Vancouver Canucks Should Consult Sedins About New Head Coach
There are obviously changes happening with the Vancouver Canucks this offseason as the team looks for their new head coach. I would have to think that the team is consulting with their star players, though, about whom they think would be a wise choice in this situation. While that may not seem like the right thing to do overall, there needs to be some thoughts from players like Henrik Sedin.
If the organization is smart, they will have talked with Sedin and his brother, Daniel, about this. You can’t take your star players out of discussions in this day and age without someone saying something. I don’t like it, and many other people don’t like it either, but that’s just the way it is now. The reports out of Canada make it sound like the team will likely go with John Tortorella or John Stevens with Tortorella being the favorite.
If Sedin wants to sign off on that idea or just wants to leave it be, that’s his decision, but his thoughts matter. He was the team leader this season with 45 points while Daniel had 40. They are obviously the best two players on the roster going into next season. I know that there will be a whole different atmosphere around Vancouver when the 2013-14 NHL season begins no matter what. It won’t matter which coach ends up with this job, and the performance of the Sedins will go a very long way into how long that coach is there. This is one of the biggest decisions that the team has had to make since making the trades to ensure getting both Sedins in the draft over a decade ago.
