You have to be fair and look at the roster that is constructed here. AV is a winning coach and has a successful system (as we've seen in all his years of success in Vancouver). Some of the players here are here because of how well suited they were to Tort's style of play (Callahan, Girardi etc have thrived) whereas some players have shined brighter under AV (Richards, McD, Zucc, Kreider for example). I think pulling the plug on a coach 31 games into his tenure is a bit rash, there have been games where the team has played extremely well and there are times where the team hasn't shown up. I'm sure some players are still learning the system and there will be more bumps in the road, so have a little patience. The team does have a bit of trouble forming an identity but we are still only 1/3 the way into the tenure of a new coach. Give him some time with management to build a roster that plays to the strengths of how he wants to play hockey.
