I'm told Trevor Linden will officially be named the #canucks President tomorrow.

We will have to wait and see what the morning's press conference will bring. But where there is smoke there is fire. Despite very convincing denials by Linden on Global television on Thursday, this has been highly speculated.
Linden as president would be a much better fit than Linden as general manager or coach, so that makes me happy. I still think Bob Nicholson would be the ultimate choice.
Should Linden be named as president his ultimate job is to surround himself with as many quality people as he can. And I know on Sunday night he will get a chance to talk to one of his most loyal friends. Pat Quinn will be honoured by the team for his past contributions. Perhaps he will also return in some sort of consultancy role?
