Defends a lead at the worst times and every time and it always screws us over.
Our powerplay blows. (not his fault though, Newell Brown)
He plays favourites. Literally.
Ok. Flip side.
AV gives the ice time to players who don't deserve it or who aren't offensive threats.
Ask any Oiler fan how much our team needs grit and would cream pants for someone like Clowe. It's not just AV who favors grit, but unless you're out there creating legitimate offense, you can't be turning **** over and playing shinny. If you can't produce then you're bringing your lunch pail into work that day. That's how it's always been for almost every coach. And AV preaches it well and consistently.
I don't buy that AV doesn't give chances or plays favorites considering he benched Luongo and plays Kassian on the top line.
