To me, AV was never an elite coach, at any level. IMO you should take that risk in the hopes that you might be picking up the next "generational" coach. By the time guys like that make the NHL, they very rarely become available again.

Cooper is also a BC-native, born in Prince George, so that's another plus... kind of... right?
If we have another lackluster exit this postseason I'm all for giving this guy a shot. Obviously right now there's no reason to panic though.
