I have never seen Hamhuis blow his tires multiple times like he has. I have never seen Alex Edler play so pathetic and worthless in his entire time. Last night in the 3rd with less than 3 to play he finally laid out a big hit... well what good does it do at that point?
The Kings also caught a Canucks team looking to the Finals instead of looking what was right at them.
No you are wrong. AV is completely the problem, has been for 3 years. The team has won inspite of him, not because of him. What's further, they will be back next year with a vengence.
You mean the philosophy we are getting beat with right now.
AV is gone after this season, it sucks, the Canucks under Vigneault has been their best stretch in their entire history.
I love when people write things like "we win inspite of him" its such a crock or crap.
It is purely a personnel issue and this has nothing to do with Cody Hodgson...sick of that crap too, yeah our Selke, Hart and shutdown center can't handle Brown and Kopitar in our end, but little Cody Hodgson would have changed everything....right.
The Canucks lack true elite finishing ability. that is their main problem. I cannot recall one single save that Quick has made so far in this series that 'wowed' me and had me thinking he saved a sure goal.
All that said, you have to win 4 to win a series, it isn't over yet. But I will say, I cannot see another coach taking this exact roster any further than AV took us last year.
THe 'whistle to whistle' philosophy does not work in the NHL, that mantra came from the top of the organization...you can't tell me a blue collar coach like AV doesn't want to see Kassian or anyone else do what Carkner or Neil are doing in the Rangers series.
