That said, there’s another name floating around the NHL: Pascal Vincent. The Quebecer is currently an assistant in Columbus, but his name is coming up as a candidate for the head coaching position there.
Clearly, if we interview him, we’ll believe it’s possible.
Friedman points out, however, that Vincent is awaiting the Blue Jackets’ decision. He therefore confirms that Vincent is a serious candidate there, but that doesn’t prevent him from looking elsewhere either.
At the same time, if he’s going to interview with the Flames before the Blue Jackets confirm him, it’s perhaps a sign that he doesn’t have high expectations of his current club (potentially because he knows the club already has an agreement with another coach, in this case Roy).

Let’s also remember that Vincent spent a good ten years in the Jets organization before landing in Columbus in 2021. We’re talking about a guy who’s made his mark.
I’ve been thinking for a while that Mitch Love, who has been doing very well at the helm of the Flames’ training club for the past few years, is destined to become the big club’s coach. That said, a good interview with Vincent could potentially shake things up.
