I tend to trust the guys that played for me before... so those guys are going to have to earn my trust before I let them play for me.... and the only way to earn my trust is... to play for me... so it's good to see them fighting for a chance to... you know...trust is a big thing.'
Trotz: I thought Fiddler was really solid tonight.
Reporter: Coach, Fids wasn't in the lineup
Trotz: Yeah, he was making a pancake dinner for my kids tonight so the wife could get out of the house for a while... he brings it... and I trust him.
About to walk over to the arena..
