AV has no clue. Ev3ery player Gillis gets him he plays else where. Given there are some injury's it still makes no sense to me. No one ever seems to get comfortable at their position. AV continues to fall back into his defensive coaching habits. I hope the Cancucks flop, which I have a feeling they will in the early going and they're fire AV!
I've been wondering what is AV's motive playing Roy on the wing, and playing Ebbett center who is gonna be useless as a mule tit come playoffs. His lineup is easy to play against you just shut down the first 2 lines and knock Ebbett around and he is rendered ineffective. Could he be doing this to get Lappy more ice time does he really think Ebbet is the better center option over Roy. The only thing I seen him do right was put Pinnizotto in the lineup!
Line up AV
LW C RW
Sedin Sedin Burrows or Kassian
Raymond or Ebbett Kesler Burrows or Kassian
Raymond or Ebbett Roy Hansen
Pinnizotto or Sesstito Lappierre Weise
I would prefer Kass and Kes together 2 big bodies who give the d-men headaches also Roy with Raymond and Hansen a deadly fast line maybe give Pinnizotto 3rd line minutes if Raymonds on the 2nd.
I hope for success but the reality of this club is they are not built for the play offs. Still not tough enough.
