Canucks GM Comments on Future of Coaching Staff

The Vancouver Canucks didn't expect to be in this situation. The team has started the 2022-23 without a win and remain the league's only team who has yet to register two points for a victory. Management has admitted they are not happy with their top players and need more out of them immediately. GM Patrik Allvin also recently commented on the coaching staff and surprisingly it seems like that's not going to change any time soon:

Yeah, the coaching staff from Day One, we have good communication and we're working together and we're going to find a way out of this. I'm the general manager, so I'm as responsible as the coaches and the players and we're all working together. I see the hard work the coaching staff is putting in every day and my job is to always look at options to get better and support them.

The Canucks have blown several two-goal leads to start the season and appear to have less firepower up front then they thought, and more holes on defense than originally expected. And while Allvin seemed to back Boudreau for now, his comments regarding the structure of the team certainly has some on notice....

I think teams started to take us light. It was something we wanted to address going into the season and part of it was finding more structure and accountability in systems play. We're a talented team, but we need to get this team and this group to play together as a group and a team

If the Canucks continue to lose the rest of this week and into next, expect to see some drastic changes in Vancouver and it's either going to be a core piece changing teams or the coaching staff will be replaced.
