The Vancouver Canucks have fired head coach Travis Green, general manager Jim Benning, assistant GM John Weisbrod and assistant coach Nolan Baumgartner in sweeping changes for the organization.

That issue will be resolved next week in the expansion draft on July 21, where the Kraken will be able to select one player from every other NHL team — excluding the Vegas Golden Knights, who just joined the league four years ago. The Golden Knights also won’t be getting a slice of the Kraken’s $650 million expansion fee.


When it comes to the expansion draft itself, the Canucks have little to be worried about. One of the benefits of being a bad team that finished last in their division last season is that you…
