I'm sure MG would have told him to pack his bags if he didn't try to change his philosophy a bit, but it still won't leave AV.
Honestly, holding the lead has led us to more victories than losses. Holding the lead is a great strategy. Offense requires more energy. Going all-out offensively every single game is tiring, and with our schedule, the coach needs to make sure the players aren't fatigued.
The end-game is simple: play a high percentage defensive game. That doesn't mean 100%, so we will get scored on from time to time.
There is a lot of concern that the 4th line has a lot of turnover. There were many injuries, however. Vigneault didn't shuffle the 4th line for the sake of shuffling.
Gillis follows the Detroit philosophy, which means every prospect will spend about 4 years in the minors developing. Don't expect Gaunce to come up for about two or three years.
