TSN is reporting that the Canucks have fired assistant coaches Mike Johnston and Jack McIlhargey. Johnston was MCs right hand man and speculation abounded that he may have been too close to MC to stay with the Canucks organization and its new world order. It seems that was the case. Down to brass tacks, I offer him up as a very serious candidate for either the Monarchs head-coaching job or as an assistant coach for MC yet again. Any thoughts on this? Do you think a coach would rather be a head coach in the AHL or an assistant coach in the big show?
