Are the Canucks a mediocre team with a good coach or vice versa?

I think AV is an alright coach who got lucky to have a good team now that they are not so strong they look like a bottom feeder. He should have been canned in 2010 thats when he was schooled by Joel Quenneville for the second time and it was there for all to see. I never liked his coaching style and decisions he seem to thinks its taboo to call a time out to settle things down. At the moment he has a grinder centering shooters and a playmaker centering goons. I think if they go into the playoffs with this buffoon at the helm they wont go far and its next year yet again. I know that there will be those who will mention the injuries so why don't he give Garrison, Schroeder, Booth and Kassian bigger roles and a chance to step up?

good team with injuries and a good coach. It's not the coaches fault the players are struggling.

he's a coach who makes the most out of what he has, until his methods wear out.

which happened early last year or late the year previous.

Bieksa and Kesler out. These guys are key.

But i don't think they were playing all that well recently with those guys in.

Kesler look great his first game back and i think that is the game he got hurt in..
Bieksa i am not convinced that not having him is the problem no one is playing up to par not just Defense.

Wrong forum section, please pay attention to where you are posting. This belongs in Canucks talk.

I'm locking this as there are many threads of a similar subject matter right now.
