Much as I want us to dominate Phoenix as we should. There is a small part that wants a losing streak to finally put the nail in AV's coffin.

I hope we lose the next 8 games so AV can be fired.

It scares me to think of how bad MG will let it get before he does something.

Bro I've been complaining about him for years. Only a Cup would stop it at this point.

Oh and anyone that wants to go on a losing streak so we can get rid of AV, not going to happen. Only way that happens is if we miss the playoffs dramatically, and I think it goes without saying that if you are hoping for that you are an idiot.

So yeah, basically AV is never getting fired.

Gillis had to back AV last season. Another playoff exit in the 1st round and AV is gone. Aquilini is not going to sit by and let the same guys be in charge while he's losing out on a huge amount of playoff revenue.

Even though it's the first game back from a trip I'm optimistic. I think they'll play a tight game tomorrow.

Did not know that. At least Aquilini still shows he cares a lot about a Cup, not just money. But I'll tell you what, firing Gillis would be a huge mistake though. He is I think most responsible for making this team what they are today, a perennial Stanley Cup-contender. Great hire by Aquilini and would hate to see him or Gilman leave.

That won't put the nail in his coffin. We would likely see a coaching change in the off season anyways (the season is too short to implement a new system, especially for us), why let it the season go to waste?

Anyways, this should be a win.

Unless we win a cup I think we see Lindy Ruff here next year, whether it's as an assistant or head coach.

Tbh I think he gets a new job before the season ends.

I see this as just a terribly boring hockey game. Not excited for this one.

I haven't liked AV for years, I think he's been terribly outcoached too many times in the playoffs and the SCF was the biggest example of that.

If we get bounced early in the playoffs again, how are we a perennial Stanley Cup contender?

What contender has gone deep every year? All the best teams have had their own playoff disappointments recently. Pittsburgh, check. Detroit, check. Chicago, check. Boston, check. New York, check. Every top team I can think of has washed out early in the last two years.

AV does have some faults but I think what he brings in terms of hard work and accountability can't be taken for granted. A new coach could push us over the top, but I'm also afraid that we might be kicking out a cornerstone. Who's to say that our current roster can maintain what it has currently under a new coach.
