Willie Desjardins on thin ice

From NHL.com's Kevin Woodley:

Coach Willie Desjardins knows his future with the Vancouver Canucks is uncertain, even with another season left on his contract.

Desjardins was asked Wednesday about comments made by Canucks president of hockey operations Trevor Linden the day before, when he said he plans to "look at our options" at coach after this season.

"I think it always matters to you; how could it not matter? That's your job you are looking at," Desjardins said. "But I can't control that. I can control what I do with the team, I can control the players, and I feel like the organization always has to look at things, they just have to."

The Canucks (28-30-8) are seven points behind the St. Louis Blues for the second wild card into the playoffs from the Western Conference.

Linden, asked if Desjardins would be back next season, on Tuesday told TSN Vancouver 1040, "We're going to take our time and look at our options at the end of the season, and I'll have to do a full assessment of our organization, as I always do, and we'll move forward from that point."
