While I don't think it was the sole or major reason why Koltsov decided to give up on a NHL career; I can't help but think that Smyl's ill-fated "training" as a coach for the Moose had something do with with Koltsov's decision.

Loved Smyl as a player for the Canucks; gave it all for the team his entire playing career. But as a coach? bleh (granted, even the great Gretzky didn't turn out to be a good coach - so he's got company there).

I believe Randy Carlyle was coach when Koltsov left.

True, but I was more referring to his 1st year in the AHL when Smyl was the coach.

From what I recall, Koltsov felt he was entitled to a spot on the Canucks' roster and was upset that he had to pay his dues in the AHL first.

I recall it a little differently, actually - I seem to remember him initially leaving due to his mother's health. I think people thought it was a short-term thing at first, but we all know how that played out.

Koltsov looks good in the UFA vs Davos game since I've been watching.

If I'm not mistaken, it's actually somewhat remarkable that he has even managed to play pro hockey after that. They initially didn't think he'd regain proper use of his hand.

The guy who does the color commentary makes me want to punch stuff. Now I know what Jason Botchford would sound like if he was a color commentator.

He's American, so I don't think it's too big of a deal.

How has Schneider been playing? I haven't been able to watch the games. A bit worrisome if he isn't able rise to another level during a tournament.

haha. calm down. I'm in love with schneider.

I saw someone say he played baaaad in the spengler cup main thread so I was just wondering how he played. I know he killed it in the playoffs for us. in the game he played before this one he had like 15 saves and gave up a few goals.

Also, it's luongo321, not luongo123.

Any goalie can look bad with these terrible teams in front of them. Garbage teams, garbage coaches with garbage systems, garbage refs, and garbage announcers. Painful to watch but slightly better muted.

Schneider didn't play the best, but if that was a Canucks team in front of him some of those goals may not have even developed.

Didn't watch the game but just took a look at the rosters, there is a substantial difference in quality.

Team Canada has Matt Duchene, John Tavares, Tyler Seguin, Jason Spezza, Patrice Bergeron, Sam Gagner, Ryan Smyth, Cam Barker, Jason Demers, and other lesser names.

Compared to Fribourg; Patric Hornqvist, Maxime Talbot, David Desharnais, Bruno Gervais, and Cory Schneider.

Just look at the disparity in talent level, no wonder Schneider was lit up.
