Are the Vancouver Canucks really talking to John Tortorella?

It seems like it'd be a match made in hockey hell, like there'd be an endless succession of yelling and glowering, of media throwing darts. But according to TSN the Vancouver Canucks have interest in the man with the hockey mouth - coach John Tortorella.

Op-Ed: Canucks Bold Prediction # 1: GM Gillis won't fire Coach Vigneault

Will, and should, Canucks' GM Mike Gillis fire coach Alain Vigneault? The prognosticators are prognosticating on it and concluding it's in the cards, that he will. But they are wrong, he won't, and nor should he. If Gillis survives, so will his coach.

Op-Ed: Note toToronto Maple Leafs - you don't need Roberto Luongo

Toronto - The Toronto Maple Leafs do not need Roberto Luongo to make the playoffs or even to have an impact in the playoffs. They also don't need him going forward from this season. In other words, the Leafs don't need Roberto Luongo, period.

Op-Ed: Mike Gillis takes asset Roberto Luongo, turns him into albatross

Maybe it's the opposite of pulling a rabbit out of a hat, what Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis did. Gillis had an asset, Roberto Luongo, that he no longer needed and instead of turning him into something, he turned him into nothing.

Op-Ed: Toronto Maple Leafs need trade, signing, something to turn tide

Toronto - Here we go: they can't afford to go 8 straight seasons without the postseason. Some think it's a lock the Maple Leafs will extend their streak as the NHL team with the longest playoff drought but, well, they are wrong. They will get there.

Could a Roberto Luongo trade be nixed due to a shortened season?

There's no need for a recitation of the NHL deeds of Roberto Luongo, even before coming to the Canucks the gold-medal goalie was an all-star. But he has a flaw and it's one that, with the lockout now over, may prevent him from being traded this season.

Op-Ed: Panthers boss dining in Vegas must mean Luongo to Florida , no?

Vancouver - It's not set in stone, or even in ice, but the fact the president of the Florida Panthers, one Michael Yormark, is dining in Las Vegas with somebody tonight, Monday, and that Roberto Luongo is in Vegas, must mean something...only we're not sure what.

Longer Luongo deal isn't done, less likely to be 'hockey trade'?

Vancouver - It seems logical, even obvious, that the longer the Vancouver Canucks go without trading Roberto Luongo the harder it'll be to find a taker willing to make a 'hockey trade.' That will force a salary dump.

Op-Ed: Luongo to Leafs looms large, or Brian Burke is done like dinner

Canucks GM Mike Gillis is talking openly to the media about his efforts to trade goalie Roberto Luongo and says he has multiple teams bidding. But the number doesn't matter, in the end it's gotta be the Leafs.

Op-Ed: Forget trading Roberto Luongo, Canucks should trade David Booth

Look, I know it makes sense to save cap space and stop all the endless fan complaints about Roberto Luongo by trading the gold-medal goalie. It just might be time. But bear with me on this because there's a far more pressing trade that needs be made.

Did Canucks GM Mike Gillies say Cody Hodgson is high maintenance?

Most guys have had a girlfriend who earned the epithet high maintenance, and doubtless there are women with stories about guys who earned it. But can a hockey player earn it? Eric Lindros comes to mind, he earned it. And now Cody Hodgson.

Vancouver Canucks out of playoffs, now comes Roberto Luongo trade

Vancouver - The Vancouver Canucks played 25 games in the Stanley Cup playoffs last season and came a win from winning it all, so there was not much expectation of change over the summer. This season, with only 5 playoff games, things are different.
