Now that the cup’s been smooched and the Oilers fans’ makeup is all teary and smudged – it’s time to wrap up this NHL season. I mean really, there’s only 3 months til the next one!
With that said, we need a coach. Yes we do. A little while ago (post
) we were looking at grabbing Vigneault from the Manitoba Moose – seems as though that’s still the goal (Sportsnet story
), I’m sure things will be sorted pretty darn quick. We have the draft coming up on Saturday, right here in this fair city. For info about the event check out the Canucks website
and for info about the players, try the NHL Draft Tracker (ESPN
). We’ll be at GM Place on Saturday and hopefully scooping up some audio for my husband’s podcast (Radiozoom
I’m already looking forward to next season, seeing what the Canucks will be able to pull off – who they can keep and who they shouldn’t (HockeyNW Poll). After Saturday I will officially turn my attention (fully) to the World Cup (post). Ya know unless that whole coach thing isn’t resolved and there’s trades (Luongo?) and signings yada yada… I just refuse to give into the baseball temptations… just yet.
EDIT: There will be a press conference at 1pm PT/4pm ET re: Vancouver’s new coach. You can watch it on TSN or via their website ‘cybercast’ (TSN)
