His inability to trade a goalie, the bad drafting over the last 5 years, getting overpaid players from teams with a tradition of losing - Ballard and Booth, and Gillis lack of balls to make a bold move is killing this team
First off, Gillis started out here giving Vigneault exactly what AV asked for. That seemed to stop after AV said he needed a solid shutdown center on the 3rd line to win in the playoffs. We got Pahlsson. We were done in 5 games.....and Vigneault admitted he was unprepared without Daniel.

So the GM gives the coach what he says he needs, the coach gets out coached, and then continues to prove himself inept the following season......and this is the GM's fault how?

The power play was excellent at killing momentum.

I had hoped we at least had enough resources to load up a good first unit power play.

It's been consistent lack of scoring but its not clear whether its the personel or the deployment that's the main problem.
At least I can't tell...




Gillis has two cards to play at this point and both might not be enough

Luongo might not fetch a plug in price to effect change in time
But canning the coach...that does save gillis for next year IF IF they make the playoffs

Are we trying to save Gillis or the win column?

I dunno. Both I guess.
If gillis is smart enough to save himself, he'll save the teams chances in the process.

So, I gather there's no chance at all this is just a losing streak?

Every team hits the skids from time to time. Lots of games left, but I tend to agree that it's time for a shakeup on the personnel side.

The Canucks' response to the the latest loss: Schroeder was sent down; Ebbett comes up; and Higgins went to centre last game.

LOL ..... Blob was a little bit cut last night. That said I believe the team has quit on AV . Also it would be nice is Gillis came up for air and actually noticed the fact that he has one NHL centre on his team atm . Lappy looks like an AHL player at this point.

Are you not a little concerned with the teams play since the brawl in Beantown , Topper ?

THIS^

That was the last time we saw elite play from this team...since then the team has gone on a slow decline. This is not AV's fault, that the he has no centre's to work with outside of Hank. You honestly cannot put the onus of playing the centre position in a capable fashion on the likes of Higgins and Raymond, it's fucking ridiculous. Then you have Ebbett and L Lappiere? LMAO...is it duh,no wonder, why we are shitting the bed right now, that being said, this team was still not playing elite hockey with Kesler AND Bieksa in the line-up. That first stretch of good hockey we were playing is not an indication of what this team truly is. I still think we can sneak into the playoffs but we certainly are far from being labeled Cup contendors. As in the words of Guy Bouchet describing the Bruins, "they (Bruins) are a culture", we are not. And that is not AV's fault, it's the personnel on the ice that AV has to play with. It's about fucking time Gillis starts to make some decent moves cause until now, outside of BC Boys, Garrison (I guess, still waiting on him) and Hamhius and and to a lesser extent - Tanev and Higgins...he's shit the bed on every transaction he's done, drafting included. When was the last time you saw this team roll 4 lines successfully? Is that AV's fault? HE NEEDS SOME PLAYERS!! Gillis, do your fucking job!

Pac B my point is and was the team has quit on the coach. Yes we all know they need at least one more quality centre but they are NOT as bad as they have shown over the past month. Gillis needs to make some personnel moves but the time has come to boot the all the coaches asses out of town . The PP sucks, the system sucks.... puck support and gap control seem like swearwords. Clearly teams have figured the Canucks out but AV and crew have no ability to adjust, but he sure has time to giggle at the bench and chew on lozenges. Exactly how many points is he willing to puke away in shootouts ??
