Beezer, the issues with AV are well documented and go far beyond this year.

He forgets players on the bench.
He doesn't adjust.
He ALWAYS prefers vets over kids.
He mishandles players (e.g. Buchnevich).
He doesn't allow for line chemistry to emerge. And if it happens, he destroys it the next game/shift.
He doesn't put the best D players on the ice when it's needed.
He needs superb goaltending to cover up the tons of deficiencies of his defensive "scheme".
He instills gutless and pussified attitude in his players. They don't stand up for each other, don't hit and don't clear the front of the net.
(The list goes on)

He never won anything meaningful and he never will.

I have never been an AV fan on any of the teams or even the Rangers.. BUT I do not think he is the problem. This team was screwed when they revamped the D into a pile of crap.... buying out Girardi long in the tooth but still plays well.. ask Tampa.... then you resign Smith who I never thought was that good.. certainly not 4 plus mil... then sign ****tenkirk who is a one dimensional y player AT BEST for 8 MILLION.. wow... add to this Klein leaving and you have a revamp which was never going to help a hall of fame goalie in the twilight of his career. As goalies that older they need more.. not less help... You also take Stepan a two-way player and remove him and you get worse D.. and you then also move up sophomore Skeji to more minutes and you have 3 D who are hopeless in their own end... McDonough who is trying to do too much.. holden who has been decent .. and a bunch of retreads.... so really the D's death this year is a major factor in the situation they face. Then your big offensive resigning got injured and Kreider has been out and there have been a heap of injuries all at the same time.... so AV is where you would expect him to be.

Changing the coach this year is a waste... a new coach is not going to make these guys better.. and I am not sure what system you can devise that will make ****tenkirk a top or even second pairing D man... he spends more time looking for a pretzel vendor than the play in his own zone.. Trotz last year moved him to the third pairing and top PP unit.. which is where he should be.. Skeji is a decent player but he is Boyle/MDZ 2.0... but he might be able to learn... then you have Holden gone... and Smith on waivers in the minors.. this team is in trouble and a new coach does not change the poor personnel on the ice.


Hank's talent covers up all the warts in whatever AV is coaching in the d end of the ice. If the Rangers had an average goalie, AV never would have been extended and probably been fired long ago.

AV benefited greatly from the Torts instilled team toughness. Layering the AV run and gun onto the hardened Rangers was a recipe for success. As the toughness has faded into history, the run and gun gets harder to operate as teams just fearlessly mash the Rangers and the Rangers do not return the favor. The lack of finishing checks is a huge flaw and that is all on AV.

Alain Vigneault said on Wednesday that tonight's game against the Isles is the Rangers "biggest game of the year so far" and that after some poor performances against the Islanders, the Rangers are "due to have a real solid 200ft game at both ends."





Some coach, hoping his team shows up instead of demanding they show up. Fire Herb.

Does this guy think before he speaks. Post Islander gem from gummy.

“””On putting up 50 shots, "there are a couple of areas that we are going to address quickly with our group, areas where we could get better second opportunities if we do a couple of things differently. We will address that with our group and get ready for the next game.””””


The trade deadline looming and he hasn’t discussed offensive rebounds yet? Suprise.
