I think I have one foot firmly planted in the "bring in a new coaching staff" bandwagon and the other foot isn't too far behind. I so think our roster is weak, but I firmly believe Trotz and co. has gotten more out of worse Predator rosters. This looks like a classic case of a coach loosing his voice and presence with his players. I think he has served the Predators very well during his time, but IMO it is just time.

As for Arnott. I have never liked his selection as captain. For a guy his size, he is too soft. In fact the Red Wing broadcast team prior to last night's game call him a finese player. His statements regarding stability of lines completely contradicts his call for the coaching staff to hold players accountable for penalties. The only thing you can take from an NHL player is ice time, which messes with line combinations. So which do you want, accountability or consistent lines?
