Yeah no. I think the Aquilinis like making money. Theyve probably fired more coaches than any team in the league the last five years. They’ve retained or bought a bunch of players and seen the team play in front of of 15,000 fans and season ticket sales drying up. They aren’t going to enjoy continuing to eat player salaries so the overpaid slug or slugs can play for another team.
Well, Hell; if they've fired more coaches that any other team recently, why not really make it one for the record books and do one more.
please :twisted:

Without getting into details; He, and most of his staff, are not qualified to run "this' Canuck team at the point it is at.

Well he doesn’t have the final say in roster cuts. He has an opinion, some input. But the final say goes to Benning. Who as it might happen has had at least one rookie on the team each and every year he has been GM. Yes Linden Vey was a rookie. Ben Hutton was a rookie. Stetcher, Virtanen, McCaan, Horvat, Boeser, Trymankin, and I’m sure I’m missing a few.

This year Pettersson and Motte are still in the running.

I guess it's ok to use this thread. It's not just the way Green, and staff, are handling the team, in regards to putting him with him and him with him.
Promoting and demoting,( and yes, I'm still annoyed ), but was I the only one that noticed last year that virtually 0 scouting on the teams we were facing had been done. If it had, Green must have chose to ignore it. We almost never seemed prepared for the line-up we were facing.
Now I realize we are developing but part of that is what I mentioned. Every opponent has a different challenge.
I wont even get into the way I feel about the system they've been attempting to play.

On what basis are you claiming we did next to zero scouting, or in the alternative Green ignored it?

I am confused by what your posting..

Are you watching the team NOT scout other teams, or just watching Green ignore the scouting reports??

That is a valid point. I will do my best to find that out. Still got a couple of sources I can try.
