I believe AV was the best coach the Nucks have ever had. I truly believe if it weren't for the huge amount of injuries against Boston, he would have brought us home the cup. After the cup imo the nucks went into a funk. The refs being so against them coupled with the crushing defeat really stole the motivation from the team as a whole, or so it seemed imo. As much as I liked AV I believe it was time to bring in a motivator to kick the team in the rear and get them out of their funk. I think Torts is the perfect guy for that. But that doesn't change the fact that the Canucks have never enjoyed so much success under any other coach. Switching his team from a defensive system, to an offensive one and back again really showed his ability to adapt to the team he had on the ice. Every team loves to badmouth their coach, but I think AV did a great job during his time here.
