Mike Keenan maybe? Toughen these guys up.




All the idiots come out of the woodwork..............please find another team to support. There are plenty to choose from, here's a tip, pick one of the teams with a coach that has won two PTs in a row and has some form in the SC playoffs..........oh wait.

Whether it's one game away from winning the Stanley Cup or it's a losing streak in 08 to miss the playoffs I haven't really been a fan of the coach. The thing is I'm always holding my breath... if we win playing a confusing or boring style it's great but if we don't then I really felt like I wasted my time and I'm emotionally dead. The fact that he influences pure offensive players wanting to go elsewhere makes it difficult for the team to win.

Sure you can win with grinders, playing 60 minutes and defense but every team does that. They need a competitive advantage which they don't really have. He puts himself in corners but is good at getting out of it which is why he's considered a great coach. But the team could be an undisputed powerhouse if they do the above and have pure offensive players to seal the deal. Instead we might as well flip a coin every game by trying to play it safe and only keeping players that are willing to grind but don't know how to score at will.

Listen bud, before you make any judgement calls on me remember one thing.. i've watched this team since early 2000 and i've watched AV since he was hired. My conclusion on AV is not based on two games but has been building up since the day he got here.

His unwillingness to show any emotion and call out players at the bench, his inability to call timely timeouts when the game's momentum is shifting, his attitude towards some players in playing favorites is sickening.

He continued that this series and last night. I just want him gone whether we win this series or SCF or not. We need a new voice back there. There are a million and one fans that feel the same way.

And don't call me a bandwagoner. Canucks are my only ride this year to the SC. If they're gone this round or later in the series, i'm gonna be depressed but i'll follow them til the end.

Thank you very much for your incorrect observations

Not sure about a million fan feeling the same way !!!
I've watched the Canucks since 1983 through bad, very bad, mediocre and the good seasons.
They are my team and the only one I cheer for.

Not sure where you got the idea I was making judgements on you and not sure where you read that I called you a bandwagoner !
Cheers

If the wings bow out maybe grab Babcock. If gillis was fired then replace him with Nicolson. Otherwise there is nobody else..

Larry Robinson (If Possible)
Adam Oates
Don Hay
Tim Hunter (Boy, the media scrums would be hilarious then)
Kevin McCarthy from Philly would be a good call. He's a former Canucks Captain. Was assistant coach with Carolina when they won the Stanley Cup. And is a current assistant with Philly. He was also the 6th best d-man in points in Canucks History, so maybe he can teach our defense a bit better.

There is options.

I don't think you're able to appreciate what's going on here. Being a homer is one thing, but we are going o make history if we lose the next game as the ONLY NHL team to win a presidents trophy and get swept. We are the first team to be in a 3-0 deficit after being the best regular season team. Status quo is not acceptable.

Are you CRAZY??? Trade Green for ONE first round pick?? He's restricted after this season.... He WILL get an offer sheet for 7-8 million from a number of teams regardless if he plays another minute for us or not. That offer sheet would be worth 4 first round draft choices.


Some fans overrate their players, and then there is this guy.

Craig Mactavish - Has passion which this team lacks
Scott Arniel?
Paul Maurice - I think he is a better coach than his record shows
Ted Nolan? hasn't coached much tho
Brent Sutter? Did a lot more with calgary than I expected him to
Not really A lot of options I like a lot...

I think A younger coach would be best late 30's early 40s. Craig Mactavish is older but I think he is very in tune with the current state of the league.

My favourite coaches are - Peter Laviolette - Joel Quenneville - Dan Bylsma - Mike Babcock
I think If AV is fired then Canucks need to hire a coach that has won it, either as a player or a coach.

Long shot - Bob Hartley. He coached Colorado to 4 division titles - 3 conference finals - 1 stanley cup. Has passion but hasn't coached in a while.

Or who knows, maybe canucks come back in this series and somehow find a way to win...

This is the third thread tonight where I've said Pat Quinn, should be our coach and or gm.

Oh yah, I'm also the guy who got massively flamed for suggesting that Schneider should tandem every other game with Luongo over 15 months ago.

My guesses = Craig MacTavish or Brent Sutter. Gillis played with Mac-T in Boston and he played against Sutter when Sutter was with the Islanders. I think Gillis would likely go with Mac-T given their history (plus they're the same age and they were drafted the same year in 78) and given that Mike was involved in the hiring of Mac-T for the Chicago Wolves.

Brent Sutter would be a good choice too. Sutter has a good coaching record and he was just stuck with a weak team in Calgary. Those Sutters were tough customers. Brent had the most success in the NHL of all the Sutter brothers.

I'd like either of the two as Coach of the Canucks if AV is let go.
