from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province,
Whether or not there is anything to the Trevor-Linden-for-president rumors out there, it certainly sounds like something that would please the Canucks’ fan base regardless of whether it’s an astute move or not — something that won’t be known until it’s well down the road.
A businessman just looking at the Canucks’ bottom line in the next year or so would be particularly attracted to an incoming-Linden’s effect on season ticket sales, as his presence might produce a lesser drop-off than might be expected after this season. But the problem seems to be that this move is being made to keep the present coach in place.
Therein lies the problem.
If John Tortorella stays, you will still likely be looking at the Sedins playing all that time and putting up 50-point, injury-filled seasons. How that’s going to lead to more wins and, even more improbably, more entertainment is a total mystery.
