But of course the "cool response" is to make a joke of a solution to something's that's been a huge problem for the team for well over a year now. Yep lets just keep everything how it is and just expect things to change without doing anything about it. U sure ur not browns family since that's exactly what he's been doing?

Don't start separate threads, there's a reason it's called "coaching discussion".

I'd love to see some accountability from AV like Babcock has taken.

More Babcock: "I’m responsible for how hard we work, how well we’re prepared and how well we execute. It’s a new day today. The sun came up."

Babcock.

AV would rather throw young offensive prospects under the bus, and preach that the players are responsible for motivating themselves because he doesn't have damn clue how to do it. It's never AV's fault. The guy is a complete ***** and will never take accountability for the way this team is responding. Remember after the playoffs where he pretty much said he didn't expect dan sedin to miss the playoffs so he didn't try things out to prepare for such an event? Typical AV. Everything that happens is never his fault. I will be so glad when he's out of here. Good riddance.

Blah. Coaching really, really sucks right now. I don't know how anyone can dispute it. When your coach is promoting players for playing badly (Lapierre), putting a rookie with no experience playing the point on the point of the 1st PP unit of a struggling PP, unable to adjust to two man forecheck the whole season, etc.

Not to mention completely ripping Schroeder in the media.

Babcock is the man, taking responsibilities for his mistakes

AV on the other hand, not a damn word

It's time. I don't even think AV is a bad coach, but it's time. This team needs a new voice.

Better start to drape the noose over a strong branch ...

AV is going to be toast.

For a while now ... as in at least three years I have harbored resentment to AV but he was winning so I let that temper my reaction to him.

Now the Canucks look terrible and the moves he makes look awful.

Showing up your GM by alienating and misusing his acquesitions like Ballard and Hodgson etc may now finally bring an end to his reign.

It looks clear the team is tuning him out.

I've been hoping/praying for Gillis to release a statement that Vigneault has his full support. Need that kiss of death.

Realistically it's really the only move this team can make right now to have some sort of a positive impact.

I really admire AV for how he has handled himself in this market, but I'll take Jon Cooper now... please.

Even if it's only to say to the players: This is on you. I had to do this because of the way we are performing as a team. If you like living in Vancouver, you'd better reflect it in your execution otherwise further changes will be made.

But they've been horrible for a while now... not just in this game. Most of this season, in fact.

Yea, I know, just sayin that giving up breakaways is not surprising at the moment.
