While I'll admit Kesler is an addition to the powerplay, for the past seasons dating EXACTLY after January 7th, 2012 we have absolutely looked uninspired. That's on the coach to try new ideas. And in fact he seemed to veto some ideas to change it up

He has a habit of not trusting young players and over-trusting veterans that seem to be struggling to the point of management telling AV to NOT play Bieksa more than 25 minutes a game, which AV promptly told them to stuff it (politely)

All in all, AV is a good coach with his faults (like any coach) and a message being tuned out despite how much the players said they weren't. It was a due change.
