I see so just so I can clearly understand you you are saying: AV (being the Head Coach of the Vancouver Canucks) is NOT the Coach of the Canuck's Goalies... please state this in you next post as I would love to put it in my sig for all to see that. If this is what you truly believe you have ZERO hockey knowledge and it would be great for everyone to see so that they may just skip over your ignorant posts from now until such time as you just stop posting your garbage.
What are you so upset about? Im here to discuss/debate, not trade insults. If you dont agree thats fine, but I dont get what compels you to treat so many of your fellow posters with disrespect.
As for the part you have bolded, I just dont see how AV should get credit (or blame) for good (or bad) goaltending. You know the adage "A good goalie can make a coach look really smart"? That refers to how goaltenders and head coach are interdependent to a large degree.
Ill give AV credit for goaltending when he starts working with them one on one, or goes over tape to address bad habits creeping into their game, or scouts goalies from other teams. In truth he defers to Melanson for all of that.
