I think what gets lost in my assessment of Trotz is his style of defense first/pick up the point as opposed to none doesn't translate to the playoffs. I see the point in getting points in the regular season but if you play that way all the time, when it's do or die in the playoffs, you can't play like that. It's win or go home. Regular season you lose you get to come back another night and play. It's a mentality that bothers me. Sorry if it rubs people the wrong way with what I'm saying but the culture has to change for us to get ahead come playoff time.
Now if Dumont and Hornqvist were truly nursing health issues, one thing should've happened, call ups from Milwaukee to take either one or both of their places in the lineup. Didn't we deal with this earlier in the year against Detroit and we basically played with 16 guys, 5 of which were defensemen? Did we not learn from that mistake?
