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.
