NHL insider Elliotte Friedman reports that if the Vancouver Canucks fire head coach Bruce Boudreau that they might be interested in this former interim bench boss.

Andrew Brunette now an associate coach with theNew Jersey Devils could be the man for the job. Brunette had a fantastic run with the Florida Panthers after taking over for Joel Quenneville but was relieved of his coaching duties when the Panthers were swept in the second round of the playoffs.
Friedman suggest that the Devils would not have a problem with Brunette pursuing another head coaching position. The question with this move would really be the timing. Is a head coaching position something Brunette wants this year? Or would it be in the off-season? New Jersey might have a say in the matter. Plus things are going well for the Devils right now.
Brunette has only spent one year as a head coach thus far, but in previous years he was an assistant in Florida and in Minnesota. It certainly seems like Bruce Boudreau's days in Vancouver are numbered.
The team has not played well and general manager Jim Rutherford publicly criticized Boudreau's coaching. It is also likely that Brunette wants another head coaching job after only getting one season in with Florida. So, this could be a potential candidate for Vancouver.
