What if AV busted out his own trap system of yore that won him the Jack Adams?

Gillis would probably fire him in a second but for shits and giggles, if employing the old defensive system won us a cup in the next few years would you be able to suffer through it long enough to actually give a shit about it by the time we won? A cup at any cost? I am asking sincerely... I really don't know what to think about that. It sure would be easier if we at least got that ONE cup under our belts last year.

If AV is a defensive specialist, one type of coach that might be worth their cost would be an offensive forward coach, ie a "power forward" coach. Someone who could bring out the potential in our power forwards. Of course, we only really have two power forwards (excluding Kessler)...I am thinking Booth and Kassian....but someone needs to take them in hand and help them reach their potential. And maybe they could have a go at Raymond as well.

Maybe AV can use the extra time to teach Henrik and Daniel how to play a little better defensively, and can figure out how to cut down on the short handed goals against.

A power forwards coach is a great idea. Perhaps MG can look into getting a power forward skills and development coach to complement Gagner. Everyone wants Gary Roberts but I think he likes what he is doing. As for assistant coaches what about Rick Tocchet? Can't think of two many guys in coaching right now who would seem qualifed to be a power forward coach. Adam Deadmarsh is in Colorado but I don't think he's coming here.

Yeah i know a missed opportunity last year but whoever coatches is going to have to figure out how to play agaist the central division or pacific with the exeption of the Sharks.

Can someone explain to me where shits and giggles comes from? I mean I never giggle when I am on the toilet, does anyone?

Regarding AV, gonzo.

Don't like how he manages his players and younger players.

...excitement gained from an often simple action or occurence; often used to explain reason in response to a stupid question.

...a vulgarized version of the phrase "kicks-and-giggles".

rats is right, there was a "mens magazine" with an area called for shits and giggles which would talk about who the hell knows what.

Some also think it comes from Austin Powers apparently.

It is just a cliche saying, a good shit can be a highly relieving (wot), exhilerating or even inspiring experience, there's nothing like a good laugh...

..just for shits and giggles...

I've been aware of the saying for 30 plus years...

I always thought they based the Austin Powers character on Donlever.

Back on topic, I'd like to see the entire coaching staff replaced depending on the replacements.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
