Do you just don’t like him Alf, be honest cause everything points to him being a good coach so far

Green has a losing record with us.  He’s 9 games under .500 and that’s getting worse.  I think his systems are Junior level, and his philosophy is passive.  In no way does he exude leadership.  IMO he’s way too soft with veteran support/role players.

I know I know but if he was as bad as you say he is he would have been gone before he even started. Any coach would have been below .500 the first 2 season. Team was awful, defence was one of the worst in the league. That’s pretty tough for anyone

Then if the team is weaker play a trapping system, and limit shots.  Slow the game down to a crawl.  Green is coaching a system where he’s experienced ting to trade chances.  It’s a junior system.

Shouldn’t be in the NHL If it’s a junior system then. Crazy all the experts and management haven’t figured this out yet. Big trouble if he’s a junior coach in the NHL

He was cheap, as was Willie D.  Both guys were pretending to be confident NHL coaches.  As soon as things got ramped up, they melted away.

They’ve never cheaped out on coaches before, why the last few years?

Ran out of money paying Torts?  

A coach who was getting chatter about COTY and almost made the AS game and first in the Pacific until major injuries hit us again, and suddenly he's a junior coach? 

 

I miss the old positive Alf who doesn't have his head up...

The main reason we didn't keep Baertschi up was because there was no room for him on PP2.

 

We've been playing Roussel on PP2 for almost the whole season now it seems for some reason.. maybe it's time to bring Baertschi back.

I’m with you on that one! I wonder if Green even wants him in the lineup though. Maybe Baers agent ticked JB off too, who knows. Just doesn’t seem like Baer will ever get a shot on this team again

Who’s knows. Maybe Greens been a temp this whole time haha. I know it doesn’t mean much but I’ll continue to support him while he’s behind the bench. We will just see what happens over the next year. He’ll be back next year if they make the playoffs. We’ll see what happens Alf. In the meantime we should be cheering our team on instead of expecting or wishing for a change behind the bench.

I could see a rebuilding team like LA take him off our hands for a possible draft pick. 
I think Sven’s chances of rejoining the Canucks are worse this fall than last fall. 
Nice guy from what I can see, but he doesn’t fit on an elite NHL team.

Canucks tried to move Baertschi instead of Schaller's expiring contract in the Toffoli deal but LA wasn't interested.
