Brother if you don't think AV should be fired I wonder what would have to happen to get you on board?
If he fails to get the two-time President's Trophy-winning team loaded with a Selke winner, two Art Ross winners, Jennings winners, and a Vezina finalist into the playoffs. His teams have won the NW division title five out of the six years he's been here (IIRC). Oh, and Mike Babcock would need to not only be available but willing to leave Detroit to coach here. THAT's what would get me on board, because any other coach would likely be a serious step down.
If he crashed the plane the presidents trophy winners were on(on their way to game 3) could he be fired then?
Was he the pilot? And even if he was, a posthumous firing would be rather cold, wouldn't you say?
Look AV is a professional his league leading team got taken to school by an 8 seed.They didn't lose a closley contested series they got beaten like rented mule & for once goaltending wasn't a real issue.3 home losses???? WTF
Why don't you give Detroit a call and see why they aren't calling for Mike Babcock's head. Their team has been bumped in the early rounds of a playoff for a couple of years now. Claude Julien's team lost three of four home games in a place as hostile to road teams as there is.
Getting outplayed in a 7 game series happens. Get over it.
Scheinder is as good as Luongo which is why Luongo's contract must go.
Schneider actually appears to be the better goalie, at an age where he is about to enter his prime, and at a potentially reasonable price. Luongo has been exceptionally supportive and unexpectedly (at least from my perspective) understanding and mature about this. I would have no problem (other than perhaps the potential cap $ locked up in the goalie position) of starting the season in October with both goalies on the roster. For that reason, I would disagree with the "Luongo's contract must go" sentiment.
