AV is The Bubblegum Man - can he chew it?

Still seen too small of a sample size of AV to be 100% sure
Have heard a lot of negatives of his tenure in Vancouver from players there
Some really nasty things but they really mean nothing right now
And fans --- well there is plenty to say both ways
We all know the real problem lies further up the food chain as in Sather and ultimately Dolan but...
Is AV the right man to coach this team?
Does he have the right mentality?
Does he match the right lines?
How is his in game coaching?
How is his defensive system (considering our D the last years) being utilized?
Does he give up in games too easily?
Is he tough enough`?
Does he love the game?
What is "AV hockey" in his book if he were to describe it in less than 50 letters?
Is his system a possible winner here in NYC (especially with this team)?
If not, can he or will he change it?
Or is he a "my way or the highway" kinda guy?
Did he hire the right assistants?
Did he have any input on the players brought in?
Does he want bring in some new players to patch things up or do something more drastic to the roster?
What are his real feelings about the Home grown, "veteran" cores play (Callahan, Staal, Girardi, Lundqvist) so far?
What about the mercenaries (Nash & Richards) that are both making top $ in the league but neither are playing close to superstar status - both are making over 100.000 per point in an 82 game season which is extremely high in the league btw - can his coaching and/or system bring out more from these two to make their high cap investment more feasible?
Can he tell us whar flavour is best to chew at least?

BTW - Hated Torts so this is no "Letīs bring back The Psychopath thread" in any way. Just wondering if AV is the right guy for NYC and this team. Got an uncomfortable feeling he is not...

Go at it!
