He was horribly underqualified and had a previous affiliation/connection to the Avs...so perfect Avs coaching candidate.

The team is awesome in the shootout, which is why he still has a job.

I'm honestly considering just stopping watching Avs games until Sacco is fired.

I vote to fold the franchise. Then I can find a new team to cheer for.

Can't wait to break the losing skid though tomorrow. I will be at the game and shining a laser pointer into Kipper's eyes!

Bit insulting to AHL teams, they can score more than 1 goal in 3 games.

I just went back on the PVR to watch Sherman. He had his hands covering his face. Looked as bored as I did watching this game. And Sacco has the same confused, disgusted, mystified look he always does. What a clueless, sad bunch.

He'll copy Brooks Hatlen after he was released from Shawshank?

If literally every single one of us expected this result, why are we so mad at this result?

Canucks are a much better team when both rosters are healthy, nevermind the lineup we iced tonight.

Hopefully that big thing he does is signing O'Reilly...and maybe try to trade for something who can put the puck in the net/play defense

Couldn't agree more, in fact it's comically bad tbh.

What exactly has Sacco done to keep his job? He rode an incredibly hot Craig Anderson into the 8th seed his rookie season, but since then it's pretty much been all down hill.

Even those of us who have never been nor never will be involved with hockey at the NHL level can see the dumb mistakes he makes (i.e. putting Hunwick or Barrie on the PK, poor line juggling/management, moving players like Duchene out of position to a left or right wing, no clear break-out, terrible special teams set-ups, etc.).

It truly baffles me that he still has his job here. And I would bet we would be a much, much better team with a head coach who actually has had some previous NHL head coaching experience.
