Mike Gillis on Alain Vigneault and the losing streak
"Listen, everyone is here because I brought them in so the responsibility is mine. We're at the point in this where we can get emotional and we can get angry and we can start pointing fingers," said Gillis. "Instead, my approach is that we're going to be more analytical, we're going to boil it down, and we're going to work hard."That and more from TSN.
"To suggest that the same coach that people were saying has changed his style - the team plays great, everyone's happy - a month and a half ago should now be replaced, is nonsense," Gillis added. "It's all of our responsibilities, it isn't just Alain's, and that's how we're going to approach it."
It's tough to think positively right now. I'm not sure what the issue is in the locker room. I can see the issues on the ice. The character of this team is currently in question and who knows, maybe a win on Sunday will change the moral.
It has been a month since the Canucks have been able to win 2 games in a row. Since that point mediocrity and inconsistency has mired the team.
- maybe the Canucks need to play away from home, as they have lost their last 4 games at GM Place on the current skid. They hit the road for 1 game next Tuesday and then get a week off for the All Star break. Oh wait, that road game is against the Sharks. Yep, it's hard to be positive right now.
