Canucks hire Tortorella as new head coach?

DH Vancouver Staff Jun 21, 2013 10:52 am

Reports indicate that the Vancouver Canucks have selected their new coach, and it’s a one many did not want to see come to this team. If the offer is accepted, John Tortorella will be the Canucks new coach. 

Our sports writer puts it best:

His brash, in your face, abrasive style is exactly what this team needs moving forward. In the past seven seasons, they have made it past the second round just once with the country club approach. With an aging core, this team only has one, maybe two seasons left in them to make a run at the Cup. We have seen the results with the police-yourself motto, now let’s get a chance to see what comes when the iron fist is in charge.


Update: 1:50 p.m.
