    I have given AV a lot of ‘chances’ and he’s for the most part redeemed himself on a few, but when the same mistakes are being made on the nights when the Canucks are totally exposed, one has to wonder what they are being ‘taught’ by their coach. Either learn new tricks or find new ways to counter a system teams are starting to figure out.

    Who would you replace Vigneault with as coach should he be fired?

    I’m sick of AV not being accountable. how else can you explain this and all the other teams of the past not being able to make past round 2? He is the consistent variable and his plays read like an open book.

  5. enough is enough with AV! time for him to start coaching real hockey, yes players need to start playing as a team but perhaps they’re just doing what AV is telling them to. if i were the GM AV would be gone and a better coach would take his place, we need a coach that can take us all the way!

    Big fan of your writing Katie :)

    Are there any coaching prospects out there that you’d like in place of AV? Nobody really jumps out for me, although I recognize that if gum chewing is the major qualification then perhaps a junior high student might be a more able replacement.

  7. We could have had Pat Quinn two years ago when AV’s contract was up, but MG decided to give AV the extension on the terms that AV start coaching more offensively (which he did). I’d still think Quinn is available even though he moved onto the managerial side of things in Edmonton. Quinn has made clear a few times that he would love to coach in Vancouver as he and his wife still have a home here.

    One major misstake is that you only focus on the first line, -drop them an put attension on the other line setup. Ask your self are they realy in the top 10 or 5 of NHL´s all line setups except evry first line?

    Do the defense have legs to do offence? Speed enogh to get back and muscle enought to take out a first liner?

    Can they do a give an go goal? Can they put the dam puck in the net or least at the goal?

    Hilarious…this teams shortcomings has never been a coaching problem. Too bad you seem to have taken TEAM 1040 and CDC as some monitor for your opinions. Terrible article. Write about what you know…and stop thinking that ineffective coaching boils down to chewing gum and crossing their arms. Oh…. and while you are at it…why dont you look at individual players play and stats under AV…and the overall team performances since he got here.
