I've been saying for years now that Larionov should be an assistant coach... it may even help us bring some of the Russian talent over - like Shirokov, who I fear is going to be lost soon enough.
I've been a Larionov fan since he played his first game in Vancouver ... I remember even drafting him and Krutov (yea, I know) in my hockey pool that year! I've met the man several times as well, and I can understand how he got that nick name "The Professor"!! He's a brilliant hockey mind IMO and would be a great addition to any franchise's coaching or front office staff.
IMO though, if he really wanted a coaching job, he'd have one by now... the man is way too respected and thought off as one of the games brightest minds to not have been approached already by some team.
watch us bring in someone like Ronning or Geoff Courtnall next season to be the other assistant coach instead.
