Wow. That's what I wanna see from our coach.

FFS is the 2C Ebbett experiment over yet? One flukey 3pt game does not make him a playmaking center. And Schroeder was sent down because he wasn't getting play time and confidence on the 4th line so you call him up and play him on the 4th line? COME ON!


Sedin – Sedin – Burrows
Raymond – Schroeder – Hansen
Higgins – Ebbett – Kassian
Pinizzotto – Lapierre – Weise

IDC who's on the correct wing, just do IT!

Canucks win 4-1
Kassian x3
Garrison

After Kassian nets 3 in the first. AV benches him for the rest of the game when he turns it over in the neutral zone
Garrison scores on the PP
Cory makes some key saves.

I beg your pardon? I've been a fan of this team for the last 10 years and I know that if this team continues to trend in the wrong direction changes will be made, starting with AV being on the chopping block

Btw why wait almost a year to make your first post?


If the Luongo trade debacle is any indication of how quickly Gillis gets things done, then yes, certainly AV will be fired tonight. That's what made me laugh.

Waited a year to make my first post because I wanted to make sure it was a good one. Either that, or it's been about that long since I've been on these boards last...

No kidding, instead of the typical "part of the process" spiel, along with "well we played a really great game, just need some ore puckluck and the goals will come".
Apparently not AV.. hope your bags are packed and ready to go..

At the very least, I want to ice a tough line-up.

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Raymond - Schroeder - Hansen
Higgins - Pinizzotto - Kassian
Sestito - Lapierre - Weise

Ebbet out.

I kind of see this game having some big emotions.

Kassian vs Stewart
Sestito vs Reaves
Jackman vs Weise

I still maintained we were turning the corner before the Wild game and our play at least for the first 40 against the Wild convinced me this is still the case.

So 3-2 Canucks in OT

No scorers, I'll be happy with anyone scoring.

Why does everyone think Lindy Ruff is the answer? It's not like he's won anything!

4-1 Blues

Can't solve an AHL goalie. We'll get a goal off of a lucky rebound, but that's pretty much it... I expect a lot of penalties for both teams and a few fights

We need to understand that it's not necessarily the coach that were trying to get an upgrade on. We're trying to make a change to fire up our team

this team twice trended in the wrong direction, and A.V remained our coach through those times.
end of the 2008 season. Missing playoffs. Wrong direction right?
midway through the 2009 season. ON pace to missing the playoffs, even one month after we got Sundin, the team still sucked, but A.V remains.

 

Well, I , I feel very good about this draft, but I, I think, potentially you know were gonna have 3 or 4 NHL players out of this group, ummmm, you know like we are not going to prejudice to were they are from.

3-1, Blues grind out the W in classic Hitchcockian fashion. Prove me wrong boys, Go Nucks!!!!!
AV, no answer for the Blues puck pressure.

then why Lindy Ruff??

We need to understand that it's not necessarily the coaching fault. The team needs to come together realize its them that needs to do better, not the coach. Also it's not a quick fix to always change the coach.

Tell me what do you suggest if we do find a new coach, but we lost 7 in a row? Then what? fire him again? then what? fire the gm? What if the replacement fails? then what? find another GM?

give Gillis the summer to change things. I'm sure he's going to change a lot of the supporting players this year.

Because Lindy Ruff is simply a change and a breath of fresh air. Our team is not going to magically wake up and one game turn things around. Something needs to happen. It's not AV's fault that we're losing, but he's the easiest one to replace. Either him or MG. Isn't that easier then say, trading a key piece and moving players around? We should just try something different, make the players realize that nobody's job is safe.

I'm optimistically hoping for a win.

In reality, the way we have been playing lately, we deserve to lose. I expect us to get spanked by Steen, Backes... maybe even shut us out. Hopefully we won't be singing the blues tomorrow.

Cant beleive Schroeder gets sent down. He had a good game yesterday on the 4th line. We should use this injury time to be developing our prospects. Schroeder Hansen Mayray has looked great in games this year. Not sure what is going on right now but the projected lineup looks like crap.

He's won more than AV. Just look at his resume.

So our fourth line is our second best line with Schroeder centering it, and he gets sent down? Makes sense.

There must be a trade coming at some point. Nobody can be this dumb right?

They're trying the same things that aren't working over and over again, and they're expecting different results. Insanity I guess?
