I wonder if we had Hitchcock as a coach if he could bring the team forward in the playoffs the way AV hasn't yet.

Would we have a cup if Crow was still the coach?

Would we have a cup if the team had heart?

Can I really save money on my car insurance if I switch to Geico?

So this is how someone gets 30k posts, well thought out input.
KH is a good coach but he has a different style than AV, depends on how the guys would react to it.

I think his point was that it's really a rather pointless hypothetical question... Captain Obvious out!

Funny how many people said St Louis was stoopid for picking up Hitch.

Hitch is absolutely deadly. Other than Trotz in Nashville no one comes close. No mistake that he has been picked up as part of Team Canada for how many times now? St Louis was nothing without him and now look!

Is the series over already? Did I miss something. Do we not have a chance yet this year with the Pens out, the Sharks out, The Black Hawks on the brink, the Bruins on the brink.

Oh, you've given up?

I spend half my money on Wine, Women and Song.
The other half I waste!

Highly doubt it. Our team will be restricted from our current offensive structure. DAniel and Hank woudl have NEVER won the Art Ross under HItchcock, Kesler will have probably not score 40 goals, but highly doubt it. Luongo on the the other hand would have gotten 15 shut outs under 1 season with Hitch, thats for sure. Cause Philly and Columbus both failed under him, so who knows.

Players Nikolaj Ehlers have been compared too by the fan base of the Vancouver Canucks.

 

1 Pavel Bure

2 Markus Naslund

3 Nathan Mackkinon

4 Jonathan Drouin.

5 Jonathan Tavares

combine results.  Ehlers 5'11 162 lbs of solid rock.

Fail!

BAD MOVE!!!

BAD FING MOVE

HAHAHA ANOTHER INJURED MORON ON OUR TEAM

HE WILL JOIN US IN 2019

Benning will be fired next year. Hope he enjoys screwing around for a few months. I just cant believe this. Another injured BC player. We just got rid of garrison. Seems like the canucks and linden just wanted any BC born player. Doesn't matter if hes good or not. We don't need another Linden to get us to game 7 of the Stanley cup and lose. We need someone to win us a cup.

5 million a year for Vrbata? 6 million for Miller? Kesler for Bonino and 24th instead of 10th pick or one of their top prospects? Garrison for scraps?

ive already lost faith in JB. Ive never EVER had this bad of a feeling about management.

What are you talking about??? St. Louis is the number 2 seed, so there would be NO WAY that we play them until the Conference Finals! (If we can make it that far, that is!)

Who knows. Philadelphia didn't win a cup with him nor did Columbus. St. Louis looks much better but has yet to win a cup and honestly the Blues were a good situation to fall into and they fit what he is doing perfectly. He is a good coach but players have to execute and the Canucks haven't failed of late because of a bad system or lines even they just aren't executing.

If a butteryfly didn't land on that one flower in China, would we have won last year?
What if Alexander Edler used a different stick in the final game?
If the Canucks wore red jerseys would they have 3 consecutive stanley cups?

Shows how bad an operation Columbus really is.. He was able to get one playoff spot w/ them, but then it was all downhill... That operation is hopeless...

Yea, I wouldn't go as far as him getting anyone the cup, but at least he did get his Blues into the second round and in style with a solid 4-1 knockout. Which is a lot more that can be said for AV.
