That the Canucks management team of President Trevor Linden and GM Jim Benning are talking to Bylsma, the former Stanley Cup winner (2009) and NHL coach of the year (2011) with Pittsburgh, should be no surprise. The surprise may be that Bylsma, recently fired by the Penguins, appears not to be the frontrunner in what is shaping up as a comprehensive search that will include as many as eight candidates.
Linden said this week that the coaching search may not conclude until after the NHL Entry Draft, June 27-28 in Philadelphia. That likely means Bylsma won’t be their man, as he reportedly had an excellent interview with Florida GM Dale Tallon last week and is believed to be the frontrunner there.
