Most Boring Team In Hockey Stands Pat

This is a good one for the "What The F**K?" department.

Alain Vigneault has been extended in his role as head coach of the Vancouver Canucks, despite new GM Mike Gillis saying he wants the Canucks to play an "up-tempo" style of hockey going forward.

Good luck with that.

Instead of getting rid of Vigneault, Gillis chose to fire assistant coaches Mike Kelly and Barry Smith.

It looks like Vancouver can say goodbye to captain Markus Naslund because word is those two don't agree on "hockey issues".

Issues being that Naslund believes a team has to score goals to win a hockey game while Vigneault insists on his "dump and DO NOT Chase" philosophy.

Either way, the Canucks look to be a great cure for insomnia going forward next season.
