AV should be on thin ice...

39 posts in this topic

That "same-old same-old" coach got us to game seven of the Stanley Cup Finals and helped make this team into a contender. Have no idea why people think teams can just change a coach and nothing will go wrong. AV is a great coach and he tends to be the whipping boy when no one else is performing poorly, the off-season is happening, etc. You're just complaining to complain. You didn't bring up a single good point that was backed up by an example. All in all, this is a pretty poorly constructed argument and I consider that if you truly want to express your opinions about the man like this, take some more time and effort into your posts.

At first I thought he was a total badasz for being so chill and jus chewin his trident. Now, I dunno, he just seems stubborn.

AV is an elite coach. He knows the game inside and out. He may not rank as some of the players all time favorite coach going back to pee wee, but players respect him big time.

He's not adaptable. See the Chicago series we barely squeaked through and the Kings series. You can argue he took us to the Stanley Cup finals and game 7 but it's hardly a sound argument because our lineup on paper was arguably the best in the NHL regardless of the coach.

I like the guy, but sometimes (emphasis on SOMETIMES, understanding his motivation for switching players can be rational but makes no difference so often) his line-juggling techniques (see sig, don't take it too seriously) leave everyone scratching their head.

AV is obviously a good coach but I would like to see him make some minor changes to his gameplan. That being said, I don't think his job will be on thin ice unless we see real struggles (basically the go to reason for why any coach would be on thin ice).

Some other team would pick him up immediately if we got rid of him.

He's a good coach and his Jack Adams and two nominations would definitely support that.
