    If they lose to Arizona, he's out.

    Gotta figure out if you're trying to actually do something this season because it'll be over before it starts if they're not careful.

    When Will AV Get Fired?



    Based off that schedule....

    I'll go November 9th. They likely lose 75% of the games leading up to that date.

    Ha Pars...now that you post the schedule, I want one of two things to happen...

    1) He gets fired after Nov 17th against Torts' Blue Jackets...
    -or-
    2) He gets to face the 'nucks on the 26th and gets canned, win or lose.

    And I use the term 'want' loosely. I want this fucking team to win, I don't want AV to get fired, but if it happens and this thread exists and that's our schedule, then ^^^ those are my 'wants.'

    Yeah, the 18th would be my 2nd choice

    Vegas baby! A non regulation win/loss to the Yotes, then a dismal loss in Montreal (again). Fresh start at home to the expansion team. 3-7-2 or 2-7-3. Sucks however you dress it up.

    I said in my thread that I created that I don't believe he makes it out of October. Still sticking with that. Tonight's performance seals it. What is Gorton waiting for? This season turns into a bust more and more each game. They cannot get their shit together and looked disjointed. Time for a new game plan.

    If they lose and are lifeless vs. the Coyotes, he'll be out. If they lose vs. the Coyotes and MTL, he'll definitely be out. Might not even be on the flight back to NY after the MTL game.

    If not today, 11/11 following EDM or 12/1 following Carolina (if team doesn't imrpove). Both games have 3 days off after.

    I'm still not onboard. Team looks great when they play his system.

    I think he'll be fired but I don't believe this current run is his fault - the team just isn't very good and hasn't been for a couple of years now. Management is fooling itself if they think we're losing because of poor coaching. We're losing because our team is bad.

    After the Edmonton game gives the new coach 3 days to work in his coaching philosophy. Also, Hank is not helping his cause.

    I dont think that will matter if they plan on making Ruff the interim.

    Since I can't vote yet, here's my prediction:

    I'm going to say that since he just signed a new deal worth some pretty big bucks, he WON'T be fired....He'll be "re-assigned" to do some bullshit work in the front office, along with his cohorts in crime behind that dead bench.

    Time frame: End of the year.

    No need to make any changes now, and besides I'm pretty sure this team is destined for a solid 70 point season if it stays the way it is. If anything I would like to see if we could trade off some of the older parts and stock pile some solid draft picks. I know that's really a stretch, but I think Gorton has it in him.

    He'd better, or we're going to be cellar dwellers for quite some time.

    Question is, who do we get to replace him?

    But they never play 60 minutes. What good is his vaunted system if it breaks down every game for long stretches?

    0 for 6 on the PP last night,s till too many instances where shots don't get to the net, no traffic in front of the goalie, constant overpassing.

    He's untradeable with that contract. The only solution is...hope he plays better.Because not sure anybody would want him at this price.

    I say April. I'm sure some of this is his fault but I can't imagine any other coach coming in and coaching this same group to anything of merit.

    This is a player issue, not a coach issue.
    Changing the coach doesn't change that. We've complained about those things since Trots. As in Trottier.

    Team is in a much bigger need for a bottom 6 vet with toughness and leadership.
