Sorry, I have an issue with that. While AV should take some of the blame for this year's early exit, he did coach the Canucks to game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals a year a go, and two consecutive President's Trophies. The issue that I have is that he can't put the skates on and when I see key players on the team not contributing anything, I find hard to blame the coach for not motivating his players to get up for the playoffs. I can see it during a long regular season, but if a NHL player can't motivate himself for the playoffs, it's not a coaching issue, but rather a question of character on the player(s).
