Don't like to see anyone lose their job, but this may be the start of something better for AV.
The Canucks are an enigma, lots of 'jump' at times, and other times just lethargic. Wouldn't want to be the new coach jumping into this franchise ..... How should this team be changed?

I kind of wonder if Gillis should have gone instead of AV, but I suppose time will tell. In any case I don't think AV will have to spend much time looking for work.

I like the idea of trading for Crosby but I don't think the Pens can be Jedi mind tricked on that one[B)]

Gillis should have gotten the boot, not AV. This year's goal-tending fiasco was a joke. Luongo's contract is a joke. He's the most over-rated goalie in the history of the NHL, and in typical Canuck fashion, Schneider is being over-hyped as well. I don't think a single soul outside of the Vancouver market is convinced that Schneider is a starting goalie.

Gillis and Aqualini are out to lunch, and so are all of the Vancouver fans who think there is some weird enigma factor to their lack of success. I'd say their success is more surprising than anything, and if you look at the makeup of the team, you have to give the credit for the success to the coach, who has just been fired.

It's so easy to hate on the Canucks.

Agree ....
It's going to be another long stretch before the Canucks get close again.
I'll bet that the 1st line goes un-changed into the new season.

Agree as well. I was still not that impressed with The Sister's this year.
99% of the people thought Gillis should have been given the boot... will they listen ..noooo !

WOW....Boston in 4 over Pittsburgh...shutting them out in this last game!

Predicting a Boston/Chicago final, with Boston taking it in five.

I never would have expected that result. 2 goals all series? Crosby and Malkin shut out for 4 games in a row?

Chicago/Boston would be a good series, and I pick Chicago in 7.

Alain Vigneault ...... new Head Coach - New York Rangers

It would be great to see AV and the Rangers backhand the Canuck slackards at every meeting.
Vigneault did his best in trying to make a 'silk purse' out of Vancouver's little 'schoolkid' team.

Pffffffttttttt .......

I should just stop making Stanley Cup predictions...

Chicago in six...who would have thunk it? 2 goals in 17 seconds sealed the deal in the last minutes of the 3rd period.

See you next April!
