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.
He got a lot out of those Montreal teams that just weren't any good.
