    Think it's a little silly for people to be acting as if AV couldn't coach a team if his life depended on it- he definitely has his flaws, as does every coach, and I would welcome a new coach to oversee the rebuild...but let's not kid ourselves; AV would be fired before breakfast and hired before lunch. He has had a lot of success and is a good coach. Just not for this team anymore

    Disagree. That 13-14 team once they adapted to the system was world's better.

    The 14-15 team was basically the 2010 Chicago team with a good goalie.

    I think we should be beyond asking this question based on AV tenure here.

    Keep him out of Middletown please. (my kid plays hockey there).

    A lot of Rangers fans who are not too happy with AV.

    He'd have to give up his oral fixation first. He's always sucking on a lozenge or chewing the hell out of his gum.

    To go after AV is really unfair IMO. He could've brought us the cup a few times already a few years ago when we had a good team with an average goalie. Now we simply have no team. Time to rebuild.

    When in his tenure did the Rangers have an average goalie?

    AV sucks the life out of his goaltenders with his stupid man to man "defense".

    Or it's just as possible that they only failed to win BECAUSE of him.

    Based on what many here are saying about your assessment of the level of goaltending I have to think you just waded into the deep end with deflated swimmies. You tried to analyze, you gave it a shot, no shame in that, but you just didn't have the training or equipment needed

    He can go coach the Seattle team when they start. He's done in NY.

    What's the all time record for most goals given up I. The first 5 minutes of a game for a season? Its obscure but I can't imagine were that far off....

    Did you mean another team? The 2010 Chicago team won the cup and is considered one of the best cup winning teams post-lockout. To compare them unfavorably to the 14-15 team and say that the 14-15 team is worse than the 13-14 team because they're a better version of the 2010 Chicago team is odd unless you made a mistake somewhere.

    I can't believe there are still some fans who think he's great with young players or that none of this is his fault. To be fair, not all of it is his fault, but to say he's blameless is mindblowingly stupid.

    I get that AV is good for the tank, But player evaluation is impossible in his system. Thats about the only thing that matters right now, and we can't do it because errrrbody is terrible.
