Gilman throwing the brakes on this apparently, says nothing's finalized yet...but if Arniel says he's back, that's good enough for me.

Arniel works with young kids better. I'd rather he be the guy to bring up our prospects than a guy like MacT.

I'm actually against this move. I didn't think his coaching style fit for developing offense. But then I can't be sure because the Moose/Wolves have struggled to score a bit for the past two season.


Willing to keep an open mind, but I liked MacT as coach more... I know that I'm in the minority.

Arniel, like Deboer picked a bad team to go to for his first NHL job, (FLA, btw). Just a bad situation to get into, but it's an NHL job and those don't come around too often.

Mason was horrible for the team the past 2 seasons.

I think Arniel puts in another 2 AHL seasons before he gets consideration for an NHL job again.

As for the Abbotsford Heat, no way should the Nucks move the farm team to BC. The closest AHL opponent for them would be in Oklahoma City with the Oil Barons. No need to be at least 2 time zones away from any other AHL team.

As a potential replacement for you-know-who...?

I like this move, but was disappointed to see MacT go all the same.

True, but they don't own the rink, do they?

I have heard from an inisder source (have no idea as to the reliability) that the Canucks are waiting for the lease agreement with the Flames to end in Abbotsford so that they can move in or possibly, the Canucks may bring in their own AHL team to play out of Rogers Arena.

That would go against all the advantages of having an affiliate in Chicago MG talked about.

What else was he supposed to say about the only possible option at the time?

Didn't he go out of his way to mention the fact though? He could have just said they're a good organization, they want to win every year like us and are run like an NHL team, demand excellence from everybody and hold themselves to the highest standard, yada yada. It is true after all - you want your prospects to travel as little as possible so it saves more time for practicing. Abbotsford is just so far away from every other AHL team.

Perhaps now they've reconsidered. There's something to be said about having the prospects be close to your NHL team and being able to use the same facilities and perhaps even some of the same trainers. It's the way things work in soccer (the academy is always with the main club) and it works really well.

Kirk Muller was one of the guys who said straight out that if a guy wants to be a head coach in the NHL, go to the AHL and run his own bench

Hmm. Do you think it'll outweigh the downside of the extra travel though?
