And what do you expect from a player who, when asked about figuring out where he fits in the gameplan, gave a vague answer that indicated he had no idea how the gameplan worked other than "puck possession".....
We are seeing quite a trend of late with players coming on board via trade, call-up, and FA, where they just don't seem to fit in and can't play for AV.
Some of this is on the players. Some of this is on the coach. Some of this is on the GM for not seeing the writing on the wall.
Seriously Meds, do you honestly think the problem to this teams woes is all AV? LOL, hell I don't like AV but he ain't the REAL problem here.
This is as comical as those here who said that Bergeron, Lucic, Marchand and Krejci would not be the same players they are today if AV was their coach. LMAO! Give it a break.
You're just frustrated and looking to put a face to the blame, a scapegoat. It's either AV, Edler or Raymond. All I'm saying is that there is a bigger problem here than just those 3. I'd start with the aging Sedins, lack of depth at forward in the goal scoring department, lack of 2nd line depth to play with Kesler. The disappointment in Kassian, not replacing Erhoff's offense, the Luongo fiasco, the Malhotra fiasco, the poor drafting and developing, lack of proper centre ice depth, yet we trade Hodgson for a minor league player to beat up Lucic? blah, blah, blah. AV is not the real problem.
