My brain read Gay V right there...


On topic though, I don't think he is experienced enough in coaching to jump straight into an NHL job. In fact, I'm not sure that he has ever coached before.

FFS stop laying all this on AV. Don't you realise this team hasn't had an upgrade out of Gillis in getting on for 3 years. What coach is going to do better in a situation like that?

Worse still is if Gillis and his scouts had been worth a damn in the draft, we would have had far more coming out of our system and might not even had to trade for big upgrades.

I reffed a game this year where he was coaching atom A, I think he's ready to take the next step and coach the canucks.

Gotta Love former hockey player turned analyst Garry Valk, but I don't think he has enough experience to coach in the NHL.

"What players need is the right kind of strength and power. That includes learning to understand that leverage and positioning can be just as important as raw strength when it comes to winning battles in the game. It's more about timing and athleticism --and avoiding injury--than it is about how much you can bench press. I don't know how many times I've seen a guy with the physique of a defensive end line up a guy half his size, only to bounce off when he connects. Sure, there is room in the game for big guys who can throw their weight around. But for the most part, players are smart enough to see them coming--and strong enough to protect the puck when they arrive. There are trainers out there who know how to devlop hockey-specific strength--though a trainer can help only if a player follows the program. All too often, I've seen players sign up with the best trainer, but not show up for their workouts and never to reap the benefits."

Bad idea. Valk has not preformed the actual function of coach on a profession team.

Well considering the fact that the Triple AAA Bantam Girls team I used to coach beat the Valk-coached NSWC team 8-1 and 5-0 I'm guessing maybe he isn't ready for the Big Show. Good idea though. B)

So what if he has no experience as a coach; GMMG had no experience as a GM and we all know that he is the most brilliant hockey mind of the century. He could be the next Dave Tippett.
