Die Hard Canucks Fan

Coach Av Staying Silent

83 posts in this topic

The silents is exactly what should be expected...

Not sure why he has not talked yet. I can only speculate that the Canucks are waiting to see what happens with Lu.

Because a coaching change means you just start losing? A coach of the year nominee this year would be happy to talk to you.

The problem I see if that some people equate all the team's success to AV. While he's been gifted with the deepest team ever in the city, do people really think that other coaches couldn't have success when handed 2 art ross trophy winners, a selke winner, a deep defensive core, and 2 of the top goaltenders in the league? Nobody else could have success with that kind of roster? seriously?

How long is it until hockey starts again. Would be nice if there were meaningful discussion going on here.

I'm only a Vancouver fan, so yeah, hockey's over for me. :lol:

But, since when was there meaningful discussion here during the season? Are you on a different forum? <_<

I thought AV was on hols; maybe the reporters in Mexico or Hawaii or wherever aren't pestering him.

On hockey central yesturday they talked about how AV still has not broke his silence and that there might be something going on there. Every coach after the season ends is supose to meet the media and talk about the year they had. WHen MG did his year end presser, AV was not there and they said he will be available later on in the week. It is very unusual for a coach to stay silent like this. Maybe he just dosent wana answer questions about Luongo? Anyone know whats going on here?

It works both ways there buddy. Without AV would the players have turned into the players they became? From my view on this forum, the majority of people say we win in spite of AV so I'm not sure where you see that people equate all the team's success to AV. It's more the opposite on here where if we lose, it's his fault, if we win it's the team. If a player does good it's in spite of him but if a player does bad it's his fault for not developing. Even the year where we had Bulis on the second line, everyone says he won the Jack Adams because of Loungo. Vancouver has actually been the most critical of him despite his great record.

The success of players were helped by the coach, they did not learn everything on their own and play their own system. However, we may see a better team with him gone but that does not discount everything he did for the players here and the organization. It's all speculation but currently I recognize how great of a coach he was here but I believe it's time we move on to change up our system and strategies.

In the entire time here, when AV's star goaltenders only played average, we'd start losing and it was the goalies fault, but when they played awesome, AV was a coaching genius? If AV had got the team to win when the goalies were just mediocre, i'd say, wow, he coached the team well into compensating for the goalies play, but that wasn't the case. AV is a decent coach that lucked into a great situation here, and has been the only coach to have that advantage in Vancouver. He got outwitted by pretty much every coach he went up against when countering one another's strategy was needed. I'll take my chances with a new coach.

It's been stated in the media that Gillis has yet to meet with management and won't until next week. Gillis will not meet with AV until after that. Afterall, he may determine following a season review, or be instructed by ownership, to fire the coach/coaching staff.

The Canucks took a lot of heat when Nonis met with the press at the end of the seaosn, then was fired after.

I think what they are doing is appropriate, and not a conspiracy of any kind.

AV was spotted at the airport within the last week, so is probably taking some down time away from Canuck fans until he gets the call from Gillis.

Would AV actually have anything to say to Canuck fans that would satisfy them? Does this team owe the media anything? does this team owe anybody anything?

BEFORE the trade deadline was when we were winning AND played an exciting brand of hockey. AFTER the trade deadline, we were not winning as much, and played a disgustingly boring brand of hockey. MG made up his mind that we should play a trap style of hockey, for which ever reason, and it failed miserably. Our depth and talent was what got us so far last year, and this year, it was all gone: Torres, Ehrhoff, Hodgson. We brought in Pahlsson and Kassian, who were nothing short of useless in the post season. This should be blamed partly on AV too, who didn't even use Pahlsson as a shut down center, which is what he is, and did not give Kassian any valuable ice time. Daniel Sedin was injured too, eating more into our depth. Kesler dissapeared too. Booth was never a game changer either.

He was being outcoached all to hell in the first round and it took game 7 OT fluke giveaway to Burrows to get out of that round.

You are a masochist

Coaching change at this point can only make things worst.

Not only are we winning, we are doing it while playing a brand of hockey that is beautiful to watch.

I make a wish every night that AV gets sent packing. I want his press conference to be about that.
