Tonite pissed me off kassian as the 5 th shooter....holy crap av cannot trust a young player if the game dependent on them......the guy is on fire and it was so obvious to use him first or 2nd but he goes with burrows, edler and sedin(seriously). Wat if we lost the game..... Thinking about all the good players tht came up from the moose was not AV it was Crawford....including burrows, kesler, beiksa, Hansen, edler and others. Again please fire AV

I'm an AV hater too but this isn't the right time, perhaps Zack should have sooner but that isn't the deciding factor in a firing, no reason to fire him now, we are building momentum, although I do think a different coach could be beneficial in some key areas, I do think we need a better reason and it needs to be better timed.

The fact that you said you were a fan of AV gives you enough cred to take your firing demand seriously.

Burrows and Edler have proven they've got shootout success so that's why they're there.

Certainly going to be our #1 defensemen. Give him a couple more years to improve his game and he'll be our new and improved version of Matthias Ohlund in no time

But putting Dank out there is a MASSIVE FAIL

I woke up my landlords when I saw him sent out there.

Dank is useless as teets on a board in the shootout and everyone seems to know it but AV. Maybe it was some half arsed attempt at getting his offence going but what a stupid time to play that card.

We could very easily have lost the game by that decision.

The Sedins are pool players, you don't give a pool player a dart and tell him his job is to hit a bulls eye. DUH

Didn't all those guys get their full time spot and move up the depth chart under AV?

Didn't AV put Kassian in the top 3 shooters against Edmonton and he didn't score?

The shoot out is a lottery.

Having said that I think we should stick with 4/5 guys and let them develop their technique. For all I know maybe that is what happens. Even the best miss and people who you might think would suck seem to enjoy the pressure.

I'm not a huge AV supporter, but it's not like he has a lot to work with in the shootout. Burrows has had some success, as has Edler, but after that, there really isn't anyone who is a proven threat to score. Hopefully Kassian can turn into a consistent threat.

I did like seeing Kassian out on the #1 PP unit following his goal; he earned a shot out there.

I've been saying this for years. Daniel has one of the most accurate wrist shots on the team. He should be using it instead of trying to deke. Somebody should sit him down and show him Linden footage from shootouts. That's what he should be doing.

LOL Kass didn't even get to shoot because Edmonton's shooters already won the shootout.

I'd like that too; I am thinking maybe AV thought it was a little too much pressure to put on the kid immediately. We do need to be better at shootouts this year, although the change in starting goalies will help with that.

Also, if you lose faith in your top guys, you're doomed. AV has to allow for the top guys to ignite a spark.
