I acknowledge the team is shit right now, but that doesn't mean the coach is to blame, there's no inherent truth there. The issue is a combination of Sundin not being ready or able (he is skill wise are best player outside the crease), stupid defensive play and, yes, some particularly bad luck. If you can show me AV in practice not telling his defense man to simplify the game then I'll give you some credo. He's clearly noticing issues, he put Sundin on the wing last night with Kesler and Burrows to minimize his "liabilities" due to being f'n slow as a snail. AV is clearly still alert and trying things, he benched everyone's favorite whipping boy Raymond. I'm not sure what else you can do. What's the new guy going to try?
