Willie has far more wins than Green in the month of November .

 

 

Watch Leipsic go on a tear now. Oh well... Good luck in Los Angeles Brendan 

Willie is coaching a Norris winner, a Selke winner, and a two time Vezina finalist. All of whom have won two Stanley Cups, along with a few other players remaining on the team. The Kings haven't had the same rash of injuries that the Canucks have either.

Willie has a team full of veteran Stanley Cup winners... including at least three allstars, (Doughty, Kopitar and Kovalchuk) and one gamebreaker, (Carter) two 30 goal scorers, (Tofoli and Brown) along with a veteran defense... and that team is barely holding its head above water.

 

LA is underperforming.

 

Green has a team which has been crippled by injuries... and which is nearly all untried.

 

Canucks were over-performing at the start with their lineup intact... now they are performing as expected with half the lineup either still out or recovering their form after injuries.

Time to create a highlight package of Leipsic's top 5 goals as a Canuck!

I'm sure it'll rival Ryan Shannon's.

Everyone thinks Willie was a bad coach Is all I'm getting at. You can defend Green until the cows come home. I don't mind Green but don't discredit Willie everyone bashed him when he had his line up dismantled. This wasn't a Green bashing moment it was a Willie praising moment, he's doing a decent job with a depleted line up.

He has Doughty, Martinez, Kopitar, Kovalchuck, Toffoli, Carter, and the rejuvenated Dustin Brown. Petersson has also been playing pretty well for them. Willie is not an NHL head coach.

Seems to be coaching in the NHL right now. Also everyone was told LA was old and slow and yet they have been beating young fast teams. It's funny how he's doing well and no one can acknowledge it because of their blind bias against him. If he was such a bad coach why did he get a second chance? Also all you keyboard warriors act like you could coach better than him, none of you have ever got a job in the NHL so before you say someone isn't an NHL coach put the Doritos and mountain dew down and ask how many games you've played or coached.

Those top guys (other than Brown) are underperforming; especially Martinez 9pts/27games, Toffoldi 12pts/27games, while top scorer is Kopitar with just 17pts/26games.  Looks like they have lost Kovy (14pt/25games) for +4weeks now. One can see why the team is struggling.  Their tenders are pulling most of the Ws for them.

 

Leips will get +++ toi with Willie at the helm.B)

If they get the game played in the corners, their ground and pound game intimidates teams as it showed itself in the last game we lost to them.    Lots of Nuckers were looking over their shoulders in that game.

Seems to be producing at the same rate in LA as in Vancouver this year.  Wonder if we'll see him back on waivers?
