Watch Bowness somehow mess up Tampa Bay's already amazing 2 powerplay units...he'll probably tell Stamkos to do drop passes from centre ice, take him out from the faceoff dot, and place him infront of the goalie :lol:

I'm really going to miss him!
It's sad this had to happen, but I'm sure he'll do well wherever he ends up.

Saw that and posted it in the pinned thread. Very good coach, even great, but had some things he did that didn't work out here and appeared to have been tuned out to some degree, or his message wasn't being taken with enough emphasis to put it another way. Good luck to him wherever he goes.

I think this is what needed to be done to move forward but as a fan of this team it will be wrong not to thank AV for everything he has done for this club. So for that.. Thank you AV.... I wish you success where every the road takes you to dallas

Aw man, similar to what Luongo said at the end of the year media availability. It's going to be a weird off season seeing the coach with the most wins and the goalie with the most wins in this organization both leave.

Thanks for the good times AV.

He wants to remain an NHL coach? Of course he will. His time was up in Van, but a new beginning awaits. He isn't a Ron Wilson where he gets fired and can't find work.

He will get a job in Dallas or Tampa I think.


I think Tampa would be a great fit for him. Set up a defensive system since their defense is horrible

Just as I felt for Pat Quinn in '94, I felt for AV as well. To have been the head coach of a Vancouver Canuck Stanley Cup Championship team would've been glorious. Alas, it happened for neither........aroo........c'est la vie.

Guy is a class act. Sad it's always the coach that's the scapegoat, but such as it is in todays NHL.

Best of luck to you, AV. I'm confident that you'll land another job elsewhere and will achieve greatness with them.

If we hire Tippett, GMMG fired AV solely to save his sorry ass.

That's all. Best of luck in Dallas, Alain.

You'll go down in Canucks history as the Winning-est coach in this franchise and for good reason. Alain you've brought success here and, for that, the fans will never forget you. Not just for this generation but for any that follow. Thank you for providing the city of Vancouver, the Province of British Columbia and those Canuck fans around the world, the honor of what our team has accomplished under your supervision. I, and the rest of the Canuck fanbase, wish you the best of luck where ever your career takes you. Thank you and best of luck to you, sir.

Since our 1st year when we arrived together, AV would always tell me that he'd be gone before I would. I guess he was right. Very ironic....

I hope he wins a Cup one day.

Classy guy and goes out as our best coach of all time. Good luck to him in the future!

YOu are so right. I bet he goes to another team, has a team properly assembled in front of him and does very well.

He is a fantastic coach and a good person, even though I thought it was time to let him go after our first round exit versus the Kings. Coaches have a shelf life in their cities, and it just seemed like his was up here. He'll find another job in the NHL for sure.

He's a great coach and there are a few teams around the league that should probably be taking a really serious look at him right now.
