After 4.5 years, the team needed a change.
They brought in AV to move the team in a new direction, more offensively oriented, without forgetting about the defensive side.
Canucks averaged 3.07 goals/game, fifth in the NHL.
Rangers were 19th, averaging 2.72 goals/game.
Rangers were second in the NHL with 2.48 goals allowed/game.
Canucks were third in the league at 2.52.
I find it interesting that the so called defensive system under Torts was barely better than the Canucks under AV, and this with Hank backstopping the Rangers.
I would guess that the twins affected those numbers.
