What are your most hated coaching decisions in AV's tenure?

112 posts in this topic

Most recent, no timeout in the Edmonton game before he pulled Schneider. Riot act and let CS battle back...

When he chose to win the line match-up cup instead of the Stanley cup.

AV refuses to give this young guy a chance.

As he did with Burrows, Edler, Kesler, Hansen, Raymond....

Ruins every young player he gets his hands on.

Luongo proved twice in a row that he couldn't play well in Boston. It was like him in Chicago all over again.

A coach with any balls would have gone with Schneider in game 6, regardless of Lu's shutout. He was probably emotionally drained after that game 5 win.

But regardless, the team didn't step up at home in game 7 so that's ultimately what it came down to.

Chasing two Canucks' legends from the city, and ultimately the game; Linden and Naslund would both not play for AV, and drew the line in the sand, and lost. Disgusting.

1) management of ballard

2) not utilizing his timeouts correctly

3) leaving goalies in the net after everyone realizes he's having a bad game ( luongo in Detroit this season)

4) mis-managing prospects; not developing them properly

5) his choice of gum

The list goes on and on

Kassian had 5 goals in 7 games and was tied second in scoring in the league with Henrik and Daniel. AV logic takes action and puts him down to the 3rd/4th for some reason and he has struggled ever since. Now he is behind Ebbet, Sestito, and Pinozzoto, in a roster spot sitting in the AHL with scrubs.

The only think I really hate is the no time outs when we are getting rocked.

1) Leaving Luongo in for all 8 goals in Boston, essentially destroying his confidence

2) His management of Ballard

3) Taking Kassian off the Sedin line while he was producing

AV absolutely hates one way offensive players if they aren't the sedins because he would much rather give sedins all the offensive starts and have 3 lines play out of the defensive zone. Makes it kind of hard for any young players drafted for offense to showcase their offensive skill because they always start in the D zone and that's probably the worst aspect of their game which is sort of the case with schoeder but he's alright defensively. Hodgson was LUCKY to get any offensive starts and that was only to increase his trade value. Not many players are like kesler and start as shutdown centers and become 2 way centers, most are drafted for offense and learn their defensive game along the way but AV seems to think everyone should be selke calibre or else 4th line you go.

Probably not starting Cory in Game 4 or Game 6 against Boston.
