      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Rumour] Av To Be Fired?!?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, during the news segment on a radio station in Regina they just said the Canucks are now looking to fire AV after the loss last night!

I call BS and am wondering if anyone else is hearing this in Vancouver? To me it seems like a horrible time to make such a move. Who would be the candidates to replace AV anyways? Ron Wilson? Ugh... I hope not!!!

Thoughts?

A slump is usually more like 5 games, 10 top, when your a top team...we've been in our slump for close de 20 now.  

It would be a bold move.  Backfire on NJ a couple year ago with Julien, but the Pens won the cup with Bylsma, however it's was January when they made the move I think.  Now it's too late for the new coach to get his system in place.

It didn't backfire on NJ when they fired their coach with less than 10 games left when they were at the top of the league. They went on to win the cup. Pitts fired Therien after going to the finals the year before, hired Bylzma, won the cup. AV should have been long ago, making a move at this point would take some serious cohones, I hope MG has them.

As a GM, I'm sure MG looks at all options throughout the year to see what he can do to improve his team, and I'm sure coaching is one of them. Now obviously that wasn't an option in the past, but I'm sure MG has as least entertained the thought of a coaching change over the past 2 months. Will it happened, probably not. There really isn't any better option available other than AV right now, so coaching stays, for now.

Baseless speculation at this point.

Therien was fired because he was butting heads with Crosby, and the team was going to miss the playoffs. We're 2nd in the conference, and the Sedins say they like the way AV coaches them. Totally incomparable.

I wish Gillis had the balls to fire AV last offseason, I would have loved to have Claude Noel as a coach.

Or if Chicago was stupid enough to fire ol' moustache Quenville

Not a chance he gets fired. There's just no viable replacement on the Market right now....

Obviously it is speculation at this point; and comparing this situation to the Penguins is not valid either.  However, just because the Sedin's like the way AV coaches them, that does not mean that he sticks around.  A coach can be like by all the players in the room; but if the results have not been paying off, or there seems to be a negative trend rearing its head, then it doesn't matter whether the coach is liked or disliked.

Just my opinion, but should the Canucks lose out in the first round, or bow out with a horrific performance in the second round, AV will probably have coached his last year.  Which is too bad because I like AV.

a change will most likely happen in the off-season if something happens in the post season. i really dont mind AV but if MG decides to pull the trigger i just hope its for the right reasons and he brings in an excellent replacement none really come to mind.
