AV has an issue playing favourites and doesn't know how to coach certain types of players throughout the lineup. He takes a cookie cutter approach, and rather than coaching the talent he has he would rather stick to the traditional 2 scoring lines, third checking line, fourth grinding line.
Funny how Isbister, Richie, and Glass being AV's typical boys are no longer on the team considering he had enough influence to get Hodgson traded.
