I don't want AV fired.

I want him thanked for his quality service as we proceed in a new direction and wish him well in his future endevors.

That's the thing... if it was once in a while it would be fine, but, every time our goalies don't stand on their head we seem to lose... see what we're saying?

Our players need to get used to winning now without relying on the goalie otherwise that trend is going to carry into the playoffs and Cory can't steal 16 games...

The thing that is pissing me off the most about AV is his defend the lead crap, never works.

They need to keep fore checking and keeping up the pressure, we have an elite goalie to bail the team out if there's any mistakes or odd man rushes, no need to rely on him for the rest of the game everytime we score a goal.

I was surprised in the Colorado game; the usual 20 minute "sit back" method was doubled to 40 minutes. Pretty soon we're not going to get the puck past center ice. This team's mentally needs to change from "don't screw up" to "Keep it up", look no farther than the Blackhawks for the reasoning.

I dont like how AV is not holding all players accountable in the same manner. He rips Ballard all of the time and throws him in the pressbox after making 1 or 2 mistakes. Bieksa (i know he has a bit of a nagging groin injury right now) and Edler are so damn inconsistent and look like boneheads out there a lot of the time. If their jerseys said Ballard on the back, they'd be in the pressbox. This type of special treatment needs to end.

I really hope Babcock is available at the end of the season. I hope Boucher will still be available at the end of the season as well.

I also don't like how quick he was to send Schroeder down to the 4th line and then down to the minors a few weeks ago. That schroeder line with hansen/raymond was playing pretty well. When our team started playing really poorly a few weeks ago and with AV's job on the line, he finally decided to put schroeder in a place where he could succeed. Now that the team is on a winning streak again, AV feels the leash loosen and sends Schroeder back to the 4th line in the last game. I don't think he had a strong game last game, but it's typical AV. :lol:

Yeah, demoting Schroeder was a great move when he's been in on the game winning point 3 games in a row and his line was the only threat.

cory has been playing good enough to be the clear number one for a short period and thats it nothing magical, doing his job have you guys ever considered injuries to be an attribution to lack of play infront of the net.

. Farhan twittered after last night's game. " the most complimentary score in the history of man" (or very close to that). It shows, he actually watched the game and noticed how brutal the Nucks were (are).

Some here just live for the "W" and nothing else matters

WE just played a game where the worst team in the league dominated us for 40 minutes and yet after the game the PG thread is full of "yahooo. we're on a roll"!! What a joke.

Yeah I know.

I can't wait to see them complain when we get eliminated, then we can say "I told you so"

Meh, AV's done pretty well with a forward group that's half AHLers.

Just need to get rid of our PP coach...

Last 6 games: GAA 1.00

Previous 28: GAA 3.07

This is a replay of what was going on the second half of last year. This team won most of their games because they relied entirely on outstanding goaltending, which is not enough.

This underperforming has been going on for so long I think for the good of the team AV should have been replaced already. The goalies have been bailing him out imo.

Weird,when you consider that you complain when the team wins.

I disagree with your opinion, it's not AV who has bad coaching. It's the players who are not playing well.

I think either one of Gills or AV has to go, they don't seem to mesh well together imo.

AV needs to change it up a little and implement a more offensive strategy when we're healthy or Gillis needs to go and a new gm needs to get all defensive players so AV can do what he's good at and sit on a lead.

He's complaining about the coaching style and the manner the team plays (sit on leads, rely on goaltending, bad powerplay) I have yet to see him complain about the box score.

Teams still winning no complaints are coming out of the lockerroom he obviously still has these guys attention. He's doing good for the pieces he has to play with. In my opinion he is doing his job better then gillis is doing his

I agree with you for the most part, Really things haven't changed aside from Cory and that Shutdown pair (Hammer-Garrison) being great.

The issues for the most part are still the same and AV made another boneheaded decision benching JS last night.
