Off the board would be someone other than Stevens, Desjardins and Houda. So you're taking the field over those three?

Wouldn't have hit the roof if we signed Trotz, but I'm glad we're going in a different direction.

OV and the Troll will be an interesting relationship to keep an eye on next season.

According to the current poll, Desjardins & Houda aren't on the board.

Is the pollster aware of what's going on?

Oh, ... wait...

duh, the non-People's Poll was created before those names popped up ... which has only become front and centre during the last couple of weeks. Not convinced of Desjardins and Houda being the right guy to lead the Canucks' but I'm don't really know much about them. Stevens is the only name that stands out ... if the Canucks aren't going to recycle a former coach like Crow.

So what you're saying is - the poll is out of date. Defunct. Not totally conceived. Obsolete.
Suffering from insufficient forethought & development. And ... soon to be departed?

OR, will the poll be updated with more realistic offerings than Pierre McGuire & Marc Crawford?

If I was hiring a head coach, I would take a long look at Jeff Blashill, Willie Dejardins, and John Stevens.

Fine, but who does your cat think is best qualified for the position?

Surprisingly enough I have to say that I wouldn't rule Penis McGuire out. His time as an analyst would certainly be beneficial, after all he has seen and critiqued every coach over the last decade plus, successful or otherwise. He has also analyzed players to death, so he should be good at figuring out what makes each one tick and be able to get the most out of them. Just be sure and surround him with a strong staff.

I'd pick Hitchcock as bench boss, with Bylsma and McLellan as the assistants...but none of them are available.

Yeah, sagebrush is getting my point. He's also pointing out the obvious question everyone is asking themselves. Why hasn't Betamax created a new poll yet?

duh, what I'm saying is that you had the option of picking 'Other' if you felt there were, duh, another candidate you felt was the best Coach for the job.

What makes you think McGuire and Crow aren't "realistic offerings?" Both have coached Stanley Cup Champions. :mex:
