A couple quick things today:
– The Oregonian has a story about Portland assistant coach Travis Green. Green, who guided the Winterhawks to the Memorial Cup with head coach Mike Johnston suspended, is often talked about as a potential candidate for Everett’s vacant head coaching position. While this story suggests the Tips are still very interested in Green, Johnston seems rather disdainful of the notion of Green taking any junior head coaching position.
– The Memorial Cup begins Friday. This year’s participants are the Winterhawks, the OHL’s London Knights, the QMJHL’s Halifax Mooseheads, and the host Saskatoon Blades. One of the big stories heading in regards the Blades, who haven’t played a competitive game since March 27 after being swept out of the first round of the playoffs by Medicine Hat.
