I do wonder how much of the Wild and Vancouver's success was built on the weaker division the last couple years. We saw the discrepancy in the Wild's win percentage vs playoff and non-playoff teams. Vancouver had pretty much no real competition in the last five years. I do think their team was excellent a few years ago but they've gotten older and haven't had young players come in to add energy and skill, just fill out the bottom lines.

I think AV would be an upgrade over Yeo. Vancouver had good special teams and were solid on both ends of the ice under his tenure. He seems to be more of a coach and less of a peer like Yeo.
