Glen Gulutzan is a "strong candidate" to join John Tortorella's staff in Vancouver, according to RDS' Renaud Lavoie.
Gulutzan was fired by the Stars after the season and then was reportedly a candidate for the Toronto Marlies job, which went to Steve Spott. Gulutzan has plenty of experience and was a good young candidate when hired by the Stars, so a chance to rebuilding his rep as an NHL assistant might be a good next move.

Former Dallas Stars coach Glen Gulutzan could be a front-runner for the Toronto Marlies head coach position, according to The Toronto Star's Damien Cox.

Gulutzan was fired by the Stars after just two seasons behind the bench, but Cox believes he could be a good fit as Dallas Eakins' replacement with the Maple Leafs' AHL affiliate. In addition to his brief stint with the Stars, Gulutzan also has experience coaching at the ECHL and AHL level and appears to match Dave Nonis' desire for an NHL-caliber coach. Nonis hasn't yet interviewed Gulutzan -- or any candidate for that matter -- but that's expected to happen soon, according to Cox.

The Dallas Stars have relieved assistant GM Frank Provenzano of his duties.

The decision was made by new GM Jim Nill. Meanwhile Nill has increased AHL Texas GM Scott White's responsibilities to include being the director of hockey operations. Nill also parted ways with former head coach Glen Gulutzan and is still in the process of selecting the team's next bench boss

The Dallas Stars are getting closer to making their goal of holding their 2013 training camp in Fort Worth a reality.

"If it occurs, what would occur would probably be a training camp on Wednesday-Thursday-Friday in the [Fort Worth] Convention Center arena," Fort Worth’s public events director, Kirk Slaughter said. That will tentatively occur between Sept. 11-13. This is part of the Stars' plans to expand their footprint. They hope to hold future training camps in places like San Antonio and Houston.

TSN's Darren Dreger reports that the Vancouver Canucks have included Glen Gulutzan on their list of potential head coaching candidates.

Who knows how prominent the young former Dallas Stars bench boss really is, though, or if he might be targeted as an assistant instead. Gulutzan didn't get much of a chance after being fired in just two seasons, so he probably deserves another shake in some fashion.

The Dallas Stars would like to conduct their 2013 training camp in Fort Worth.

That's part of the Stars plans to expand their footprint. "We’re very interested in making ourselves the Hockey Team of Texas, and really the entire Southwest," Stars president Jim Lites said. "We’d love to expand our footprint from New Orleans to Tulsa to Houston and beyond. We want to get people excited about the Dallas Stars." The Stars are interested in having future training camps in places like San Antonio and Houston. Meanwhile, the Stars are looking for a head coach to serve under new GM Jim Nill.

Glen Gulutzan will serve as a temporarily guest coach with the WHL Saskatoon Blades.

The Dallas Stars decline the option year on Gulutzan's contract. The Blades, which he played for in 1991-92, are participating in the Memorial Cup playoffs. "It’s one of those things where you don’t want to prepare for it," Gulutzan said. "Certainly with the change of Joe Nieuwendyk, who was the guy that hired me and Jim Nill coming in, I had a pretty good idea that there was going to be changes. When a new GM comes in he wants to bring in his own people." Gulutzan hasn't decided what he'll do after his coaching stint with Saskatoon.

AHL Texas Stars coach Willie Desjardins has been singled out as a possible replacement for former Dallas bench boss Glen Gulutzan.

Dallas Stars GM Jim Nill announced on Tuesday that Gulutzan would not remain with the club for the 2013-14 campaign. Desjardins was named the AHL Coach of the Year. "Willie is definitely going be one of those people, but they’re still playing," Nill said. "He’s done a great job down there — coach of the year. He’s definitely going to get consideration. I think it’s important to look internal first, and he’s definitely one of the people on my list."

The Dallas Stars announced they've relieved head coach Glen Gulutzan and assistant Paul Jerrard of their duties Tuesday morning.

The Stars held an option year on Gulutzan but new GM Jim Nill was hesitant to commit to the holdover coach when he was hired in late April. Gulutzan didn't make the playoffs in either season behind the Stars' bench but both years got a flawed roster to play above its expectations and at least flirt with the postseason. It's likely that Nill, who came to Dallas via the Red Wings organization, wanted to hire his "own guy" to be coach.

Dallas Stars GM Jim Nill is open to moving up in the draft, but it doesn't sound like he would be unhappy to stick with the 10th overall pick.

"Well, just as part of my job, I've talked to a lot of those GMs just to tell them I’m here and open the lines of communication," Nill said. "We’re all aware of what each other might be thinking. I think you would get into more specifics as you get closer to the draft, but we’ll definitely be in contact with teams and we’ll be measuring their interest in a number of things. With moving up, the question is what cost are you willing to pay?" Nill comes from Detroit where he never had a pick this high, but the franchise made the most of their later picks.

The Dallas Stars are interested in playing a game in Cowboys Stadium.

That concept doesn't sound far-fetched now that the NHL has announced that the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings will play in Dodger Stadium next year. If that game is a success, then it could lead to more such contests in warmer weather cities. "You would do it in January or February, and open the roof," Stars president Jim Lites said. "You can turn down the temperature of the ice to zero degrees. What we have at the time of year is not really a temperature issue, but it’s the rain. It’s seldom humid at that time of year, but it does rain."

The Dallas Stars are expected to unveil new uniforms and a new logo in the first week of June.

The new jerseys come one day after recently hired general manager Jim Nill talked about instilling culture change in the organization. While the uniform and logo switches have been planned quite a while in advance, the timing of the news is still pretty remarkable. Let's just hope they're better than that Taurus bull fiasco from a few years back.

New Dallas Stars general manager Jim Nill said it will take time to determine the future of coach Glen Gulutzan.

Nill was introduced as the Stars' new GM on Monday and immediately made it clear he wants to enact "culture change" in Dallas. Whether that includes switching coaches remains unclear. The Stars hold an option on Gulutzan's contract and Nill was coy when asked about the lame-duck coach's future. "It’s going to be about a two-week process, and we’ll make decisions from there," Nill said Monday. "But right now, we’re going to be very patient with decisions, we’re not going to rush through anything. I’ve been sitting on the outside, I need to get on the inside, and we’ll go from there."

Stars owner Tom Gaglardi has confirmed that Jim Nill will be the new general manager of the Dallas Stars, replacing the fired Joe Nieuwendyk.

Nill will be introduced at 11 AM CT Monday. "I had a list of candidates and when it became clear that Jim Nill would be interested in leaving Detroit and coming here, I threw the list away," Gaglardi said. "I think he is without a doubt he best candidate to take his job." Congratulations are in order for Mr. Nill who was a big part of the success with the Red Wings.

It's not confirmed yet, but RDS reports that the Dallas Stars have fired head coach Glen Gulutzan.

This seems a little harsh. While Gulutzan failed to make the playoffs in his two seasons behind the Stars bench, he brought flawed teams close to the postseason both times. Then again, Jim Nill might want "his guy," so that could explain the firing.
