortorella who has signed 5 years contract with the team. Will ,Tortie' pay the price?
Elliotte Friedman explains why GM Gillis remains without comments and easy solution:
Tortorella ($8 million) and Gillis (at least the same) each have four years remaining on their contracts. The Luongo deal saved the organization approximately $28 million in cash, but are you immediately going to start eating half of it?
If I was advising the Aquilinis, I'd be asking them the following questions: If you supported Gillis's deadline plan, is it really a good idea to fire him a week later? Isn't it worth seeing who your most competitive people and players are during this stretch to help make the best long-term assessments about your organization?
The cybersphere including Twitter is another cup of tea and war zone. If Tortorella calls 7 goals in the period as a kick in the teeth,Friedman also shares his opinions on Twitter.Follow Follow
