The first three games? Vigneault and his coaching staff (PP was a disaster), lack of effort and cohesion, best players we not playing like our best players - at least not consistently - and we generated very little in terms of offensive chances.
Definitely AV with help from the refs. For the eight years that I've been a Canucks fan, I've never paid attention enough to coaching decisions, but I opened my eyes to these past four games. AV was horribly outcoached this postseason.
And of course, it saddens me knowing that this is probably the last time we see some players that played tonight in a Canucks uniform, including Luongo on the bench.
The coaching staff's failure to adjust was pathetic. We couldn't break out the second the sharks gave us any fore-checking pressure. It was like watching the kings turn it over 2009/10, we laughed them out of the building.
I don't blame the D or goalies. With a healthy Tanev the D should be fine next year. The ability to hold a lead went downhill once Manny was gone. I hope Gaunce can fill that hole. Won't miss any UFAs. I like AV, but I also think he will be gone. I hope next year a number of rookies get a shot. I'd rather rebuild with vets still around than retool by adding vets from other teams at this point.
Prediction: Raymond will sign with another team, and all his haters here will be shocked how well he does in the future.
