He may beat Chicago because of teh talent on this team but he will never out-coach Quenneville or Bylsma or Babcock..all coaches who talk to, coach and motivate their players,


I agree with you. This probably could be in a different thread but I would have to say that Babcock is probably the best coach in the game today. That guy knows his stuff and the players respect him for it. His whole team (even the stars) buy into HIS system and that whats coaching is all about.

as much as I want to win and stomp the hawks, the realist in me predicts 5-2 Hawks tonight. I'd be happy to eat a ton of crow and be very wrong and no desire to be right at all. :P

AV doesn't talk to his players. He's proud of that. They're all professionals that do what they're supposed to without direction or guidance (i.e coaching).. Hell...he didn't even have the balls or decency to tell Cory he wasn't starting against the Avs or Chicago. Cory had to find out from the goalie coach.

He may beat Chicago because of teh talent on this team but he will never out-coach Quenneville or Bylsma or Babcock..all coaches who talk to, coach and motivate their players, .

I'm sure all the guys in the dressing room will really dig deep when it counts for AV.

Hopefully the boys can pull off a victory in spite of their coach.

Kinda what I was getting at, just in a more sarcastic / roundabout way. It frustrates me (you too, obviously) to have a silent coach who doesn't match his lines and just expects his guys to figure it out.

I used to support AV because of his record in Van. But ever since his whole "that Bieksa imitation was sooo funny" routine I've lost all respect. So you can laugh your ass off at some chirpy BS (which was actually pretty funny) but when the chips are down, no emotion, no interaction with your own players, no yelling at refs and "I'm so freakin' cool" press conferences.

He reminds me of the arrogant all-star kid in high school who just stops playing his ass off because he already got the scholarship and the hot girlfriend.

Or maybe, he prefers the "what goes on in the dressing room stays in the dressing room"...that he does talk to the players but it's none of your business what he talks about.

Did you guys ever think about it that way?

If Keith steps up and fights someone for his actions then I'm ok with that. He gave a dirty hit and the right thing to do is step up and fight. I would be pissed if he ran away all game hiding behind the refs. That to me is the sign of a scumbag.

If I sucker punched someones friend I would expect that I would have to step up and fight and not call the cops as soon as I get touched.

If your gonna do something dirty, at least re-establish some of your honor and face the consequences. I don't need him to be cheap-shotted or carried out on a stretcher or hit from behind. I just want the guy to man up like Lucic did when he ran Miller last year. He knew it was dirty and he fought who ever challenged him the next game.

If he talked to his players I don't think he'd come out in a bunch of interviews and say he doesn't talk to them in the locker room, it just makes him look stupid.

“Since the beginning of recorded history, which is defined by the invention of writing by the Sumerians around 6,000 years ago, historians have cataloged over 3700 supernatural beings, of which 2870 can be considered deities.

So next time someone tells me they believe in God, I’ll say “Oh which one? Zeus? Hades? Jupiter? Mars? Odin? Thor? Krishna? Vishnu? Ra?…” If they say “Just God. I only believe in the one God,”

I’ll point out that they are nearly as atheistic as me.I don’t believe in 2,870 gods, and they don’t believe in 2,869.”

LOLOLOLOL for fun I wanted to see who the big scorers on the Hawks are and how they have been winning games. They have won 5 games by only 1 goal and the teams they have been playing against are all below the Canucks. When a team is winning by only one goal VS the likes of the Blue Jackets, Coyotes and Kings and then losing to the Wild and barely squeaking a win out of Detroit. We will be the first 'good' team they have faced. I say 'good' in quotations because the Kings won the cup but are playing like crap, and we have had our share of sub par performances, but really a loss to the number 1 team in the NHL, a loss on our opening night virtually with no training camp, 2 Shutouts, 3 Shoot outs and a partridge in a pear tree. We could easily be much higher in standings then we sit, just like Chicago only has 2 wins (against crap teams) that weren't nail biters that could have easily gone the other way.

If we can stay out of the penalty box we will beat them. If we can't we will beat them up.

Dan O'halloran is the same ref as the one the night Daniel got hit and I think he was also present for the Bruins SCF series

What a ******* bonehead, I would say one of the most classless guys to ever lace up the skates to say something like that.





Daniel Sedin hasn’t got a text message from Duncan Keith and he shouldn’t waste any time waiting by his phone for that to change.
Keith says he has no plans to apologize for last year’s cheap shot, which left Daniel with a concussion.
“I don’t really want to get into the situation,” Keith said, when asked if he’d ever say sorry. “For me, it’s almost a year ago now and I’ve moved forward.
“I was glad to see him come back and play in the playoffs and I mean that.”
We’re going to guess Keith misspoke with what he said next.
“I think, for the most part, I’m a pretty honest player,” Keith said. “Obviously, I got suspended and I was punished for that, you know, so that’s something obviously, I’m very proud of.”
His body language suggested he left “not” out of that last sentence right before “very.” He was pulled away by a PR staffer so there wasn’t a chance to clarify that one.

We’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.
The Canucks were infuriated with the hit. Not only with Keith but with the reaction from the referee. For a vicious elbow that he drove through Daniel’s chin, Keith got a two-minute penalty.
The next day, Alain Vignault called out referee Dan O’Halloran without naming him.
“We got a big two-minute power play off that hit from the same referee — remember last year when Daniel got punched six times in the face in the Boston series?” Vigneault said. “I seem to remember it was the same guy.”
Yes, yes, we remember. And guess what? O’Halloran is officiating tonight’s game. Good times.
Does Keith expect to be targeted?
“I’m not really focused on what they’re going to do,” Keith said. “They have a good team. I think we have a good team, too. I think we’re focused on what we’re going to do out there and how we’re going to play.
“I’m not worried about anything else.”
