so what have we coined this "5 minute blow-up" as? it has been going on for a couple years. Do we have a name for it?
Give it to Luongo i guess.
Split the Sedins. It isn't working. It probably won't work anyways but everyone else gets split so they should too.

Well why didnt he want blood last season? Or through the giant pile of dog**** that is this season? This is ridiculous.
Because they have patience. Also because you don't fire a coach after winning the President's Trophy. It's not really that crazy that AV didn't get fired last year. Firing him mid-season this year would not be in Aquilini's interest as there would be no available replacements until the end of the year and this way he might've had a better chance of making some playoff money than with Arniel or some other scrub.
The way I figure it, this team still has a thin sliver of chance. With the Sharks up 3-0, they just might take their foot off the pedal. Capitalize on that and take it one game at a time. Push it to game 7 and anything goes.
I know it'll come to a shock to some of you given many of my posts in the past about Bieksa - but I think a different coach who will NOT give a long leash to him might be able to shake-up him enough to pay attention to what he's doing on the ice. The "let him do as many brain farts on the ice without fear of demotion/benching" clearly doesn't work with Bieksa.
Thats a good point barnard. I wonder if axing av would do that for a lot of guys. We have seen beasts in bieksa exler hamhuis garrison etc. hell even ballard was good prior to being introduced to av. To be honest burrows kesler the sedins higgins have been inconsistent. I really wonder if all our finger pointing at individuals is so deserved or if such poor coaching has a far bigger weight then we realise
