Yeah dude our two wins without our goalies stealing the game for us is real awesome, we should talk about that some more.

so what your saying the goalie did his job?? Seems like the staff have him on their side.. Even with this drama him and luongo are friendly

It boggles your mind that Canucks' management thinks AV should be the team's coach?

Please tell us all how your hockey pedigree trumps theirs. (BTW: NHL 2013 doesn't count)


Well..."any monkey" could have coached the team during any playoff run. Right?

Right.

Joe I give you a +1 for the timing. Great on you for not waiting till things turn south.

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.

I think this all just shows how this fan base gets far too high when things are good and far too low when things are bad.

And while I still maintain that AV won't win a coaching battle in the postseason, and that he will get outcoached.

We can't fire him now. I think the opportunity for that has closed, its far too close to the playoffs to change things and implement a new system. With 20-30 games left, sure, but right before the deadline with about 10-15 games left, I think we are better going with what we have.

How little I know? Stop looking at stats and scoresheets, guys! The play on ice is still a complete joke. Yeah, we have injuries. Why are we winning? Could it have something to do with 4 of those wins being against the bottom teams in the west? What about Schneider the brick wall?

Have none of you seen that the hockey this team is putting on the ice is exactly the same as it was during are losing streak (6 losses in 7 games, broken by one win, whoopie)?

If our goalie weren't standing on his head these last 6 games, they would have all been losses. The Canucks were severely outplayed in every one of these games except for the last Columbus game.


You guys are all just high and mighty because we've won 6 games. None of you are paying any attention to the games. None of you are seeing just how poorly this team is being coached. We are so lucky we have Schneider playing the way he is.

If you think AV's doing a good job because of the broken line-up, think again. Thank Schneider, not AV.

Ebbett has been terrible.
Sestito has been expectedly useless.
Gordon has been decent, but he was also the Wolves' best player. We should hope he isn't a complete liability.
Schroeder has been the best "call-up", and he keeps getting benched.
The Sedins only have looked good when playing with Burrows, yet he constantly splits them up.

Yea, our line-up is broken, but look at who is out:
Kassian - was on the downtime of his inconsistency.
Booth - uselss
Kesler - the 7 games he played were nothing short of disappointing anyways.
Wiese - 'nuff said
Malhotra - management's treatment of him has had worse effects to the team than the fact that he isn't playing has...


Don't act like I'm the stupid one because I want a bad coach out of here. You can sunbathe in our team's undeserved win streak while you all sit in your circles, making daisy chains, and singing your praises to a coach when the rightful recipient of said praises is Cory Schneider.

You act like I have nothing to add to the discussion. That's not entirely true. Maybe if you read some of my posts rather than the topic title, you'll find my content.

You guys, on the other hand, have nothing to say besides:

"you're dumb"
"typical Joe Schmo"
"AV bashers"
"stupid"
"#winning"

Watch some damned hockey.

The points as to why we disagree with you and Joe have been made over and over in thread after thread. You and your ilk just ignore them and trot out your save tired old rhetoric.

At this point, sarcasm is all you deserve.

Quit whining.

The team adjusts because of injuries and are winning.

My god.

Its like you want them to lose.

AV detractors:


.... :sadno: .....

Do you really think playing this way is going to get us a cup?

You are far too content with just barely scrapping out wins due to our goaltending.

In otherwords the same thing that happened last year down the stretch. I hope our playoffs go better than last year.

You failed to at least provide a logical replacement that would improve the situation. As far as I'm concerned AV is not perfect but doing an acceptable job. For now. Not just going to boot a guy that has cup run experience with us now out of the blue it will take more.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

AV has had 2 elite forwards who have won scoring titles, a selke nominee several times and a winner in Kesler, always had pretty good defense and arguable one of the most consistant league best goalies in Luongo for the past number of years.

And 1 good run is all their is to show for it? Ya I think the coach has underperformed here. With this team we shouldnt be judge on regular season success it all boils down the what we achieve come post season

Agreed.

Bedbeats is a clown, know's he's wrong so all he can post is gifs.

The team is winning because of our goalies... how dense can someone be?

Take out Lu and Schneider and put in an average goalie and we have maybe 2 wins........pathetic...

This team should be able to coast in the playoffs with the division we're in.

I understand we have some injuries but even when we were almost healthy we played the exact same.

Are you expecting them to turn the switch on like last year in the playoffs? :lol:

Hopefully this thread is saved for the playoffs when AV gets outcoached once again.

And Tiger Singh, that was not AV's tactics.... Sedins are known to draw up their own plays.....

Yes I want to see AV fired, but it has gone to far into the season now to do it and have a new coach come in and implement his own system before the playoffs. Therefore AV gets this years playoffs and if they don't go all the way he should be shown the door.

Wanting AV fired when we're on a win streak is stupid because we're winning.

Wanting AV fired when we're on a losing streak is stupid because we're bandwagoners.

It's about time to give people who own this platform no respect when it comes to this debate. I'd advise my fellow CDCers who want AV gone to ignore them, and focus on people who do not own the above platform. You will just give yourself an ulcer if you don't.

I don't like AV's style of coaching. I don't like the fact that he doesn't talk to his young players on the bench during the game. I don't like how he has handled Keith Ballard (though I do like that he gave him a shot at forward).

Even if I don't like AV's style of coaching, that does not mean that he can't be a successful coach. There are many ways that a team can be successful. I don't really care which way this is as long as we get results, which is the case right now. I'd rather have a coach who coaches a style I don't like but gets results than to have a coach whose style I do like but who can't take this team anywhere.

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

Down by the River - Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.

Nah. Ive already, AD NAUSEUM gone thru all of this.

Thankfully theres a mega buttload of statistical data...and general facts to go by.

You all grasp for straws and it is comical.

You deserve the silly.

Kinda funny you getting all butthurt over it.

Until then, or before this thread is locked, ill enjoy the team winning. And you can carry on whining about your imagined biases and wholly superfluous bashing. In fact as i enjoy the winning go forth and look for another team. Obviously you find it hard to enjoy yourself when the evil AV is behind the bench.

Don't be critisizing the coach because our players aren't scoring lol
