The latest on the Canucks management, an interview with Canadiens owner Geoff Molson, an update on the Canucks and a former Senator has found a home in Chicago.
VANCOUVER PROVINCE: Jason Botchford reports the TV series “Behind The B” sheds light on Bruins assistant GM Jim Benning, who is reportedly to become the new Canucks general manager. Ben Kuzma has a list of potential coaches Benning could hire, like Barry Trotz, Willie Desjardins, Doug Houda, John Stevens and Guy Boucher.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Benning is reportedly to be introduced as the Canucks new general manager later this week. A former NHL player, Benning played four seasons with the Canucks from 1986 to 1990. That makes him a former teammate of Canucks president Trevor Linden.
