Someone mentioned whether AV would be safe if this year's team did not go deep in CUP play? AV - Bowness - Brown are the main coaches. What does coaching tell Gillis they need for a CUP winning team? Internal politics is a reality in any org. To me it appears that Gillis and AV are the leaders as their positions suggest. I don't see enough of Gillman to get a feeling. We should remember that Gillis has spent a lot of money broadening Van's management team and AV's opinion might not carry as much weight as it might have 3 years ago.
In any event Gillis does have to judge whether current coaching has the capacity to carry this roster to a CUP win. The clock never stops ticking on the Twins longevity. Their era of being the go to guys up front might only have another 2 seasons left.
WHile it is very true, AV's continual refrain, "It's a process", comes off as irritating and somewhat an excuse. This comment is probably very unfair.
