A Broken Room In Vancouver

from Daniel Wagner of Vancover Is Awsome

Some Canucks fans might look at the way the team performed under Bruce Boudreau to finish off the 2021-22 season and believe the team could afford to stand pat heading into next season. After the coaching change in December, the Canucks went 32-15-10 — a 106-point pace over a full 82-game schedule.

Evidently, Canucks president of hockey operations Jim Rutherford feels very differently.

That’s according to Nick Kypreos and John Shannon. In an appearance on the Bob McCown podcast, the two NHL insiders intimated that Rutherford had some strong opinions on the current state of the Canucks.

“It’s broken,” said Kypreos. “He knows it’s broken…He doesn’t like the room, guys. Thinks it’s a country club in there. He’s going to change it up.”

The accusation of a “country club” atmosphere in a locker room is a serious one, as far as hockey culture goes. It means the players are too comfortable and not business-like enough, that they’re okay with losing and just there for a good time, rather than there to do a job.
