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.RoyalDude wrote: I disagree Blob, AV is a good coach, it's the team put in place by Gillis for AV to coach that ain't cutting the mustard. Outside of the Sedins, Burrows, Raymond, Hansen, Higgins, Kassian the rest of the forwards can all fucking go IMO. Schroeder needs to go back to Chicago.
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
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?
