I knew I was missing someone. My bad, I meant to put him with Kesler like you did.

I also wouldn't mind seeing:

Sedin Sedin Kassian
Raymond Kesler Hansen
Higgins Roy Burrows
Pinnizotto Lappy Weise


good choice~ :)

For those that suggest Kassian on the 1st line with the Sedins... I think its a little too late to experiment with this.
AV should have done this during the regular season (not just the first 6 games)
It's a bit risky to try this now when everygame is magnified and the intensity is much greater.
Kassian prob would need a few games to understand where he needs to go etc when playing with the Sedins

Damn AV...you are a fool.

I'm starting to wish we never let Aaron Rome walk, just so AV can keep his man crush on someone other than Ebbett.... <_<

Exactly. And it's not like any of us couldn't see this playing out like this. This should have been done months ago.

I see the fantabulous fan boys are still concentrating on Ebbett instead of providing solutions or proper analysis.

Ebbett played five minutes of ice time,was not on the ice for one goal against and had as many shots last night as Kesler,Higgins,Lappy and Henrik Sedin.

Ebbett makes 600k for his efforts despite your ignorance.

I agree that the Ebbett blame is overdone a fair bit. I think though that it is more the thought process of AV regarding messing with chemistry and his penchant for favoring guys like Ebbett over guys like Schroeder that is being questioned rather than Ebbett specifically and individually.

The fanboys are also after AV as well. ::D

As many have said, by replacing Ebett with Schroeder and putting JS on 3rd line with Raymond and Hansen and moving Lappy down to 4th we have 4 solid lines.

Yes Ebett plays 5 min but he plays a useless 5 min. Not only that but it results in putting Lappy in a role that can be better filled by JS.
Lappy would be great as a 4th line checker/crash and banger
JS has shown the ability to put up points with Raymond and Hansen.

It's all about getting your players playing up to their potential and the problem is, AV has set the lines where he has stunted the production.

That decision is made by the coaches and management,together.
The main roster is not AV's sole decision or discretion.
That was explained by Gillis a couple of years ago.
Gillis is total hands on everything.

Not a fan of the Kesler Roy line... I'd rather see Raymond-Kesler-Burrows
Higgins-Roy-Hansen

And replace AE with anyone

Pinnizotto-Gaunce(if JS is injured)-Lapierre(takes defensive face offs)

So

Sedins-Kassian
Raymond-Kesler-Burrows
Higgins-Roy-Hansen
Pinnizotto-Gaunce-Lapierre

Now that is a playoffs lineup


I agree, I don't like Roy and Kesler together. If it doesn't work for game 2, I wonder if the following lines might work well:

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
Raymond-Kesler-Hansen (speedy line, main duties are to check Thornton line + provide secondary scoring)
Higgins-Roy-Kassian (mainly for secondary scoring)
Weise-Lappy-??? (probably Ebbet)

The never ending problem here is that CDC thinks the entire pro coaching and mgmt staff have not gone over every scenario-and only CDC critics have the intelligence and experience to make and see what mgmt/coaches cannot see,cannot figure out,etc..
Every roster decision is calculated and decided upon with inside information these boards are not privy to.
That includes injuries,salaries,developing/appointing players with and without injuries,chemistry,showcasing-name a million scenarios we have no ideas about.
Flailing of hands and crying and screaming and whatever will never change the fact that we are not privy to what goes on for a million reasons.

CDC thinks that nor AV or the entire canucks management have ever thought of putting Schroeder in the lineup. Obviously AV has been coaching this core for what? Like 5 years so I would assume that he knows what he's doing alot better then any of us on this forum. They have gone through every scenerio we've even thought of and are going to think of as the series go on, they're professionals and although we may disagree with some of there decisions were sitting at home on the computer while they are managing a multi million dollar organization. There are countless issues with the team that can be debated and this is not one of them, maybe if we are out in the first round but not right now.

We need Faceoffs, Lain is a faceoff specialist who has been mentored by Malholtra and models himself after our injured specialist. Plus he's got size 6'6" and SPEED and can be swung in and out like Malholtra was. give the kid a shot or risk losing in the faceoff circle a lot more.

I always laugh when I see this kind of idiotic statement. They work for the Canucks therefore they are perfect, don't ever make mistakes, and are beyond anyone questioning their decision making? A weak argument for the pro AV guys with nothing left to defend but a sub .500 playoff record. But all that matters is winning regular season games in a weak division, right?

AV being here with the same players for so long is a big root of the problem actually. He has his favorites and plays them religiously even when they struggle rather than step outside those favorites to do what is best for the team in the playoffs. His stubbornness makes him react too late in a 7 game series. The really big changes will come in game 3 I bet if the Canucks lose the first two. Already too little, too late though like it is every other year with this coach.

If the Canucks flame out again they need to get rid of him, Bowness, and Brown and at least see what this group can do with a different style of coach and some assistants with some new ideas. Bowness looks like he has no clue what to do and Brown is too deer in the headlights to even go with what has been proven to work.

Seriously, these guys are beyond stale now. They are not terrible coaches, but they are stale for sure. They have nothing new to bring to the table to get over the hump that this team always hits in the playoffs and they cannot seem to motivate this team at all.

First of all don't remember that. Second they can't do any worse then ebbett and at least they are physical. And I honestly forgot about pinizotto and thought of him right after I clicked post, I just didn't bother to change it. Either way its fine as long as there is no ebbett

Let the coach do their things guys... they can coach a million times better then all you idiots who only watch the game from your television set. LIke be honest, do you really know how to coach team? You guys don't right? so let him do the job and stop whinning about what he does. He knows what he's doing. Look at his record. It speaks for itself.

Ebbett still on the 4th line....I just....there is nothing left to say.


With Roy on the 2nd line, just who do you think will center the 4th? Lappy moves up to take his place, not like Schroeder is gonna center the 4th, smarten up.. MG should of acquired a gritty 4th line center at the deadline, but he was too busy trying to satisfy the crying Vancouver fans and make a Luongo trade. :rolleyes:

I'm just tired of some of the so called hockey experts here that are on the "BASH AV BANDWAGON". He may be a problem but not our main concern right now. But what I meant when I said they work for the Canucks was that they have way more experience in coaching elite players then many of us do, plus they are up and close with the players each and every day and know there weaknesses and strengths more then us.

But this does not mean that I'm stating that AV is just flawless in what he does and Gillis has done a wonderful job so far lol. I understand that every single person on here has a right to question there hockey team but bashing AV for every little thing is just played out.
