Personally, I think AV's style, while effective, is too simple. ... Now he needs to move on, create a dependable power play and re-establish our ability to be a puck control team. With what talent? The problem (as has been pointed out) is that the style of hockey being played in Vancouver is largel...

For what it's worth, there's not a ticket to be had (I tried). So even there's only 8,000 out of town visitors, at least the locals seem interested. And you have to see the size of the Convention Center (which is right next to the Philips Arena and the Georgia Dome) - it's MASSIVE. I'll tell you thi...

It'd be interesting to see how the board of directors would act with a GM like Burke at the helm - if they continue meddle the way they do, he'd bite their heads off; both in private and in the media. As long as the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan owns MLSE, it's going to be a joke. There's no clear v...

The fact that you'd respond to a question with an low class ad hom isn't really suprising giving your past posting history. You've given no reason for Vigneault to be fired other than you think so, given no alternatives as to his replacement and no reason why any replacement would do anything diffe...

Wow - that didn't take long.

Well, at least he was good for a goal. :)

You rate right up the with Pratt. Interesting you still haven't responded to the question of who replaces Vigneault in this little fantasy of yours and why they'd do a better job. I'm all about trying to improve the team and the coaching staff when it makes sense. This, at this point in the season,...

We'll wait until the end of next year's playoff run. Then all you guys that don't want him fired will be screaming for his head. As usual, I'm about a year & a half ahead of the curve. Don't sprain your arm patting yourself on the back. :roll: Don't worry, I realize I know more about the Canucks th...

Who exactly do you propose takes over the team then? I hear Glen Hanlon is available - he did such a great job in Washington. Paul Maurice might be available soon too after his fantastic job in Toronto. :roll: This is what amuses me about "fire the coach" threads. Little to (mostly) no thought goes ...

Anyone willing to part with Edler for Sundin ? - that's the latest rumor coming out of Toronto. Detroit will push hard for the Swede and Burke has said his 2 first rounders are available. May the best GM win. Within reason. In a word - no. Hell no. Fuck no. Why would we give up Edler, who's only go...

So, what if we 'give up' a pile of our guys (what team wants another teams 'give up's anyways?) and in this christmas crack induced pipe dream somehow get Ovetchkin, and he doesn't mesh with the leadership in our dressingroom (say perhaps because he is a bit of a primadonna?)...... then what? now y...

IDo you give up the farm? No - especially with ours finally being built up a bit. But if Nonis can get Ovechkin interested in an offer sheet, he'd be stupid not to do it. Hey Kowch, Thanks for your input! I just wanted to make a few minor points: 1) Perhaps I WOULD consider trading a very large por...

I kind of agree with Farhan... if you have the opportunity to grab a player like Ovechkin, you do it. I've had the opportunity to see him play live and you miss a lot on TV. He's almost always in position to make a play. He's strong, he's physical, he's fast and oh yeah... he can score. Do you give ...
