    It's Time

    AV needs to go once this series is over. Team needs new identity. I'm so tired of the lackluster efforts, the awful PP, the same mundane shit. This shit is embarrassing

    He just got an extension. He should have been canned last season. He wasn't. You've got more vanilla hockey to look forward to!

    MSG has never had a problem paying 2 coaches. Who-Sutter? You always go from a hardass like Tortarella to an easy touch like AV back to a hardass

    I'm usually the first to drop the "extension" card, but I don't give a fuck anymore. Bye, Felicia. You gotta go.

    He's not a good playoff coach and he never will be.

    I'd be ashamed if I was the coach of team that just played like that at home in the playoffs.

    Not when he's the 2nd highest paid coach. He'll get another year at a minimum.

    While true, remember, they fired Tortorella immediately after signing him to a two or three-year extension, too.

    They fired Torts bc Lundqvist threw him under the bus in the exit interviews. It came out of no where. I doubt anyone is throwing AV under the bus.

    I get that. I'm talking about the "he just signed an extension", "he's the second-highest paid coach". I've said the same things. Hell, just a few days ago. I'm just trying to illustrate that MSG isn't adverse to making a coaching change despite these factors.

    No even strength playoff goal at MSG since Dom Moore in 2015 ECF game 1. How do you allow that to go on without consequence?

    Didn't the players have something to do with that? Complaining to management I mean?

    Others will have to come into play, but I don't think it's impossible if they skid out of this in five games.

    this fucking infuriates me. I recently heard Mike Commadore talk about how much Babcock sucks. You know what? The guy gets fucking results -- either get on board or get out. For this group to throw the coach out and then become the biggest bunch of pussies just makes me so fucking mad.

    Fuck these guys.

    If they skid out in five games again, I just don't see how, at the very least, they can go into next season with even remotely the same team. This is, what, the third or fourth kick at the can with this core? They simply cannot get the job done. Period.

    So that means pretty much anyone not named McDonagh need to be on the table for trade.

    That's the very least they can do if there is no appetite for more sweeping change in terms of coaching or management (which I think is needed FAR more.)

    It's really water under the bridge at the moment, but there was some serious hatred towards Lundqvist when the rumors came out that he pretty much orchestrated Torts' removal. I think he somewhat redeemed himself with his play in the Cup run and the other playoffs. But yeah, pretty shitty.

    And Mike Fuckin' Commodore has no room to talk lol
