Team played good and looked dominant most the night. The only thing I questioned was the none use of Garrison on the power play when his shot is getting to the net lately. Of any game this year coaching did not cause the team the lost, Niemi did.


2 shots on a 4 on 3 in overtime is not acceptable. That's not their goaltending stealing the game, that's the powerplay not getting it done.

AV saw Edler struggle to get shots through on 4 powerplays throughout the game, and yet he still kept him on the number 1 powerplay. Almost took out our best player with a shot too.

Coaching was not all to blame for the loss tonight, but it definitely held us back from winning.

Coaching has to change. Too many poor personnel decisions and a refusal to change what isn't working (Edler on PP) along with a propensity to dismantle what is (Hansen MayRay Higgins in the 3rd).

The reason it doesn't seem top matter who is in the lineup or why all new players who are successful elsewhere struggle here is because of AV. He's the coach. He's the one that puts them in positions to fail or succeed. His misuse of assets is becoming legendary.

This team is playing with zero urgency and lack of emotion. They need a shake up. A trade or a change of coach, or maybe both might do this team good. I've had just about enough of AV :mad:
