There are some insiders wondering if any more news is coming, which could explain the delay in announcing the coach change. That news could include a new general manager replacing Jim Benning, though that has not been confirmed.

The Cancuks need a big makeover after losing to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night. Now it’s 8-15-2 in the season, the bottom team in the Pacific Division and the lineup have been booed a lot, with a jersey being thrown on the ice during Saturday night’s game. There was a lot of talk during the Hockey Nights broadcast in Canada that change was inevitable and it seems to have already begun.

In Boudreau, the Canucks are acquiring a coach who has spent time with the Washington Capitals, Anaheim Ducks and most recently the Minnesota Wild. He was behind the bench in 984 NHL games and had 567 wins, 302 losses and 115 losses in extra time. He won the Jack Adams Award in 2007-08.

At the same time, Boureau has his detractors and there are plenty of fans in Vancouver who have taken to social media to suggest that he is not the answer to the Canucks’ woes. While these fans want change, they don’t believe this is the right kind of change that will get the Canucks back on track.

Time will tell and it is expected that Boudreau will likely not sign a temporary, one-year contract. Pierre LeBrun is reporting It’s a two-year contract. It’s not entirely clear who hired it.
