I thought so to, but looking back at our circumstances, I can see why Poile left Trotz in charge. Having a coaching change along with the ownership issues of this summer would have been terrible; we'd probably be in worse shape then we are now.
I know he doesn't have as much to work with this year, and I'm basing my decision more on the future...in that, I don't think he will ever win a playoff series as a coach.
If he couldn't win one with Kariya, Forsberg, Arnott, Dumont, Timonen, Vokoun, Radulov, Legwand, Hartnell, Weber, etc. then it looks doubtful.
As for the thread title, I agree, its time for a change. You cannot fire a team.
That being said, I think its safe to assume that Poile gives Trotz a free pass this year.
