If I was part of management I'd be very interested in knowing what this 'fanbase' has been smoking.

respect the process; how often do you start a race at the finish line? gillis and co. (w/ some remnants of past canucks teams) have built a team that is ready to compete for the cup now and for several years to come. if it was that easy to win the cup, there would be a clear dynasty right now.

sure, AV has made some controversial decisions, but is there a better coach for the team? even if you think there should be a new voice, that new voice has to mesh w/ the (core) players as well.

also, even with the best players, there's a lot of variables that play into the game; that's what makes the stanley cup playoffs so intriguing.

2 wins in last 10 playoff games
Can't adjust in game and consistently outcoached
Raymond sighting in first or second line.
Team plays with no sense or urgency or toughness

If i was part of management, i'd be very interested in finding out what i've been smoking, because i just agreed to sign AV for 2 more years.

LOL you actually believe your sig? same guy who along with AV cost us the Stanley Cup?

LOL. You didn't take the time to look more closely at the thing you're cracking wise about? Seems like maybe you shouldn't be throwing stones, no?

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.

Aquilini is spending your money as we type.

Suggestion: Aquilini should hire some 'specialists' to hunt all you trolls down and drop you over the Lion's Gate Bridge. "Good riddance!" LOL. JK. (Not really)

But then we'd block the Fraser.


If they were dropped off the lions gate they would block the Burrard Inlet. This would be easier than trying to plug up the fraser as you don't have to fight the current.

I'm not a big supporter of AV...but someone needs to light a fire under his arse. I'm tired of watching him just stand behind the bench and chew a pack of gum a game. It seems like he just watches his team, he doesn't COACH his team. This team needs a mini shake-up, so AV better change his strategies.

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.


The reason that Canucks got the Pres Trophy this year is because NYR crapped out on their last game and Vancouver played Edmonton in theirs. Otherwise, the Rangers have been the better team all year and consistently at the top, especially in the new year. They also don't have superstars on their team, but have a crazy division (unlike Canucks), which they managed to win along with the East. 2010 Canucks ran away with it and were by far the best, no one was even close in points or achievements. This year was total luck and misfortune of other teams who still came in a point or 2 behind. Not the same thing.

But who do we replace them with?

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.

so winning 2 consecutive presidents trophies and making it to the cup finals is losing. the stanley cup is hard to win and gillis and AV have been building this team for sucess. you just sound stupid


The President's trophy wins, even though the record relied heavily this year of finishing the last 7 or 8 games/wins with W's against non playoff teams, was a tremendous accomplishment. It is also why all the more reason Canuck fans like myself think AV's 6 playoff series wins of only 6 in 6 years, with this team,is pathetic.

MG is still playing with Burke + Nonis' team. Where are these bold moves?

Of course he cares about winning because more farther the team goes in the playoffs the more $$ he makes so with your statement it says that the owners don't care about money plz use logic in your statment

So Anaheim, Buffalo, Calgary, Carolina, Chicago (2 straight 1st round losses), Colorado, Columbus, Dallas, Detroit (clearly regressing), Edmonton, Florida, Minnesota, Montreal, Nashville, the Islanders, Ottawa, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, San Jose, Tampa Bay, Toronto, Washington, and Winnipeg all need to overhaul their management? If the Rangers lose tonight, add them to the list? If "Stanley Cup or bust" is the mantra, almost every GM in the NHL should be fired every year. Whoever loses between the Kings and Devils if they meet in the Final should be fired as well, especially if it's the Kings. They have a longer drought than Vancouver, clearly don't care about winning. Fire them all. If Boston fails to win it all in 2013, add them to the list.

So I guess if he were a player, we would call him streaky? Or maybe with his 6 playoff series wins in 6 years , having gotten half or 3 series wins in one of the yrs, that he only coaches well in non contract years? lol

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.

So I guess that Babcock, Trotz, and Mcallen (sp) are all horrible coaches and they dont want to win either...*rolls eyes*. Everyone thinks its SOOO easy to win the cup. There is a reason why its the hardest trophy in professional sports to win. Heck the Boston Red Sox didnt win their World Series for 90 years...I guess they dont care about winning either. *shrugs*
