Now who's responsibility is it to change up the system? I say the coach.
I think AV has tried to change it up unsuccessfully, so he goes back to what he knows has worked in the past. Dump it in, try to gain possession, get a shot on goal, get the goalie to freeze the puck to get a face off, try to win the face off to get puck possession, give it to the Sedins to cycle it to death for a scoring opportunity.
Even the PP. It was once tops in the league. Teams figured out how to defend it, but AV couldn't come up with another successful way to run the PP.

Dont worry, the systems will change day 1 next year .... as AV will be fired this offseason ...... unless the impossible happens

surprising series didn't think it will be 3-0!! Niemi is fantastic.. Henrik Sedin sucks especially in game 3 took so many penalties and forced his teammates to take some!!

Niemi has been the best goaltender of these still young playoffs, Quick is not far behind after a 2 game dismal start. Niemi's body position is the best I've seen it. The man is square to the shooter, shoulders square and forward, he is putting himself in the best position to make the toughest saves, the skate-saves with both legs in close. He is mastering his angles and seeing the whole ice.Collecting many HOF Cards, Old OPC, Old Parkhurst, Old Topps.

Don't start wetting yourselves over Niemi. Both Schneider and Luongo have been forced to make more big saves, even with Schneider's third period meltdown. The Canucks aren't really giving him anything to stop and they can't get to the giant rebounds he's leaving out. I'm not saying he isn't good, I'm just saying he's the one guy the Canucks are making look better than he's actually being made to play.
Bieksa became emberrasing yesterday complaining about the embelishment. I mean, we all see it, but trying to turn around accusations never looks good. I never agreed that the Canucks were as bad on diving/embellishing as the people who already hate them like to say they are, but Bieksa trying to use the media is bush league in my mind. Desperate move by a guy who doesn't know what else to do.
