In all the years they've been competing in the NHL, the Vancouver Canucks have certainly gone through some great (and not so great) coaches. That being said, who is the best Vancouver Canucks head coach of all time? This list ranks every Canucks coach from best to worst with the help of our users. Hockey fans like you have already voted on this list, but we want you to contribute as well. Upvote your top Vancouver Canucks coaches, keeping stats like regular season record and playoff appearances in mind.

Alain Vigneault had a great run as head coach from 2006-2013. In his first year Vigneault won the Jack Adams award for coach of the year. Pat Quinn lead the Vancouver Canucks to a Stanley Cup finals appearance in 1994. Had the Canucks been able to win a pivotal game 7 against the New York Rangers, Quinn would have won the franchise its first ever Stanley Cup championship.
