I'm in this camp as well. Trotz has been given just enough rope to hang himself with this year with a moderately talented offensive team, and it looks like that's exactly what he's going to do.

There is no immediate candidate that sticks out and screams to me "I'm a good fit to replace Trotz". Tippett would have been a good candidate, but he is now in Phoenix. I don't think Lambert would be the best choice either necessarily. Peterson deserves a shot somewhere, but that wouldn't be too drastic of a change and unfortunately cannot be looked upon as a long-term solution.

Definitely will be a true franchise defining moment tomorrow night. I doubt ownership will allow this to continue for too long if it impacts attendance as we all know it will. The pressure will be put on Poile to find a solution and Trotz's head will definitely be an option presented...
What about Peter Laviolette? Last I heard, he was still working as an analyst at TSN. He just seems like a guy Poile would like.

I have a gut feeling that this is the year that Trotz finally gets the axe, and it could come within the next five games if this keeps up.
