Not that surprising. The club needs a new voice in the GM spot as well. I question most of the moves this offseason outside of Emery.

Glad they didn't wait on this one. Anyone know when Homer's contract is up?

Paddock should be fine as an assistant and he's also a good X and Os kind of guy. As for Lappy, that's a leap of faith the team is taking. Any news on whether Joe Mullen was let go or is he still part of the group?

McCarthy has been let go, per Dreger. Paddock and Lappy to assist.

Yes, he was in charge of the PK.

Only thing I would have done differently is fired him halfway through last season. It's been painfully obvious that his system hasn't worked in how long now? Teams have figured out how to counter this teams one and only method of play. As opposed to coaches like julien, quenville, tippet, etc. who employ a very adaptive system, Laviolette utilizes one system at all times and when teams figure it out, he's completely unable/unwilling to adapt. He had lost this locker room and player didn't believe in his system anymore. That was obvious to me when vinny became the only player playing with any enthusiasm: he's new and hasn't realized lavis complete incompetence yet. This team needs a savvy hockey coach who can sculpt a system to our strengths instead of forcing in a system that is so obviously catered towards a team built opposite to ours. I'm not sure that berube is the answer, but perhaps he'll have an interim tag until they can find a more suitable candidate.

that is positive news at least

Laperriere will be a good head coach some day

Berube = PK.

McCarthy = defense. McCarthy was a former captain of the Canucks.

Bryz and Lavy gone, no more excuses !!!!

Time to roll baby

Would be nice to see Holmer gone as well, as waiting till game 3 is idiotic when we all knew Lavy should have been gone a year ago.

This should have been done six months ago. At least then a new coach would have had a full training camp to implement some sort of an organized system. I have a feeling Berube is just a place holder until they find someone they really want. I will say one thing on behalf of Berube, I have a feeling he'll hold he players more accountable than Lavy ever did. Maybe then we'll see some discipline from some of the older players who Lavy let slide.

Hopefully they run a sort of 1--2-2 instead of this gimmicky 2-1-2 where the center is essentially taken out of the play if the other team out works our forecheck. Like, we have a corps of big, thick, relatively unquick blue liners and you utilize an uptempo forecheck that leaves your defenseman and thus your goaltender out to dry constantly? By the time the forwards get back into the d zone they're completely gassed and ineffective. No wonder we can never get the puck out of our own zone or orchestrate any sort of breakout. I feel like I could have coached this team better than lavi.

I don't see the point of firing a GM 3 games into a season. That really won't change anything.

You probably could have. I think anyone could have coached this team better. It's too bad too. I've said it about Laviolette in another thread - incredibly intelligent and smart guy, but just completely unwavering with regards to adapting his system.

It's because he had all off season to make the necessary changes, and we've picked up right where we left off. You nip it in the bud and try and salvage the season earlier rather than wait until it's unsalvageable.

Wow, wikipedia wastes no time. It ALREADY has this up:

Quote:
