07:19 AM ET 05.27 | Might a swap, of sorts, be at hand between Western Conference teams looking for a coach? According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, former Dallas Stars head coach Glen Gulutzan is among the stable of coaches that the Vancouver Canucks have interest in. Meanwhile in Dallas, sources tell TSN that Stars general manager Jim Nill has met with former Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff and has also been in contact with former Canucks coach Alain Vigneault about the Stars coaching job. Gulutzan was fired on May 14 after two seasons in Dallas. He compiled a record of 64-57-9 in his first NHL head coaching job, and his team missed the playoffs in both of his seasons behind the bench.

I'm surprised Lindy Ruff is still unemployed. The others? You can have them.

Vignault shouldnt be unemployed for long. I wouldnt touch Ruff with a ten foot poll.

No. Seems that acquiring good cheese curds down here is almost impossible.

A few restaurants try but the reviews are universally bad.

Apprently it could be a one for one swap.

Bam Bam to Dallas and Gulutzan to Vancouver.

Dallas gets the better deal.

You can find something that sounds real close.
