Wanting a trade in the coaching system has nothing to do with being a bandwagoner! Stop tossing this word out like it's someone else's salad.
You really think this team is managed well enough to win??? You don't think there's a problem with AV still?
If our team didn't have the injuries or suspensions, Schroeds would be on the Wolves or he'd be on the 4th line again... Ballard would be benched for lessor players.... PP would still suck.... Canucks would play defensively with a 1 or 2 goal lead.... There would still be no motivation... AV would still be mixing up the lines so no one has chemistry.... Kass would still be used as a grinder.... Sedins would still be getting abused.... None of the call ups would get a fair chance or they will be put in a position to fail.... AV would still be stubborn and not change his tactics... AV would still play favorites.... Schroeds, Hansen, Mayray would never see the light of day again.... Edler would still be getting mass minutes and a free ride..... etc.
Circumstances has given AV no other option, but to go against his personal wishes.... and you want to give him credit??? This isn't the first time it's happened either (Injuries forced AV to make the obvious choices and everyone praised him for these moves), but people like you think he's a genius??? If he would make these OBVIOUS adjustments with a healthy squad than we have a fighting chance in the Playoffs.... As soon as we get healthy again, watch the 'genius' revert back to being himself = counterproductive!!!
I find it hard to believe that there isn't a player on the Wolves that we can't call up to play in the bottom 6.... Ballard has been impressive, but we're better off with him on D.
Lets give the kids a taste of what it's like in the big league....maybe it will help motivate some of them?
That's not how it works lol AV doesn't call up players from the wolves it's the GM who makes that decision and then asks AV if he can fit that player somewhere in the lineup. And how can you base everything on the injuries, call-ups and so on. Can you prove that if we had no injuries and were healthy that we still wouldn't be winning? Probably can't and so I thought
