You don't consistently make the playoffs with a coach who is as bad as the fans seem to think AV is. You don't win Presidents trophy twice in a row. You can bet the nucks wanted to go after chicago tonight, but they respect AV and he was obviously warning them that they need the 2 points.
Not a chance he is top 10, more like 25-30.

This guy is lucky he has a very good team that he can rely on to do all the work.

But on a team like the Islanders or Edmonton or Montreal or some of these younger teams that aren't very good and need good coaching, his issues would shine through.

No surprise he never had great NHL success before he came here, Luongo won him the Jack Adams, not a surprise that when Lu couldn't put this team on his back in 07/08 we missed the playoffs, then since 08/09 we have been good enough to make the playoffs every year without the goaltender stealing the majority of the games.

AV isn't the coach for this team. It's evident in our playoff collapses, we need someone who makes moves, makes changes, gets teams motivated, gets the intensity up and who can bring the best out of players.

AV's gotta go. Not the right coach if we want this team to win a cup.
