Still blows my mind how that isn't roughing. Actually, no it doesn't. Refs call whatever they feel like whenever they feel like it.

guess having a league executives kid on your team gives you immunity

For sure. There is letting them play and there's punching a guy in the head eight times which is exactly what happened here. There is a clip in the Bruins Lightning series, that I can't find on Youtube, where a Bruin player commits massive interference on a Lightning player in the Lightning zone and there was no call. The Lightning player was absolutely laid out. Like laundry. My jaw dropped after seeing that.

the rags will undoubtably win a cup before we ever do. pretty much every team in the league will. the kings are proof of that.


How does this make any sense?

Rhetorical...it doesn't.

So we haven't won a cup therefore we won't win a cup?

That's really what you're going with? Really?

Both are great coaches but i think Torts can really rally the players and get them working come the playoffs.

Like him or hate him, there is no denying Torts is a great coach. He demands the best out of all his players and often gets the best out of them. He will not hesitate to call out or even tear the head off his superstars with egos (i.e. no favourtism, period).

Even Vinny Lecavailler, who was stripped of the 'C' by Torts and was considered to 'often clash' with him called him a good coach who runs a great bench and knows what's going on at all times on the ice and makes excellent strategic decisions, especially in the playoffs.

Quite frankly, the Canucks could have used a lot of that.

And personally I'd love nothing more than to see some of our own media get put in their place every once in a while by the bench boss.

While AV has piled up impressive regular season feats, I feel Torts is a coach who is much better suited for the playoffs than AV is.

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” (David Rockefeller)

I like how Torts coaches, and I like seeing his side shows when he gets mad but I wouldn't ever want to see that in a Canadian market, it would just become an amazing media circus then. I like AV more now than I did a few years ago as he has lightened up and become more likeable with the media and players.

You know that if Torts was our coach, it wouldn't be long before he and Botch would get into a scrap.....that alone could be worth it. :)

Are you kidding? Torts would be like throwing gasoline on a fire. We're already under the NHL microscope when it comes to calls by the refs, etc. so I don't know that he'd really help to offset that in any way. I like AV's ability to stay cool.

Yeah but sometimes AV is so cool it looks like he's falling asleep behind the bench. I think that is a reflection of why the team often appears to be coasting on the ice.
I just dont think AV is a very good motivater.

Question #4

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NWU7JJmFRw


Favorite coach - "AV and Mark Crawford...because they both had accountability in their system."

I also like the fact that AV treats his players like men.

Torts is good for an entertaining presser, and I loved his response to Joe Thornton, but he blows a head gasket too often and waters down his credibility in doing so.
