AV hasn't changed a thing, MG on the other had has.

If I do the math I don't get fire AV as an answer


AV is MG get out of jail free card as he inherited him. Although to be honest hes kept him for a while so really AV and MG should be getting blame for how we are playing, lack of scoring, lack of quality center depth etc.

This team is too good to barely be scoring, being in the worst PP slump ive ever seen from a team that use to light the lamp alll the time. I hope things change soon while we still have a good team

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.

Alright then be content with this.

And when we are eliminated in the 1st or 2nd round don't blame anyone, cause its easy to see that coming and you seem completely content with that if it happens.

i would be in favor of strict rules break them more then twice your banned:) i would probably be banned for dealing with the many useless twits but i could still come to read good debates and articles by fans


You and Tevor would have done well under Stalin.... ban those who disagree with you so you can come to CDC and share opinions and anlalysis with those who think the same. BY the way....name calling is usually a banable offence..."useless twits"?!!

If you don't want to make yoru arguments (again) don't come to this thread. If you can't stay away, participate in the discussion.

I figured I'll post this during a win streak so that nobody can accuse me of being a bandwagoner who "shuts up" until the Canucks are losing. Why? Because I'm right.

Let's set the first, and incredibly obvious thing straight right off the bat:

We've won 6 games in a row because of Schneider, and a few great plays by defensemen here and there (lolHamhuis)


Now we can take a look at how, apart from goaltending, absolutely nothing has changed since our losing streak. Good job AV, you somehow got Schneider playing like a 6x4 wall of bricks.


There's still no scoring (besides empty netters), there's still no powerplay, and there is still stupid line-up choices.

Schroeder still gets benched half way through a game even though that line carried our diminutive offense for several consecutive games. That is the last line that needs a shake-up right now!

Do I really have much else to add? No. It's all been said. All I'm adding this time is that AV is still doing a horrible job, and yet again his ass is being carried by a hot goaltender while AV's team sits on one-goal leads. This will NEVER win a Stanley Cup. Ever.

Fire AV.

Recently the only guy that ive noticed that has any sense in arguing for a firing is Vansicle, and he used to be very ardent.

Another user had it right for all the self defeating clowns, if you are soooo pissed at coaching. Be mad at MG. Pretty simple.

Other than that its all misinformation and whimsical musings that nary make any Hockey sense at all.

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.

That's the thing.

It isn't once in awhile. It has been for a long time. This team hasn't been able to win consistently since the Boston game last year unless the goaltending is spectacular.

Even earlier in the year, remember how everyone was saying Cory wasn't doing well. He was doing fine, its just that he wasn't carrying us, and we were being exposed because of it.

This team right now can't win unless the goaltending is spectacular. That is the reality of the situation.

. 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.

There is more required to JumpStart this team, not just AV...

We have some vital injuries and we really don't have a legitimate second or this line..

Reasond are slumping is due to pressure they get on during evry game.. Opposition knows this and they play extremely well when that line is on... When Kessler was back, for that short stretch, the twins were flourishing...

Even with kes back, were still missing a few key players and what we have on rooster will not cut it. Just look at the rooster the penguins are sporting... and now take all the key players from second and third line... Will they have as much succes as they do right now? Oh and look at all the line beefing they going through..

With all that being said, it will not be AV's fault for not making it past first round, and this thread should be added to the other million AV rants. And what about Gillis and his ability and his dealmaking???

Were going on two years since our special teams have been sucking and about the same time we haven't had legit second and third line
centers...


It's a big surprise were third in standings right now...

Ha ha another trolling fire AV thread. How original.......

Yes, Schnieder has stolen a few games for us but Luongo has done the same thing while he has been on this team numerous times. Furthermore, when Luongo was on top of his game no one blamed AV. Just clueless people making silly threads.

Thanks for another troll thread. :picard: :sick: :emot-parrot:

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.

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:

No he has been playing good enough to win the Vezina Trophy.

You can't expect that to continue.

Maybe Kesler will really improve us (I think he will add alot) but the problems will still be the same if things aren't corrected.
