Time To Replace Vigneault

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

It is time to either put Vigneault (read: us) out of his (our) misery, not to mention a couple of assistant coaches who would be networking for their next job already, if what we suspect to be pending was actually announced as fact.

Penned beat man Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province: “Like a carton of sour milk, the expiration date on Vigneault has passed. Move on.”

We’re not so sure that analogy isn’t a tad harsh, as we’ve always found Vigneault to be anything but sour. Guarded around playoff time, yes. Sour? No, he’s usually good for a laugh or two.

But after seven seasons at the helm in Vancouver there is no doubt: The Big West Coast problem might not be Vigneault’s fault entirely, but it is his problem.

I’m seeing the same, EP.

From CBSSports:

The Vancouver Canucks said they wanted to go in a new direction this offseason and apparently that begins with head coach.

On Wednesday the Canucks fired coach Alain Vigneault as well as assistants Rick Bowness and Newell Browne according to Louis Jean of TVA Sports.
