AV has had lots of talent play for him, defensive specialists, MVP, Top scorer in the league. Second in MVP, 40+ goal scorers, yet only once he has gotten the team out of the second round.

The worst of it is that teams that have eliminated the Canucks have gone on to win it. Especially this year's LA. That was a HORRIBLE series.

The guy is a LOSER. He has good players, that's why regular season haven't been a problem for this team. With that many talent on 1 team, a donkey behind a bench would have led the team to the same success.

Gillis showed fans that all they care about is mediocrity. In the playoffs, that's how the canucks, mediocre. No team in the league fears Canucks. They think it's the canucks, let's just rough up the sedins, and they fold like laundry clothes.

I along with most fans have been baffled by AV's extension. Why not put fire under his ass and tell him to deserve his extension, instead of giving out free money.

I predict many more first / second round exits in the future. We peaked last year, it was the perfect time and opportunity to make changes, yet the canucks failed again.

Good job Gillis and Aquillini's, you clearly show to us fans that you want a winning product.

AV's playoff coaching success:
1st year - Loss in second round
2nd year - No playoffs
3rd year - loss in second round (had to come down from 3-1 to win the 1st round then blow it against the 'Hawks
4th year - collapse against the hawks again after dominating first round 4 - 0
5th year - almost collapsed in the first round (1 goal away from making history) then completely get blown out on the road against the Bruins and loss game 7 on home ice
6th year - 1st round loss.

2 wins in the last 10 playoff games.

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

2 words: Who cares?

that's like saying, i won 3rd place, now give me a cookie.

remember: 2 is not a winner and 3 nobody remembers.

The point of the NHL season is to win in the PLAYOFFS and not in the regular season. How many times Canucks have won in the playoffs. That's right 0.

Lol at 'only once past the 2nd round!!!' Hey, you can count though, so good for you.

So very good teams are required to beat ours. That is HORRIBLE! lol fyi LA swept the Blues and took out Phoenix in 5.

He has good players, yup. Players who he has coached for the bulk of their careers. Is it possible that his coaching helped them become good? Nah. The back-to-back president's winning coach is a loser.

Mediocrity: See Calgary Flames.

Wait a minute, i thought we had good players. Now the Sedins fold like clothes? Now it's your arguments that is folding over. Man this is starting to suck for you.

I'm baffled why you think this nonsense is thread-worthy, troll. We peaked? We'll never win? Blah-blah-blah. And yet you call AV the loser?

I predict that this team... Or anyone else... Will ever need you. Good-bye.

Your post: Speculation and false hope.

I can definitely tell why Canuck fans are the most hated in all of NHL.

And last i check consistently failing in the playoffs makes the team mediocre. Not a winner.

Which other team has consistently won the cup or have gotten to the finals? There's only one and that is Detroit.

Based on your logic, 29 teams are also failures.

Who do you suggest we hire?

If you want to talk about recent resumes, look no further than Mike Babcock

Why? At this point it's hilarious. We ought to start a pool. We could break it down into subcategory:
AV topics:
-outcoached
-never win the cup
-best coach evar
-gum
-mancrush
Lou topics:
-contract
-no one will take his contract
-best goal tender evar
Raymond topics:
-fall down
-bag of pucks
-useless

. . . etc

It actually gets to the point, like some jokes, where it starts off funny, gets old, and then returns full circle to funny again.

Our team isn't that stacked compared to teams like Pittsburgh and Detroit, and we still got the Presidents trophy, while they got like 4th in their conferences and got kicked a$$ in the 1st round. Your explanation tells me that Mike Babcock and Dan Bylsma are worse than the "loser" Alain Vigneault.

Poeple have to stop thinking that if you dont win a Cup that it is a failure. We are the Vancouver Canucks not team Canada. Success is having a competetive team that makes the playoffs most seasons and gives its fans a chance to see thier team in the finals. If that isnt good enough for you then I suggest waiting to see which team wins the cup each year and say that they were your favorite team. Then you would never be let down or dissapointed and always cheer for the best team. By your logic there is only one successful team every year. The fact that people think that not winning the cup is a failure means that we must have been spoiled with great teams. You think fans in Edmonton and Calgary are saying that if thier teams don't win the cup its a failure? Those fans would be happier than pigs in crap to have a team as good as ours.
