Mike Kelly was assistant coach Vigneault in Manitoba, and had even coached the under 18 Canadian team to a gold medal in 2003.
Barry Smith was assistant coach with the Nucks for 3 years and coached the Canucks' affiliate teams for several years. The thing I'll miss the most about
Smith were his between period interviews. I always thought he was insightful.
Is this overhaul completely necessary? Damn, this team is heading in a different direction. It almost seems like a bit much, but I don't know what is all going on behind the scenes.
