Shocking I know, but during the hot stove discussion tonight on potential coaching candidates in places like Montreal, the panel is discussing hot candidates when Ron just can't help himself stirring it up in Canuck nation when out of the blue he states that AV could be available if the Canucks don't have a long run, and that he'd personally like to see AV get another kick at the can in Montreal.

Maybe AV is on thin ice if we get eliminated in the first round, but that's not the point. I'm sorry, but how can you have your national broadcaster openly musing about having our teams' current coach go coach another team?

Your tax dollars hard at work. Just wow!

Don't think this one is off the handle by Mclean.... But i don't think AV is gone no matter what happens so w.e. That is Unless Fiddler somehow ends up on team and repeatedly does his 'mean face'

It's just Ron giving insight on the topic, and I wouldn't be surprised if AV was canned this year if we don't get past the 2nd round.

You're overreacting.

On my own I figured that Montreal would try to poach AV. He's everything they want. You're grasping at straws OP (but at the same time, frack Ron Maclean).

That would be dumb of Montreal. If I were them, I'd try to snatch up Guy Boucher. He is badass.

Just take it as a complement.

They're not getting AV anyways, so it doesn't really matter.

I guess that's my point really. It's almost as if he can't stand how good we have it so he's trying to sh!t disturb. It just pissed me off.

I use to think Mclean was witty,
Now I just think he is an idiot
Could care less about what He has to say

So, is he saying in a roundabout way, openly,that he wants Vancouver to be Eliminated early?

I would personally hand him his boarding pass and make him take off his shoes for the ol' preflight exam while he is bent over undoing the laces.

Analysts speculate about this kind of stuff all the time. Hardly something to get your knickers in a twist about....
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Exactly. MacLean basically said he'd like to see the Canucks fall short again resulting in AV's firing.

IMO the green men should accentuate their bulge so the opposing team is not only humiliated but intimidated.

Who cares!, It's what they do and guess what, if Canucks drop out early, he is likely done. ( just look at the way we have struggled for goals, hello power play and the indifference the team seams to display toward significant games to date.) Now all that can change with the 'flick of a switch' fingers crossed.
Don't get you knickers in a knot over CBC.

AV is under contract, so wouldn't we have to get compensated with a 3rd or 4th round pick or something?
(Yes I know he's not a player, but poaching a coach from another franchise usually results in some type of compensation.)

I really do hope Ron is the first victim of CBC budget cuts.

I noticed he said "I'd LOVE to see Alain Vigneau get another crack in Montreal" Does that mean he'd LOVE to see the Canucks not win the cup again? I think thats safe to say.
