Both are average coaches at best.
MacT was slightly better than Arniel though. He could at least motivate our prospects.
We've gone from Carlyle, to AV, to Arniel, to MacT, and back to Arniel The quality of our farm team's coaches has gotten worse and worse unfortunately. If the Canucks owned their farm team, they wouldn't have that problem.
With respect DN that is not how I saw it. MacT was useless but lucky to have some of the motivation of old heads and remnants of the earlier Wolves. Their system for what it was .......was more or less established in the team. Players like Haydar, Mancari, Reinprecht (latterly) Baumgartner, Parent, Roussel and Duco understood how to play the AHL game.
You have to smother and play tight and physical in defence and attack. This present team are far too loose, lay off and puck watch far too much. They waste too many opportunities and they still fail to realise the importance of screening the opposition goalie, not that many of their shots are on target anyway. They come off second best in the one on ones irrespective of their size.
Lastly, it has to be said.........again. We overestimate the talent of our prospects. We should grab someone like an up and coming Mark Morrison and let him develop them on the lines of the Canucks systems.
