If anyone should get fired it should be the GM, not that I am advocating drastic changes after a shortened season, I feel that that is foolish, but if it has to be one or the other it should not be Vigneault, he did a real good job.

He's not at risk of being fired for regular season work which was just fine, he's at risk because of his playoff record.

This year the only players he was really missing were Booth and Tanev, those shouldn't break a team given Corrado filled in for Tanev ably. We finally had centre depth that was healthy this year: Sedin-Kesler-Roy-Lapierre. AV needs to get more done during the playoffs, he's been out coached in far too many series. This one was no different.
