Why is AV not trying the obvious? Henrik with Bitz

87 posts in this topic

These are apparently tonights lines:

1) Byron Bitz-Henrik Sedin-Mason Raymond

2) Daniel Sedin-Ryan Kesler-Alex Burrows

3) David Booth-Cody Hodgson-Jannik Hansen

4) Manny Malhotra-Max Lapierre-Dale Weise

1) Dan Hamhuis-Kevin Bieksa

2) Alex Edler-Sami Salo

3) Keith Ballard-Aaron Rome

Bitz does shock me, I'd say with the way Booth has been playing he deserves the spot. Also Malhotra on the wing makes no sense at all.

Meh AV is doing a great job! They won with his "non-playoff" line combos didn't they?

AV is a joke, we're not going to make it anywhere in the Playoffs without the Sedin's playing together.

Why does it take AV so long to adjust? Isnt this the source of all our complaints regarding the coach? That he's too slow to recognize and adjust on the fly.

Kesler is a sniper and a very fast skater. Those are 2 qualities you need on a wing. Hodgson is a slow skater, but is a playmaker so he is fine at centre. I do agree with the Booth-Hodgson-Kesler line.

I WANT TO SEE THIS!!11!!!1

I will reserve judgement on AV and his decision making abilities after the end of the playoffs this year!!

To be Honest I thought AV was amazing last year, and through the playoffs too. The SCF's loss was more due to injuries, mental toughness, and playing a Super Hot Tendy!

I'll also state that I felt, until last year, that Joe Q had AV's number in the 2 prior years. I have somewhat changed my mind on that view, because the Hawks had a Dream team for those two years.

Who cares about a regular season win against Colorado an, 11th place team.

This sh*it wouldn't cut it, even in the 1st round of the post season.

I swear to god if Bitz is on the first line tonight, i will not stop on spreading my hate for AV's retarded decisons

Vigneault's putting BItz and Raymond with Henrik?? :huh: He might as well send out himself and Rick Bowness to play then... Henrik isn't going to get it going with those two. Get Malhotra back at centre and put Hodgson with the twins, he's been our most consistent forward next to Kesler and he isn't very good at faceoffs anyway. Or put Hodgson and Booth with Henrik. At least give him somebody who can score.

Booth-Henrik-Hodgson

Daniel-Kesler-Burrows

Raymond-Malhotra-Hansen

Bitz-Lapierre-Weise

something like that?

...Or maybe the Sedins can drop down and form a defense pairing instead since Keith Ballard apparently wants to play forward so badly.

Well this is refreshing. Usually the second-guessing happens after the game....

It wasn't that long ago that the biggest complaint about AV was how he adjusted the lines too much and refused to let players play together for any length of time.

But that's CDC for you.

I also disagree with the lines, but I doubt that AV will play Henrik with Bitz, would be absurd! If so, I'd prefer the Booth - Hodgson - Hansen line!

If he really want to split the Sedins, I would do:

Daniel - Kesler - Hodgson (or Hodgson - Kesler, whatever)

Booth - Henrik - Burrows

Raymond - Malhotra - Hansen

Bitz - Lapierre - Weise

This way we have Hodgson and Henrik as the passers, and a pretty good 1st and 2nd line.

I wouldn't do it though.

AV has done nothing but great things since he came here.

We won the League last year made it a game away from Lord Stanley with a badly battle wounded team.

He has a winning record as coach of Canucks get off his a$$ honestly the guys been doing a great job if you like his desicions or not hes the best coach we have had.

How about appreciate all he has done rather then rip him .. when we go 7-2-2 well playing horrible hockey.

In AV and MG I believe. :)
